New York Times does Pravda again

The Soviet journalists at least had an excuse -they had a perpetual gun held to theirs and their families' heads.

What excuse do the journalists and editors of the still free world have?

New York Times scrubs quotes that are embarrassing to Obama.

Deleted quotes include-

And the prospect of winning was too irresistible. After all, Mr. Obama has already envisioned the day when he could welcome the world to his hometown, never mind that small matter of reelection. “In 2016, I’ll be wrapping up my second term as president,” he told a rally in Chicago in June 2008. “So I can’t think of a better way than to be marching into Washington Park ... as president of the United States and announcing to the world: Let the Games begin!”


“They shouldn’t try to make politics of this,” Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff and a Chicagoan himself, told ABC News. “I think they should take some pride in the U.S.’s win, and you know, we’ll make sure they get some good seats once Chicago does host the games.”

Right out of Stalin's time -airbrushing embarrassments to the Dear Leader out of history.

These passages — demonstrating as they do the glaringly unfounded arrogance of Obama’s administration — have been conveniently removed from view.
And you know in your bones that, were it Bush who had gloated so, we would hear nothing else from Big Media for a week.

What made them turn into bootlickers of Obama? They viciously destroy Sarah Palin and zealously cover up Obama's mess(and there is a lot of it strewn all over the road).


Bump - oops! 'Pravada' in the title changed to 'Pravda'. Slippery fingers, impatient mind -that's me!
