The Op-Ed on Bill Ayers that the NYT refused to publishTopics: Political News and commentaries
Needless to say, The New York Times had no problem publishing an editorial by unrepentant terrorist and Barack Obama family friend and associate Bill Ayers following the election this year.
However, when Larry Grathwohl, am FBI agent who infiltrated the Weather Underground terrorist organization back in August 1969, responded by writing to the Times to give the real story on Ayers, The New York Times to publish his piece.
Today, Bob Owens and Pajamas Media published the Op-Ed by Grathwohl that The New York Times wouldn't run.
It has become abundantly clear that the only way Americans can get the real truth anymore is from mainstream bloggers; the MSM has become so much of a far left, liberal progressive, multiculturalist, politically correct, mouthpiece that it's abandoned all rational basis for any credibility whatsoever.
Interestingly, back in September of this year Stanley Kurtz traced Barack Obama's partnership with former domestic terrorist William Ayers when the two collaborated at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a charity established to help Chicago's public schools that was commandeered by Ayers to promote his radical agenda. At the time, the association between Obama and Ayers had received virtually no attention from the three broadcast networks, with the conspicuous exception of a primary-season debate sponsored by ABC when George Stephanopoulos asked Obama about his relationship with Ayers.
As NewsBusters then pointed out in a piece on the Kurtz article (emphasis - mine):
... out of 1,365 broadcast evening news stories about Obama prior to the end of the primaries, only two mentioned Ayers -- one a brief mention of the debate question on the April 17 Nightly News, and the other a World News Sunday story about McCain raising the Ayers issue on This Week.As we all know now, the answer to NewsBusters question was a resounding "no" - the mainstream media never did, and still hasn't, told the truth about Bill Ayers and Barack Obama.
With just 42 days left until Election Day, the broadcast networks (had) not presented a single in-depth report on Obama's relationship with Ayers. But Kurtz's review of the documents at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) shows the two "worked as a team to advance the CAC agenda," which "flowed from Mr. Ayers's educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism."
... Kurtz has painstakingly documented the connections between Barack Obama and the radical left. The only question is, will the so-called mainstream media find any of this worth reporting between now and Election Day?
