Trampling on Truth: A NYT Specialty
by Stephen Lendman
The NYT is a national disgrace.
It operates as a propaganda proliferator for undemocratic Dems and their humanity-destroying agenda.
Rubbish it calls fit to print isn't fit to read.
Its fake news war of words on all things Russia would make Joseph Goebbels proud.
Most everything it features on Russia's liberating SMO turns truth on its head and tramples on it.
What its so-called editors called "Putin's terrible war (sic)" is fully compliant with UN Charter principles against the scourge of US-orchestrated and directed aggression by Nazi-infested Ukraine.
It lied claiming that Kiev "won repeated and decisive victories against Russian forces (sic), clawed back some of its lands and cities (sic) and withstood lethal assaults on its infrastructure (sic), the war is at a stalemate (sic)."
Reality on the ground is worlds apart from the above rubbish.
After liberating strategically important Soledar, Donetsk on January 12, freeing Artyomovsk is next.
On Monday, Donetsk head, Denis Pushilin, reported the following:
Russian forces liberated "major heights" around the settlement of Kleshcheyevka south of Artyomovsk, cutting the regime's Seversk-Artyomovsk supply lines," making its control over the area increasingly untenable.
At this time, Russian forces are advancing all along Donetsk frontline areas, according to Pushilin.
Along with Krasnopolyevka, Dvurechye was also liberated from the scourge of Nazified occupation.
Since last February, Russia forces and Donbass freedom fighters liberated 340 communities.
At this time, Artyomovsk is virtually encircled and cut off from the regime's ability to prevent its liberation ahead, what will be another major strategic loss for Nazi-infested Ukraine and its US/Western paymasters.
What the NYT falsely called "decisive victories" by the US-installed regime are major defeats.
A further litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed, falsely claiming the following:
"Cruel, seemingly random Russian missile strikes at civilian targets have become a regular horror (sic)."
Fact check: High-precision Russian munitions exclusively strike military targets.
It's in stark contrast to how Ukrainian Nazis repeatedly terror-shell residential and other nonmilitary areas of Donbass and elsewhere in Russia.
And this Times perversion of reality:
"On Jan. 14, a Russian missile struck an apartment building in Dnipro, in central Ukraine (sic)."
"Among the at least 40 dead were small children, a pregnant woman and a 15-year-old dancer."
Fact check: Russia had nothing to do with what happened — caused by an exploding regime air defense missile.
Nor did the Times explain that the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies has been orchestrating and directing regime aggression since the Obama/Biden regime's 2014 coup in Kiev — replacing democratic governance with Nazi-infested tyrannical rule.
And no matter what weapons and munitions of every shape and kind that US/Western regimes pour into Ukraine, Russia is decisively triumphing over the Nazified regime.
It's at a time when a Quinnipiac poll last week revealed bad news for the illegitimate Biden regime.
A 60% majority of respondents criticized the real JB for (illegally) stashing classified documents at his Delaware residence.
"Republicans (84 - 5 percent) and independents (60 - 24 percent) think Biden handled the documents inappropriately, while Dem(s) are split with 41 percent saying they think Biden handled them appropriately and 38 percent saying they think he handled them inappropriately."
Over a third of respondents (37%) said he should face criminal charges.
His approval rating dropped to 36%.
Public opinion on Russia's liberating SMO shifted from earlier strong opposition to 44% of respondents now expressing approval v. 47% against.
Only 36% support the Biden regime's foreign policy v. 54% expressing disapproval.
On the economy's increasingly dismal state, only 34% approve of how the Biden regime is handling it v. 61% disapproving.
On the regime's handling of the porous US/Mexican border, public opposition "hit an all-time low."
"The previous low was a negative 23 - 67 percent on October 6, 2021" with the illegitimate regime in power.
On aiding Ukrainian Nazis, 33% of respondents said the Biden regime is doing too much v. 38% saying it's "about the right amount."
At the onset of Russia's liberating SMO last February, only 7% of respondents said the US was doing too much v. 45% too little and 37% saying aid supplied was the right amount.
The longer US support for Ukraine's aggression continues, the more likely it is that public opinion will grow more negative against continuing it.
Despite the most intensively ever waged geopolitical war on truth, the Quinnipiac poll shows that its effectiveness is waning.
But not according to NYT fake news — falsely claiming that "Western arms" made Russia "desperate (sic)."
And this Times trampling on truth, defying reality on the ground by falsely claiming that Vladimir Putin "shows no readiness to talk (sic)," along with falsely calling Crimea, Kherson, Zaporozhye and Donbass Ukrainian territory (sic).
The same goes for falsely claiming that Putin "is destroying (the) future (of) the Russian people" — ignoring reality that includes his near-80% public approval rating.
And this Times trash, falsely accusing Russia of "stifl(ing) independent media (sic), (along with) arresting thousands of protesters and many foreign correspondents (sic)."
The above, of course, applies to how Ukrainian Nazis operate and how things are increasing this way throughout the US/West.
And this Times perversion of reality, falsely accusing Putin of "trying to change Ukraine's borders by force in 2014 (sic).
And this Times trash, falsely accusing Putin of "leveling of towns and cities (sic), (along with) murder, rape and pillaging (sic)."
More of the same, falsely calling Russia "a threat and an outcast (sic)," while claiming that Ukrainian Nazis are "friend(s) and all(ies) (sic)."
And the empire of lies, its Western vassals and Nazi-infested Ukraine are "pariah state(s)," clearly not democratic Russia.
And falsely claiming that self-sufficient Russia "faces decades of economic stagnation" defied reality and ignored the dilemma facing the US/West.
The Times is blind to the reality that Russia, the world's most resource-rich nation, effectively shifted from Western trade it lost to increasing it with China, India and many other nonWestern states.
And falsely claiming that "millions of Russia's best and brightest fled" the country is another Times bald-faced Big Lie.
So is falsely saying that "(t)he true scope of Russia's casualties is also being kept from its people (sic)."
And defying reality by falsely claiming that "300,000 men (were) pressed into cannon fodder duty (sic)," — what applies solely to Nazi-infested Ukraine.
And calling Putin a "strongman," a "czar" defied his model democratic leadership and preeminence on the world stage — in stark contrast to rogue state rule throughout the decadent, depraved US/West by selections masquerading as elections.
Like other Western MSM, the Times is an embarrassment to journalism as it should be — what's virtually banned throughout the US/West in favor of state-approved propaganda, except by truth-telling alternative sources.
In print, the Times stands out as worst of the worst, a source to be shunned, not followed.
