Mediacrity nails John Burns of the New York Times for a disgraceful puff piece on leftwingnutjob Ramsey Clark:
The New York Times rewrote the dictionary today in a puff piece on Ramsey Clark, the nauseating former Lyndon Johnson crony who never met a mass murderer or Third World dictator he didn't like.
"In Defending Hussein, an American Contrarian Seeks to Set the Historical Record Straight" is the title of the gag—inducing story by John F. Burns. Clark, Burns says, is "one of America's more renowned contrarians" —— a word ordinarily used in finance to describe an investor who buys stocks that are out of favor. I've never heard it used to describe despicable shysters who make a habit of defending the mass—murders in Rwanda and Slobodan Milosevic.
Burns mentions Milosevic and a bunch of other mutts, but leaves out the Rwanda killers and, more recently, the Palestinian terrorists sued in a U.S. court by the family of a victim. The main focus of the piece is what a great guy Clark is, and how the poor dear has to pay out of his own pocket when he flies around defending mass—murderers. He ignores how Clark has become a mouthpiece for ANSWER and other far—left groups.
