The NYT Anti-Trump Jihad
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
The Times gives yellow journalism a bad name. It’s unprincipled disregard for truth-telling shames it beyond redemption.
Its rage over Trump defeating Hillary, along with longstanding service to America’s deep state, explains why it relentlessly denigrates the president for the wrong reasons, ignoring plenty of justifiable ones.
Its latest issue featured a tsunami of Trump bashing reports related to the non-issue of his son meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a private citizen Russian lawyer with no Kremlin connection.
The reports below would make Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels proud:
“Donald Trump Jr. Makes the Russian Connection” – a disgraceful editorial discussed in a same day article.
“The Trumps Embraced a Russian Plot”
No connection or plot exists. The accusation is malicious slander, a complete fabrication.
“Russian Dirt on Clinton? ‘I Love It, Donald Trump Jr. Said”
During the Trump Jr./Veselnitskaya meeting, no “Russian dirt” was discussed.
“Rancor at White House as Russia Story Refuses to Let the Page Turn”
Not as long as The Times and other media scoundrels keep hammering on it disgracefully.
“A Conspiracy of Dunces”
No Trump team conspiracy or collusion with Russia exists.
“Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian Lawyer: The Story Behind the Story”
The “story behind the story” is a non-issue, the illusion of something important that doesn’t exist.
“Read the Emails on Donald Trump Jr.’s Russia Meeting”
The facts they relate are polar opposite The Times’ distorted interpretation.
“Campaign Opposition Research Is Standard. But Not ‘Oppo’ From Hostile Nations”
America is unjustifiably hostile to Russia, not the other way around. No Russian “oppo” dirt was given Trump Jr. by attorney Veselnitskaya.
“Trump Team Has Frequently – and Falsely – Claimed ‘No Contact’ With Russia”
No evidence indicates any improper or illegal Trump team contacts with Russian officials at any time.
“Did Donald Trump Jr. Break the Law?”
Not by meeting with attorney Veselnitskaya, his constitutional right.
All of the above 10 reports on a non-issue were in a single Times edition – indisputable proof alone, showing how the self-styled newspaper of record mocks legitimate journalism.
