Weapons of Mass Persuasion Pointed at The New York Times
Mass media, if not doomed by their own weapons of mass persuasion, they seem to be experiencing a death from one thousand gaffs.
April 25, 2008
In a classic case of what goes around comes around, the New York Times' employees are bracing for what the New York Post characterizes as bloodbath. According to the Post “the word from inside is that approximately 50 unionized journalists have accepted the buyout proposal, and only another 20 non-union editorial employees have gotten on board”. The implications are that “.. the ax could fall on as many as 30 editorial people in the company's first-ever mass firing of journalists in its 156-year history”
The latest use of the Times’ Weapons of Mass Persuasion comes on the heels of the recent smear campaign against Senator McCain. Former White House press secretary Tony Snow characterized the New York Times reporting as sloppy and tells Bill O’reilly, host of Fox’s The O’reilly, Factor “….Bill Keller, the executive editor, thought this was a sloppy piece of work and kept resisting it. There was a lot of pressure out of the Washington bureau. "Hey, we've got something saucy, boss." And whether Bill Keller, for whatever reason, knuckled under and figured that this is the way to sort of get along, I don't know.
Seems like the “what goes around” story is repeating itself throughout the mainstream media. If not doomed by their own weapons of mass persuasion, they seem to be experiencing a death from one thousand gaffs.

Less Orange County Register Paraphrase, More Feeling?Is it coincidental that fiscal responsibility, accountability and transparency, including funding of the Sports Park have dominated the Coto Discussion Forum for the last couple of weeks, and then what do you see on the cover of the April 27, 2007 CanyonLife
When is a retraction not a retraction? When it comes from the OCR! In the August 4 issue of the OCR’s CanyonLife, hidden under a picture of the Pet of the Week, appears an inconspicuous paragraph titled Clarification that reads”
“Coto resident Ed Caruso and Board President Bob Varo of the CZ Master Association disagreed on whether Varo, in a private meeting, told Caruso that he planned to fire the California Highway Patrol from traffic duty within the community. A story in the July 14 edition of Canyon Life/Rancho Santa Margarita News about a Public Safety Committee session may have been unclear in describing the exchange between the two men”
