NY Times Anti-Catholic Past (and still today)

1932 Pulitzer Prize winner writer for the New York Times Walter Duranty was a closet communist sympathizer that 'rationalized' the death of millions of Ukrainians during the famine of 1932-33. Duranty is sometimes quoted of saying of the death and misery in the Ukraine during this period as "This is good..." Referring to dictator Joseph Stalins tactit of genocide to rid the eastern Soviet flank of Catholics and Orthodox, thus ensuring communism and atheism being further entrenched against their non-communist neighbors to the east. Walter Duranty whitewashed Joseph Stalins crimes, thus revealing that the New York Times were then, and still today, very liberal and secular. Duranty, who covered the Soviet Union for the New York Times from 1922 to 1941, ignored Stalin's atrocities, including the famine that killed seven to ten million Ukrainians. Walter Duranty, who is "credited" for coining the phrase (referring to Stalin's purges) "You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs," said of the famine accusations.

I'd like to get on my soapbox and say that we need to learn our history. Before the liberals revise it to promote their decrepit movement.

Walter Duranty is a sad and pathetic man and the New York Times continues to split hairs and ignore this blatant fact. I used to read the New York Times daily, in fact it was my favorite paper for many years. When I began to be more knowledgeable of facts and current events, ie, doing my own research, listening to talk radio, the internet, and thank goodness, Fox News. I began to notice the liberal leanings of many MSM (mainstream media outlets). This eventually brought a difficult but correct decision of abstaining from reading the New York Times because of their hypocritical news coverage and outrageous promotion of the liberal agenda despite the opposing facts undermining many liberal movements.

I thought it was Vladimir Lenin who first used the phrase "You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs."

Regardless, Duranty wasn't a good guy. So much for the objective ideal of journalism.

After thinking about it, wasn't the phrase used by Robespierre in the French Revolution? (Perhaps I'm getting my revolutions mixed up again, though.)

Excellent post, Tito. Someone needs to tell the Emperor about his new clothes
