New York Times Quickly Learns Cops Are Right, Protests Wrong

by Ken Layne

Twenty minutes is how many Friedmans?Shameful upper-crust real-estate brochure the New York Times is finally sort of covering the famous Occupy Wall Street protests now in their third week. We don’t care, because why is anyone waiting for some old newspaper to publish the news that everybody is making without the permission of the New York Times, right? But still, it’s funny how the first version of the NYT story about the Brooklyn Bridge fuckery by the NYPD was very quickly edited into a “tense showdown” that completely left out the part about the New York cops leading the protesters onto the bridge and into some weird Spiderman orange net trap, on purpose.

Honestly, complaining about the Corporate Media not reporting on the things you already know about is a waste of time. Corporate Media never reports on anything until they’re told about this thing by enough sources of Conventional Wisdom such as other media representatives, lobbyists, Senate staffers, the boss, and probably what they read on Slate or whatever. (None of this applies if the turmoil is happening in a safely foreign country, because then the editors can use dramatic photographs of foreigners holding up their left feet, painted green, because that’s how they “show democracy” over there, and then the newspaper can win Awards from other newspaper people. It’s magic.)

Anyway, the New York Times very rapidly changed this story written in a “factual way” to better reflect the NYT mission of ignoring whatever happens in New York until it’s big enough to be lied about, the end. [SOA Watch]

Liberal media inaction.

There, fixed.

On a side note, I saw Bloomberg News referred to as left-wing regarding the Koch Bros story.

Well it is, if you're comparing it to BigJournalism or some other Breitfart creation.

freakishlywrong October 3, 2011 at 1:30 pm

"Left wing" now means "somewhat factual".

Lascauxcaveman October 3, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Reality has a left-wing bias.

Ansnarkist October 3, 2011 at 3:02 pm

A well-known one at that.

All the news that's fit to print, three weeks out of date and wrong…nice work NYT!

Sue4466 October 3, 2011 at 2:59 pm

When they say "fit" they mean "fit the narrative of whatever our overlords tell us"

PalinzADummy October 3, 2011 at 11:45 pm

Not "wrong." Deliberately doctored.

Ah yes, that dreadful little bitch … what was her name? Judith Miller? Palling around with Scooter Libby and David Addington, two well-known turrrrrrrrists.

spinozasgod October 3, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I read that the NTY reporter who was arrested said that the protesters in the front led the group off of the walkway and onto the street chanting "the bridge is ours", and that is why they were arrested.

freakishlywrong October 3, 2011 at 1:33 pm

We all know the bigger story is whether or not New Jersey Fat Jesus is running or not. Corporate media want a Republican to win, so they can go back to even lazier reporting and still collect those big salaries.

Chet Kincaid October 3, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Perhaps it is merely like the incessant coverage of Rex Ryan, the Jets and the "New York Football Giants" on ESPN. You make more money covering that market than taking 20 tons of equipment to Green Bay.

Radiodead October 3, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Or maybe they just like to cover fat fucks because they are slow moving targets.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 4, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Almost as good as his description of Carl Crawford's redeeming, game-saving (season-saving!) catch. It was sheer poetry, how he risked getting grass stains on his unform by diving for that sinking line drive, proving that he was worth all the money Boston was paying him.

prommie October 3, 2011 at 1:40 pm

Well, thats depressing, Ken Layne, the Debbie Downer of Wonkette, and I had a case of the Mondays going on anyway. Is there no ass-fucking to report? Surely, somewhere, someone is ass-fucking. Ass-fucking is both funny, and salacious, and the only thing better than just regular sex is funny sex. KBJ, Ken, can't you find an "uplifting" story, something warm and moist, perhaps even? Something with naked people sexing in some amusing way? Fuck it, just post a link to the youtube of the donkey trying to fuck that mexican guy who was taking a dump in a field, thats funny as hell.

