I have extraordinarily low expectations regarding the New York Times. It has not performed journalism for some time and its propaganda efforts are generally laughable. I realize that there is an ever diminishing segment of the population that turns to the Times in expectation of factual reports but there are segments of the population that will purchase tickets to see the amazing Egress. I'm sure that a Venn diagram would show an amazing overlap of the two groups. That said, every so often the Times prints something so egregiously base that attention must be called to it as a matter of common decency. I first saw reports of this recent dive into the cesspool at Tim Blair's place and at Michelle Malkin's. Today the New York Post picks up the cry.
I cannot add to the reporting on this. I admire Mrs. Starr's kindness regarding the Times but I am afraid that I do not possess it. I honor Cpl. Jeffrey Starr's courage, dedication and sacrifice and will pray that God comforts his family in this time of loss.
I will continue to disparage the Times as a contemptible propaganda organ that better serves the enemies of the United States than ever it has served American interests and commend others to do likewise. Suggestions as to how to hasten its decline are most welcome.
