NRO’s MSM watchdog.

No Picnic


Following up my earlier post on this subject: Just to be clear, the thousands of Islamists calling for poor innocent Ms. Gibbons to be executed today are not carrying small pocket knives, as one can see from the photo below.

Every other media report I have read on this (even The Guardian) has cited 10,000 or so people shouting “kill her, kill her” in Sudan today, but The New York Times (reporting not from Sudan but from Kenya) lowers the number to “hundreds” to downplay the true magnitude of the Islamist threat. It is just typical of The New York Times to distort the truth and then pompously claim it is the “paper of record.”
