New York Times announces that only Obama will be allowed to approve stories in advance. It was revealed last week that the Times gave the White House the right to approve details in a lengthy story in advance. Now that the Obama story has run, the Times has realized that that policy may just be a violation of journalistic integrity and quickly announced a new policy that prohibits quote approval. In other words, what’s good for Obama just ain’t gonna fly for Romney. ‘Cause the Times is, you know, impartial.

Der leader is just doing what all communist lying bastards do. Manipulate and control the media. The NY Times just fell into line.

Now to really make some news, another outlet should take the times to task for allowing itself to become the Pravda of the US.

May I suggest that IHTM apply to the White House to get every post OK’ed?

I’m sure they’d love to hear from you… several times a day.

Ah yes, I recall the section in the Declaration of Independence and the follow-up clause in the Constitution regarding government approval of media content. I just can’t recall which position the Founding Fathers had on the subject…

Since when has the NYT had “journalistic integrity”? These people are oozing, dripping, sleaze bags. Journalists my ass. Well maybe by todays standards they probably are journalists.

Another piece of defecation from the New York Pravda. I see a chapter 7 in their future.

The way the NYT seeks to lynch good journalism, it should be called a noose paper.

Just saw on Fax that the NYT had ZERO stories on Egypt today. Nada. Nothing to see here. Move along, please, move along.

yesterday i had NPR on in the car heading out of work.. they repeated 3 times, within 20 minutes, that Obama was 8 points ahead in the polls.. WTF I knew from RCP polling average this was BS. Lo and behold, it was in their list (Pew), and older then 2 other polls (Rasmussen & Gallup i think)

Gave me pause..

In my opinion, there is a concerted effort to set the table, much like a point spread in a football game. The MSM & the polling they are doing are setting the table to contest the election results when Obama gets his ass kicked.

When the actual polling data comes in on election day, the exit polling will start telling a different story then the daily tracking polls done by the MSM. Then when the actual election results come in, the MSM & the Dems(1 in the same)will cry foul & contest the results. They will argue that the actual results shiould mirror their polling data, & when it does’nt, they will accuse the GOP of stealing the elections. I firmly believe this is part of the plan, & it will have traction. When reality conflicts with the progressive narrative, it is reality that must change. The GOP must be will to fight like hell to win these contested races, unlike Norm Coleman here in Minnesota. Thanks for tapping out & allowing Al Franken to be seated.
