In recent years, The NY Times has become the mouthpiece of the angry left in the US and the BBC is about as anti-Israel as anyone can be.
Patterico has this post on his wonderful blog:
"Today, Byron Calame, the public editor of the New York Times, admits today that the paper made a mistake when it decided to run the Swift terrorist finance tracking story.
Calame says that two factors ultimately persuaded him that running the story was a mistake: the apparent legality of the program in the United States, and the absence of any evidence that anyone's private data had actually been misused."
No laws were broken. No one's privacy was compromised. In other words, Pres. Bush was telling the truth.
Is The NY Times going to apologize to the Bush administration or to the mothers of the soldiers killed in Iraq?
Irresponsible journalism has consequences. In this case, irresponsible journalism exposes our soldiers to death.
Like the NSA leak, these stories help the enemy of the US. After all, the enemy is at war with the US and that includes the liberals who read The NY Times.
The anti-war movement does not get it. They believe that our enemy hates Bush. In fact, they hate the US and would not hesitate to blow up The NY Times' offices if they had a chance.
Over in London, the BBC needs to be fumigated and restocked with journalists rather than anti-Israel mouthpieces. See Our enemy the BBC:
"It was the day that a host of BBC executives and star presenters admitted what critics have been telling them for years: the BBC is dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism."
Have you heard the BBC lately? I used to listen to the BBC on my little short wave radio. However, the BBC is a disgrace.
Yesterday, we took a small step forward. Someone at The NY Times admitted that it was a mistake to publish a story based on leaks and the BBC is being investigated for its anti-Israel bias.
