The New York Times' contempt for 'ordinary Americans.'

Ed Lasky
The New York Time elites hold very little respect for the rest of America. This is particularly true for Republicans who are routinely depicted as greedy bigots. The paper routinely burnishes Islamic terrorism and terrorists - including the Boston Marathon bombers - running a long, front-page story that basically puts much of the blame on America for denying the two brothers opportunities.The Times has a very soft spot for those who break our laws - especially illegal aliens.

Now the paper’s pejorative views towards Americans has been made even more abundantly clear. The paper’s Alessandra Stanley extolls an Al Jazeera documentary on illegal aliens ("Al Jazeera Series Depicts U.S. Problem") that places six Americans who match reality-show stereotypes into roles as researchers who try to understand and empathize with real-life immigrants who have tried to come to America.

This is the zinger at the end that reveals the contempt of Stanley and her editors have for Americans:

“Borderland” is exploitative in a good way, using the ignorance of ordinary Americans to enlighten viewers about a problem so intractable that it’s often easier not to look.

“The ignorance of ordinary Americans” - that should be on the masthead of the New York Times, replacing the age-old cliché “All the News That’s Fit to Print” since the latter is absurd beyond belief given the paper’s bias towards liberalism. That very bias is illustrated by the contempt shown by Stanley for “ordinary Americans."
