ADAM NAGOURNEY of the NYT shows everyone how to be a Media Ho!
Thank you Bob Somerby for teaching me how to sniff these guys out from under the rocks they slither from.

Please note in Adam's hit piece on John Kerry that he mentions about a hundred times, Aide's and Democrats who say that JK is er struggling to find a er theme! And please note that the only supposed Democrat that he could find to go on record for his whole stupid piece was the (always ready to diss a Dem), Donna Fucking Brazile. Everybody else is anonymous!

So Adam...fess up...did you really talk to these folks or are you making it up? Whore...

2. It seems to be quite rampant amoung the Ho's
Write a story and say you talked to aides, etc...but don't tell us who they are... I mean if you think about it...the dude could quote some DU'ers here and say that he spoke to Democrats even though said Democrats have a clear agenda, IE: propping upo their own canidates....

3. He's been a "HO" for years. Here's the letter I just sent them.....
Edited on Sun May-02-04 08:25 AM by Hornito
To: The N.Y. Times

I watched it 2000. I watched it 2002, and now, in 2004. Once again, reporter Adam Nagourney is being allowed to dishonor his profession, and the Times, by writing columns that belong on the Opinion/Op-Ed (like today's column on Kerry) page, rather than in the news section.

Nagourney's bias is so blatant and well documented, I fail to understand why the Times continues his employment at all, that is, unless management subscribes to, and approves his bias. Which is it? I know the Times has received hundreds of letters over the last three-plus years complaining about Nagourney, yet here we are, facing yet another election cycle, and this poor excuse for a reporter is being allowed unfairly berate the Democratic candidate (again), and his party. It's all so reminiscent of the dirty work he did on Al Gore, so much so, it seems as if he's using the same material, but simply changing the names.

Between the Times' well documented, and long-term embrace of Bush administration-neocon propaganda, vis-a-vis the works of Judith Miller, Bill Keller, and Michael Gordon, coupled with your decision to continue publishing the biased reports of reporters/columnists like Adam Nagourney, one can only come to the conclusion that the Times has become an full-fledged organ of the Republican-Neocon right-wing. Yes, despite the fact you throw liberals a bone now and then (say, Krugman), the proof of your bias is displayed on your pages everyday, and neither you, nor your dwindling readership, can no longer deny it.

Sincerely,
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Yuma, AZ

5. Nagourney is such a putz. I had a running e-mail argument
with him a couple of years ago over his slamming of Gore. He's a complete wimp, and a neocon ass-licker. He's received so much negative mail now, he's removed his e-mail addy. Hell, even Safire publishes his. And have you ever seen Nagourney on shows like McNeill-Leher? What a wuss!! Seriously though, he's a traitor to this nation.

The bigger question, is why the Times is allowed to get away with this crap. The management and ownership of the Times should face charges for conspiracy and treason, for their part in helping the illegal and criminal Bush regime into office, and then helping them further, by supporting the Neocon plan for world domination. If it were up to me, I would see them all hang. Propaganda that brings harm and death, is not, and should not, be protected by the 1st Amendment.

7. Putz? Yes, but
"Traitor"? "Conspiracy"? "Treason"? "Hang"?

You need to get a grip with a side order of clue. Throwing such words around like that does not help a thing.

8. How about let's hang the fucker in effigy?
If you don't think the media is the biggest danger with regards to our Democracy then you're sadly mistaken!

10. Themes for Nagourney: Kerry, no message.....Dean....angry.
He will go after whoever is making a difference for the Democrats. He is joined by Nedra Pickler, and Jodi Wil...whatever.

They have a rhythm and a pattern. They do it well.
