News you will not see in the New York Times…

As if the New York Times hadn’t already earned enough of a bad reputation for biased reporting…its arrogant behavior in Baghdad will earn it even more.

While local merchants struggle to rebuild their stores on Abu Nuwas street near the Palestine hotel in Baghdad, security forces employed by the Times drive them away from their stores with AK47’s. Evidently, the NY times feels that the security of its personnel is paramount to the rights of neighboring merchants.

From the comments on the Healing Iraq site, the blogging world is already spreading the word to every competitor of the New York Times. It will be interesting to see how quickly this is remedied.

  1. Healing Iraq is great. Very honest and open. Zeyad let it be known what he’d like done with the Baathists. He took a lot of grief for it.

    I forwarded the URL of the post and the text of the letter it featured to Honest Reporting. They’ve been a very effective watchdog in regard to media hypocrisy and inaccuracy.

    Just trying to help.

    The URL to Honest Reporting (I tried to link–HTML must be disabled?) is http://www.honestreporting.com.

    Cheers,
