New York Times FAILS to Mention Gingrich Was Cleared Of Ethics Charges. While YOU were Busy Watching GOP Rivalries: Warning! Progressives’ NPV Plan

This is what real journalism looks like, folks. Sheryl Gay Stolberg writes a 2,300 word piece about Newt Gingrich’s relationship to ethics charges (those brought by and against him) that ends with this rehash of his fall from grace:

In the end, nearly all of the charges were dismissed. But the ethics committee did find that Mr. Gingrich had used tax-exempt money to promote Republican goals, and given the panel inaccurate information for its inquiry.

Mr. Gingrich formally apologized, conceding he had brought discredit on the House. He had always   regarded himself as a “transformative figure” who would change the course of history, but on Jan. 21, 1997, he made history in another way.

The House voted 395-28 to reprimand him and fine him $300,000, making him the first speaker ever disciplined for unethical conduct.

That’s it. That’s how the tale ends. It’s as if they’ve quoted Newt’s history but added an invisible ellipsis over the final portion of the story. This is a doctored quote of the record. This is “agenda journalism.”

Do you think it’s relevant that after the events described above Democrats campaigned for a further investigation? Is it relevant that the IRS took them up on it, and that after more than three years determined that Newt did nothing wrong? Simply put, all the charges, even the ones Newt was reprimanded for, were bogus. Is any of that worth mentioning in a front page story on the topic at the New York Times?

The real journalists at the NY Times have simply decided their readers don’t need to know the rest of the story.



WHY doesn’t an MSM ask Obama:  WHY are his school records, social security records, Harvard Law School writings being sequestered at Interpol?  Or why Obama pays THOUSANDS of dollars a year for lawyers to protect his history?

Obama Executive Order Alters Your Legal Protections


Specifically, Interpol’s property and assets remained subject to search and seizure by American law enforcement, and its archived records remained subject to public scrutiny under provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Interpol had to answer to the FBI and U.S. courts under Reagan’s order. These safeguards were stripped away by Obama’s action the week before Christmas without debate or explanation. Obama picked the holiday season to make this radical change to minimize media coverage.

This order marks a significant change in federal policy and usurps the constitutional power of our government by yielding it to an international organization. Michael van Der Galien writes, “This foreign law enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against government and abuse. Property and assets, including the organization’s records, cannot now be searched or seized. Their physical operational locations are now immune from U.S. legal and investigative authorities.”

Obama has given an international organization unsupervised freedom to investigate Americans on our own soil without recourse or the supervision of our own government.

Robert Bauer and Anita Dunn (Spouse) in Obama’s White House. Nepotism? Or Political Protectionism? UPDATE! Bauer is “IN”


The Pro-Obama biased, protectionist MSM’s the likes of the New York Times are bloviating about the “One”, but WHERE are the true Muckrakers when it comes to actually looking into Obama’s background?

Paid off?

  1. Another example (NYT article) of yellow journalism by omission. But so often the truth does not really matter so much as winning at any cost. 😦
