Cyber Cossack covers the protest at the New York Times


By Aussiegirl

Check out Cyber Cossack for a report on today's protest at the New York Times building in Manhattan. Ukrainians demanded that the Times rescind the bloodstained Pulitzer awarded to Walter Duranty, who covered up evidence of the massive genocidal famine engineered by Stalin in Ukraine in l932 - 33.

Are you kidding? They wear that internally like a badge of honor. Further the cause. Like the Nazis of old doing whatever it took for "Ze Fazzaland" so to do these liberal journalists. Lie, cheat, steal, whatever. Just make it happen.

I agree that it is a "bloodstained Pulitzer" that was rewarded to certainly one of the most reprehensible people ever to call himself a "journalist". For a short description of Stalin's artifical famine and the part Duranty played in it--and also to learn about Duranty's polar opposite, Malcolm Muggeridge, who reported the truth of the horrors he had witnessed--read this short article: Drug addict, sexual predator on both sexes and apologist for Stalin, British reporter Walter Duranty. Finally, from this same article, if you can stomach it, here is the Pulitzer Board's pusillanimous reason for not withdrawing the reward: Sig Gissler of the Pulitzer Board said that the prize was given for a story unconnected with the famine. Stalin would have been proud of such fineness of character and firmness of resolve.
