‘The New York Times’ Is Working Overtime to Rehab Communism and Socialism in 2017

The New York Times has long been known for having a fondness for all things politically left, but the Grey Lady has developed a real soft spot for communist and/or socialist nostalgia this year.

The paper has been running a series called Red Century, which doesn’t so much just look at the history of communism as give apologists a very large platform to extol its virtues.

    Newspapers such as the New York Times must have a death wish beyond the fact that subscriptions are on a steady decline as people switch to online platforms for their news. At least in Canada such as the Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, National Post, etc. they at least envision themselves subsidized by the taxpayers just like the CBC.

    I doubt they are working any harder to whitewash communism than when they wrote with total adminration for Stalin and the Soviet Union.

    The New York Times also once had a real soft spot for Hitler and fascism, around the same time they were in love with Joe Stalin and were covering up news about his genocidal state caused famines in the Ukraine…

    But hey, whats a few million deaths really matter when you are ushering in the glorious socialist revolution, right?
