NYT’s propaganda machine: Iraq WMD, Russiagate & Trump’s ‘Racism’ (Video)

  • The Duran Quick Take: Episode 282.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss a recent leaked audio of a New York Times employee town hall where NYT Editor-in-Chief Dean Baquet told his staff to ditch the Russian collusion hoax that they were pushing for nearly three years and start focusing on President Trump’s “racism.”

The audio was leaked to Slate Magazine, which published a transcript Thursday.

During the town hall Baquet is heard congratulating his staff for winning two Pulitzer Prizes on the fake Russia collusion story. The Times obviously has no remorse for pushing the biggest media hoax on the country for the last three years.

Baquet congratulated his staff for pushing this monstrous lie.

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.”

Byron York reported on the leaked audio in The Examiner:

In the beginning of the Trump administration, the Times geared up to cover the Russia affair, Baquet explained. “Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice? That was a really hard story, by the way, let’s not forget that. We set ourselves up to cover that story. I’m going to say it. We won two Pulitzer Prizes covering that story. And I think we covered that story better than anybody else.”

But then came the Mueller report, with special counsel Robert Mueller failing to establish that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to fix the 2016 election. “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened,” Baquet continued. “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.’ And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”

Baquet used the gentlest terms possible — “the story changed” — but the fact is, the conspiracy-coordination allegation the Times had devoted itself to pursuing turned out to be false. Beyond that, Democrats on Capitol Hill struggled to press an obstruction case against the president. The Trump-Russia hole came up dry.

Now, Baquet continued, “I think that we’ve got to change.” The Times must “write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions.”

Having been brought up reading the NYT from the 5th grade on, I’d heard that slur from time to time and always brushed it off as fringe. Now, it doesn’t seem to be so fringe after all, but more like mainstream truth in advertising.

This is what pretty much ALL of MSM is – an unashamed propaganda arm for either the ruling Government or the wannabes. Either way, be it secret services, or the Ruling Class Aristocrats, the top Corporations, the Ruling class pollies, they hold the reigns of the country, they use all MSM outlets from gutter rags like the Daily Mail to Hollywood to effect their perception manipulation of the masses. This NYT issue shows that, just that for once they were shown to be doing it – blatantly and proudly. It’s just another illustration of the “culture”, the societies of the… Read more »

The Judiazed Trans-Atlantic system. Hollywood was built by Jewish immigrants. The American dream itself is a Jewish concoction. While they promoted cultural degeneracy to be embraced by the Goyim, they remained insulary, in the spirit of their racist and supremacist dogmas. The scheme is very intelligent, because so many goy secular and religious are onboard with their goals and way of doing business.

I find it difficult to accept that the NY Times was somehow the paper of an objective record until recent decades. It was in 1946 the official paper of record for the US government. The story of Wilfred Burchett illustrates this well. Burchett was the first western journalist to visit Hiroshima after the atomic bombing of that city. He wrote an article entitled the “Atomic plague”. What he documented in that story was the first news to the public for what is now known as radiation sickness. The New York times correspondent who was attached to Mac Arthur’s divisions, a… Read more »

I would say that ‘the paper of record’ is a perfect description of the official organ of the deep state.
Hiding in plain sight.

As have been saying openly for over three years…the western mainstream fake media is loathsome, despicable and calumnious…The once major trustworthy outlets, like this one, the Guardian, the Washington Post, BBC, etc., have denigrated themselves no end…and the National Enquirer HAS become a more reliable source of “news”…

What if Trumpledore IS the Deep State? What if the New York Times is running double-bluff cover for him? After all, no one has introduced the ‘its all about race story than Trump. And that is the story Basketstain is running with. What would Trumpledore have to do to make the Duran think he was anything but Deep Cover, Deep State? He is carrying out all the wishes of Israel. he is carrying out all the wishes of the Baratarian Piracy which moved north from Louisiana to Washington. What would be the sign that Trump is anything but Deep State,… Read more »

I wondered why the NYT were walking away from ‘Russia Gate’, the fairy tale they helped to create. The same with the Guardian, over in the UK, who admitted that UK intelligence, back in 2016, were involved in ‘Russia Gate’.

Whilst looking for the Guardian Article, which Google appears to be hiding, came across this one and more than happy to share.
