The New York Times article "How Russia Often Benefits When Julian Assange Reveals the West's Secrets" is nothing more than a tissue of lies. The sub-title of this newspaper of record ought to be: just making stuff up.
The article starts by noting there is no evidence of links between WikiLeaks and Russia, which is accurate. Yet the rest of the article is nothing more than an attempt to make the reader believe the claim is false. The falsehoods, misrepresentations and insuinuations begin almost immediately. The article contains at least fourteen falsehoods; falsehoods that the New York Times must know are false. In plain English, that is called lying.
WikiLeaks has issued a line by line refutation of the article. It is devastating. That the New York Times can be so easily shown to be, not merely an organ of propaganda, but that it is prepared to just make up its "facts", should destroy its reputation, forever.
This degree of mendacity raises the question of why a newspaper that boasts of its commitment to ethical journalism would so recklessly throw away its good reputation? The only possible answer is that WikiLeaks' placing of information in the public domain is seen by the neoliberal elites as a threat to their global interests: something the New York Times clearly values above journalism.
The New York Times article cannot be characterised as anything other than lying propaganda.
The New York Times is committed to the election of Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States of America. The New York Times knows that Clinton would continue the policies of supporting the interests of finance capital and the multinational corporations; policies which are against the interests of the vast majority of the citizens of America.
The New York Times, just like the corporate media generally, is nothing more than a propaganda organ for the neoliberal, globalist elite.
