NYT scrubs Obama's failure

Thomas Lifson
The New York Times has been caught red-handed sending unfavorable news about the Obamas down the memory hole. Tim Blumer at Newsbusters lays it all out in detail here. Blogger Weasel Zippers first spotted the Times deep-sixing prose datelined Copenhagen, reporting the stunning rejection. It made the Obamas look so bad that other journalists, who use the Times as their lodestar, might get the impression that letting the public learn the president humiliated himself and America in Copenhagen is OK now.

So the report disappeared in a very curious way. A new dateline was inserted, Washington, DC, and a second author added, along with material reporting the 25 minute with Gen. McChrystal. But the prose casting the Obamas in the light of failure and rejection was removed, and cannot be found on the Times with a word string search.

Times readers and the rest of the establishment media can safely pretend that the president and his wife didn't make buffoons of themselves in front of the whole world.
