Times Gave MoveOn.org Massive Discount on Anti-Petraeus Attack Ad

The New York Times did more than run a despicable full-page ad denouncing General David Petraeus in advance of his testimony on military progress in Iraq. As NewsBusters reports, it gave MoveOn.org an astounding 61% discount on the ad, definitively confirming that the ad was an extension of the treasonous pro-terrorist propaganda campaign that the Times passes off to its bobble-headed liberal readers as news.

Even running the ad was unconscionable. But the financially floundering Shady Gray Lady let the well-heeled far-left fanatics at MoveOn.org have the prominent full-page slot on the day they wanted for a token $65,000. The advertised rate is $167,157.

In effect, the Times picked up almost two thirds of the cost of an ad that personally attacked a noble American soldier as part of the Left's campaign to cause us to lose the war against al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists in Iraq. Just its way of commemorating the following day's 9/11 anniversary, I suppose. What would you expect of a newspaper run by a slimy left-wing twerp who openly sides with America's enemies?

Like Dennis Kucinich, the New York Times serves to remind us why wiser generations responded to treason with ropes and firing squads.

What Texan said!

They didn't dare go that far themselves on the editorial page, so they "took one for the team" by giving deep-pocketed MoveOn.org a discount. Gosh, you gotta admire principle...or rather, lack of it.

Thank God for the internet so people can get their news from many sources and not just this printed
rag. NYT hurry up and fade away

The desperate Times calls for desperate measures.

Fortunately for level-headed people throughout the country, this has been a good old-fashioned wake-up call; proof-positive that the Old Grey Lady (suffering from senility) is in no shape, form, or fashion an objective, competent, trustworthy, or valid, (or any other adjective which should describe a national news source), resource to report on any news event.

The New York Times has become as newsworthy and objective as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Now there's a guy who needs to be slapped until he cries. Won't take long.

Ususally, companies give deep discounts to move merchandise. Is the New York Times having difficulty selling advertising space?

Between the Weekly World News and the New York Times the more believable paper bowed out with more grace and dignity

Cute pic of Little Pinch. He looks completely befuddled, addled, non-plussed, whatever you want to call it. "Brain-dead" does nicely, too. Kind of a "Look into the lens, Little Pinch; now, Smile!," Deer-in-the-Headlights type of look.

The lights are on, but nobody's home.

isn't it great that giuliani's going for the same ad space?!?

he wants to see if the nyt will give equal time for equal adspace for the repubs - what a grand idea!

This guy looks like the love child of Rosie ODonnell and Al Franken.
