AP stands for Associated Propaganda; NYT stands for DNC

Two examples of how mainstream journalism has become simply an organ of left wing propaganda , without even a pretence of being journalism. The first is from the AP:


JERUSALEM (AP)—Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to his moderate rivals Friday to join him after the hard-liner was formally tapped to put together Israel’s next ruling coalition—an alliance that would dilute the power of nationalists bent on derailing Mideast peace talks.

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, in a seeming about-face, indicated she might be willing to come on board a Netanyahu government.

But Livni, a centrist, would certainly exact a high price: sharing the prime minister’s job she so fervently sought with a reluctant Netanyahu. Should he balk, his alternative would be an unstable coalition of right-wingers sure to collide with the Obama administration and its ambitious plans for ending 60 years of conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Got that? A right-wing government would clash with the Obama administration, because the latter has a “plan” to end the 60 year old conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. The right-wingers don’t want to end the conflict. They stand in the way of the plan to end the conflict.

And now, from today’s New York Times, a front page article that reads as though it were written by the White House press office or the Democratic National Committee:

A majority of people surveyed in both parties said Mr. Obama was striving to work in a bipartisan way, but most faulted Republicans for their response to the president, saying the party had objected to the $787 billion economic stimulus plan for political reasons. Most said Mr. Obama should pursue the priorities he campaigned on, the poll found, rather than seek middle ground with Republicans….