BaldarTFlagass October 3, 2011 at 1:48 pm

You can't blame them for deciding to simply reprint a NYPD press release when they finally got it. They need the time and space to print more "rich people are suffering too" articles, or reviews of $300,000 Bentleys – http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/02/automobiles/aut

I named my dick "Bentley" (and not because it costs $300K to jump on board).

elviouslyqueer October 3, 2011 at 2:03 pm

The Bentley manages to look richly imposing, yet tasteful, avoiding the chromed-Panzer strut of the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the soulless-limo look of the Mercedes Maybach. Crisply tailored shoulders and flowing haunches evoke Bentley S-Types of the ’50s.

Wow, Lawrence Ulrich, fap to "Europa Europa" much?

Interestingly enough, the quote you post here describes both the car Bentley and the Nostrildamus' schlong Bentley.

I'm not sure, but I think it means that Cheney thinks Obama should apologize to Bush for a) being black and/or b) winning the Presidential election by enough of a margin so that the Repukes couldn't steal it yet again.

poncho_pilot October 4, 2011 at 12:21 am

devoted readers? i worked at a convenience store (in Wisconsin for reference i guess) and we had several customers who were adamant that we save them copies every day. they'd call the store to make sure. we only received between 4-10 Times a day and they sold out most days. but even with those sales multiplied across the country by whatever number is accurate, i can't see how they stay in business.

so my answer is: it takes all kinds? yeah…

SorosBot October 3, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Just imagine if the current editors of the Times and Post were around in the 60s and 70s; Nixon would never have had to worry about the Pentagon Papers or Watergate, because the newspapers would have just refused to publish / investigate them.

PalinzADummy October 4, 2011 at 12:29 am

This is particularly painful to me, as a VN vet I know lost his life earlier this year. The VA refused to give him 100% disability, despite the fact that he lost his leg, two fingers, and an eye, rescuing his buddies from certain death. To his credit, he had a great sense of humour, and when MacNamara died, he burnt his prosthetic leg and dumped its ashes at the wall, together with a copy of MacNamara's book that he first shot full of holes. God rest ya, Lou.

After the way the Times enthusiastically engaged in the psy-ops campaign to gin up public support for the Iraq war, one can't really expect much, can one? I mean, Pravda was a joke, too.

Chichikovovich October 3, 2011 at 2:44 pm

Now listen: Pravda had a *great* daily chess column. The New York Times only gives a Sunday column, and Robert Byrne sucks. (I haven't looked for awhile, so maybe it's somebody else doing the chess column. But whoever they may have replaced Byrne with, I'm sure s/he sucks too.)

In the case of the New York Times, one can find failures all over the place.

Then he went and covered-up the coup that killed Kennedy, for the good of the country, doncha know.

OK, I'll bite. Who did the job? Was L. Fletcher Prouty himself the second gunman on the grassy knoll?

SorosBot October 3, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Aliens, I think. Just anything to avoid facing the reality that one crazed gunman actually can succeed in killing the President.

And that the crazed gunman just coincidentally had just come back from the USSR, to which he had defected after serving in the marines in intelligence with a specialty in Russian. In other words, just the amazing coincidence that the crazed gunman happened to be a CIA agent.

Most especially in their offices and on their pages.

I thought you said in their orifices and on their pages and I thought, "no! I'm talking about the NYT, not Republican congressmen!"

This is payback for my "farting" comment, isn't it, ntD? You watch yourself, buddy, or you might be chid yet again. Will user-of-owls take up arms in your defense? Eh? I'm betting not, young man.

He doesn't have arms. He's an owl.

This is the same mainstream media that went along with "enhanced interrogation techniques" because calling torture torture would offend the elite. So, no surprise.

To answer the question posed in the image alt text, 20 minutes is 760.5 micro-Friedmans.

I will withhold judgement until I hear what Peggy Noonan thinks about those rabble-rousers.

Since Ginia Bellafante's NYT article of two weeks ago –a spot on channeling of Paris Hilton with spell check — we only need the littlest Sulzberger to weigh in for us to declare the topic thoroughly covered. He did such a bang up job on the Madison protests.

Parker: I took some amazing photos of Occupy Wall Street.

J. Jonah Jameson: Parker! I want pictures of SPIDERMAN!

I'm betting he won't be your wingman, either, so there.
