Something very revealing just occurred at the New York Times.
Arthur Brisbane, an editor departing from the Times, in his final article made the following comment regarding the Times coverage of developments like the Occupy movement and gay marriage.
He said they:
seem almost to erupt in The Times, overloved and undermanaged, more like causes than news subjects . . .
Executive editor of the Times, Jill Abramson, couldn’t let that stand and quickly went on record saying, “I disagree with Mr. Brisbane’s sweeping conclusions . . .”
Really? Surprise, surprise.
I’m sure glad Ms. Abramson cleared that up for us! I was just about to order delivery of that paragon of Democratic Centralism… Oops! Did I say that? I meant Democracy and Centrist thought! Silly me!
Never mind that Ms. Abramson couldn’t even keep her flaps shut when it was this guy’s final article.
Still, it’s clear the Times wants to appear magnanimous in publishing this little indiscretion, and so it even seems to be — until we note that Mr. Brisbane apparently felt he could make his comments only as a parting shot.
And there is more.
Sometimes you just can’t keep loose lips from flapping, and Ms. Abramson went on to say something she may not have intended:
I agree . . . that in covering some social and cultural issues, the Times sometimes reflects its urban and cosmopolitan base . . .
Hmm… That interesting comment takes only a little deciphering:
By: “Some social and cultural issues” Ms. Abramson means all items on the leftist agenda: gay rights, public unions, global warming, abortion, illegal immigration, voter fraud, and infiltration of the government with radical socialists, communists, and Islamists. Just the ho-hum stuff… And certainly nothing for us to worry about.
By: “[U]rban and cosmopolitan” base she means the highly-populated areas on the East and West Coasts which, when added to the inner cities in the Midwest, pretty much sum up the bastions of the left in America.
So, in this small dust-up, we see not only what is on the agenda of the New York Times, we see exactly what they think of those of us who cling to our guns and religion in this here fly-over country.
Forward! with the New York Times!
I may order delivery just as soon as I finish reloading another 3,000 rounds of .45 ACP.
