The Wikileaks Follies and the New York Times

By now, almost everyone has heard about the Wikileaks Follies now playing all over cable TV and the newspapers (and of course, how poorly the Obama administration is dealing with it . . . that for another time). What I would like to point out here is my amusement at the temerity of the NEW YORK TIMES in its handling of the Wikileaks news.

This so-called “newspaper of record”  is so terribly left wing , biased and anti- American that their editors can’t even understand how stupid and outlandish they appear in their reporting. Please note the following:

“The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won’t be posted here.” –– New York Times, on the Climategate emails, Nov. 20, 2009

“The articles published today and in coming days are based on thousands of United States embassy cables, the daily reports from the field intended for the eyes of senior policy makers in Washington. . . . The Times believes that the documents serve an important public interest, illuminating the goals, successes, compromises and frustrations of American diplomacy in a way that other accounts cannot match.” –– New York Times, on the WikiLeaks documents, Nov. 29, 2010.
