‘The Gray Lady Winked’ NY Times Welcomes Hitler, Stalin, Castro

Since Russia is waging a unilateral war against Ukraine, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is often seen as a harmful force. New York Times. But Bar Has not always allied against the dictators and the powerful of history.

One of them BarThe most common allegation against former President Donald Trump was his alleged soft stance on authoritarian leaders like Putin. Bar Historically the same soft spot for dictators has been shown, as is abundantly documented in Ashley Rindsberg’s book The gray lady’s eyes matched (Published under his own imprint, Midnight Oil).

Match the eyes From Adolf Hitler in Germany and Joseph Stalin in Russia to the Vietnam and Iraq wars, under the patronage of those who conducted the Ochs-Salzburger family, the paper focuses on misleading coverage of confusing, sometimes historical events, wars and the rise of dictatorial leaders. The paper dates from 1896.

It plunges into the fascinating, often horrific history of paper coverage of historical tragedies such as the rise of Nazism in Germany and Soviet communism.

Reporter Frederick Berchal reduced Jewish persecution and racist violence to the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics. In addition to headlines such as “The Greatest Athletic Show in History”, some bad predictions were made about Nazi Germany in the run-up to the Olympics, in which it would be “the last chance for racial intolerance” in Germany.

In addition to the book’s own strong content, Match the eyes Has given valuable pointers that have taken this reader to some stunning past pieces. How about a tragic prophecy from March 1933?

Frederick T., the European correspondent for the New York Times. Speaking to radio listeners across the country in a rebroadcast speech from Berlin yesterday, There was no reason to fear that Adolf Hitler and his brown-shirted Nazis would rise to power.


Rindsberg writes that “The New York Times’ post-Olympic reporting was locked in with Nazi propaganda efforts, even if the purpose of the paper was not the same as Reich’s.”

The head of the Berlin bureau, Guido Anders, was also very careful with Hitler and the Nazi regime. Rival journalist William Shear, who is a writer The rise and fall of the Third ReichAndersen described it as “thinking less of the Nazis than most”.

Walter Duranti wrote this crude metaphor about the horrific death as a result of the Soviet aggregation, writing in a post from Moscow in 1933, “But – to put it bluntly – you can’t make an omelette without breaking an egg.”

“Journalist superstar” Duranti misses the man-made Ukrainian famine, deliberately engineered by the Soviet Union, known as Holdomore, which cost at least 4 million lives. Durante won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting, a blood-stained award paper still refusing to acknowledge.

The Bar The man from Havana, Herbert Matthews, famously met the rebel Fidel Castro in the mountains of Cuba in 1957. Matthews welcomed Castro’s January 1959 revolution, entitled “Cuba: The First Step of a New Era.” In purple prose, Mathews claimed that Castro had captured the will of the Cuban people and even claimed that his program amounted to “a new treaty for Cuba, violent, democratic and therefore anti-communist.” Again, yes.

The author seems to be most personally terrified Bar‘Holocaust treatment. Although running a Jewish family Times, The paper felt no obligation to cover what it called “the greatest genocide in history” – in a story buried on page five.

Rindsberg argued that the paper’s publishing family had deliberately silenced Holocaust coverage because they were Jewish themselves, and that publisher Arthur Hayes Salzberger did not think he could risk publishing his paper as a “Jewish newspaper.” The word “Jew” lacked the Auschwitz release story.

Coming to the second part of our review: more crude anti-Israel bias and the emergence of an internal “grown” brigade of paper.
