Stop gas lighting minorities. Everything is not OK
Salma Sitara

The New York Times track record on major political figures has often been blinded by ideology. Hitler was not only a socialist in his own day but would be considered a good progressive today.

In 1932 Times columnist Walter Duranty assured his readers “there is no famine or actual starvation, nor is there likely to be.” In 1933 after millions of Ukrainians had died of starvation he stated “any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda.”

It bodes well for the incoming Trump administration that the Times is diametrically opposed to them.
