Study shows NY Times journalists more likely to lie

Bloggers show journalistic integrity – call out New York Times on “vets kill in America” story in a series

The Scrooge Report:

Across America, Dangerous Lies From a New York Newsroom

Town by town across the country, headlines have been telling similar stories. Miami: “Family Blames Times After Son Cheats On Exam.” Irvine, Calif.: “Ex-Reporter Charged With Tax Evasion Testifies About Newsroom Stress.” Portland: “Ex N.Y. Times Editor Suspected in Two Loan Frauds, Credit Card Ring.”

Individually, these are stories of local crimes, gut-wrenching postscripts to the Times newsroom for the journalists, their victims and their communities. Taken together, they paint the patchwork picture of a quiet phenomenon, tracing a cross-country trail of cold lies and cheating hearts. …more

Power Line:

Crazed Veterans Spark Nationwide Crime Wave

It’s bad enough that the New York Times smears our military personnel when they are serving overseas. Can’t they at least leave them alone once they return home? …more

Winds of Change:

The Media Does it Again

But as usual, I keep asking the simple question – well, what does it mean? How do these 121 murderers compare with the base rate of murderers in the population? …more

Pajamas Media:

The New York Times Hits Yet Veterans Again

Bruce Kesler of the Democracy Project was among the first to note that despite finding the time to pen 6,253 words in this first article of the series, “the New York Times could not find words to put the 121 cases of physical violence by vets in full perspective,” by providing the context of how these deaths measure up against the number of deaths attributed to similar civilian demographics. …more

Prostituting for Politics: The New York Times Lies in Smearing Veterans as Crazed Killers

Interestingly enough, the New York Times also included automobile deaths in its tally of deaths caused by military veterans of Middle East wars. After fielding an enormous “investigative” effort to smear veterans with the “whacko murderers” label, the New York Times forgot some important facts: other people have access to crime statistics, returning military numbers, and know how to mash the numbers. …more

A Denver newspaper columnist is arrested for stalking a story subject. In Cincinnati, a television reporter is arrested on charges of child molestation. A North Carolina newspaper reporter is arrested for harassing a local woman. A drunken Chicago Sun-Times columnist and editorial board member is arrested for wife beating. A Baltimore newspaper editor is arrested for threatening neighbors with a shotgun. In Florida, one TV reporter is arrested for DUI, while another is charged with carrying a gun into a high school. A Philadelphia news anchorwoman goes on a violent drunken rampage, assaulting a police officer. In England, a newspaper columnist is arrested for killing her elderly aunt.

Unrelated incidents, or mounting evidence of that America’s newsrooms have become a breeding ground for murderous, drunk, gun-wielding child molesters? Answers are elusive, but the ever-increasing toll of violent crimes committed by journalists has led some experts to warn that without programs for intensive mental health care, the nation faces a potential bloodbath at the hands of psychopathic media vets.
