Maurice Greenberg, Republican Donor, Moves To Buy New York Times


Published by Tom Shakely on November 29th, 2006 under National News No comments
In surprising news today, Maurice “Hank” Greenberg, the billionaire insurance mogul, has been positioning himself to obtain majority shareholder status in the New York Times Company, thereby breaking the stranglehold by the current Sulzberger media family.

This would be big news, not only because of new ownership but because Greenberg has donated to Republicans in the past, meaning that he might be in a position to reinvent the modern New York Times as a newspaper that doesn’t print every leak and anti-American piece of terrorist-aiding propaganda it can find.

Well, maybe that was a little harsh, but the current New York Times definitely doesn’t have American’s national security interests in mind usually, and it would be nice to see some brave new ownership at the staggering giant.

Amazing. I hope it happens, I firmly believe that MOST Americans that did vote democrat this time around, that normally don't, have not gone liberal crazy. They done so out of raw emotion and there happens to be a lot of lost mislead conservatives temporairly on that side that will comeback home. And after this bunch that is in there now is fully exposed for what they are they will come back to stay.Once they figure it all out they will kicking themselves on the back side or letting others do it. The New York times, if remodeled, will help in that effort big time and who knows...
we can have programs protecting us without a news paper giving away government secrets and aiding our enemies with their journey to the world domination of Islam.

Oh for goodness sakes! The NY Times moved to the right years ago, with their anti-Clinton slagging, and with the Judy Miller reporting that actually led us into this fruitless war of choice.

This idea is behind the curve...I know you guys can do better, and I'm depending on you to do better.

Excuse me, Mudkitty? Are you saying that the NYT's treasonous activities of late was something other than liberal leftwing socialistic BS? don't have time to argue, heading off to church. I'll pray for you. Liberal blindness is cureable.

I agree with Gunz - I don't agree with Mudkitty.

Mudkitty- The only reason the NYT reported on the Clinton fiasco was that there was just too much to gloss over.

"War of choice"??
I though Libs were all FOR choice

mudkitty said...

Kurtp - not when it comes to frivilous wars...abortion is a personal decision, war is not. But then you knew that.

The NYTimes was one of Bush's biggest cheerleaders in the build up to Bush's war. So no, I don't consider the NYTimes to be left in any way shape or form. In fact, you can have it. We don't want it.

Liberals gave up on that paper years ago. Sorry you guys aren't up to date enough to know that, but if you want to know what liberals think, just ask one. And here I am.

Liberalism is a mental disease. It's the syphilis of ideologies, resulting in madness and blindness.

It's hilarious how the kool aid crowd whines and whines about the CAPITALIST, IMPERIALIST bias of the mainstream media. They can't get LaRouche and Chomsky's heads out of their behinds long enough to look at simple statistics concerning the Left bias in general. The Times was taken over back radical hedonists in the late 80's. I haven't followed the leadership, but since that time there have been anti-traditional values, anti-family, anti-faith, and anti-America articles virtually EVERY blessed day.

Anyway, great post over at your Townhall blog. I don't want to open an account there, or I would've pimped my recent post at the War on the War on Christmas (http://waroc.wordpress.com) on "Operation Just Say Merry Christmas" http://waroc.wordpress.com/2006/12/03/operation-just-say-merry-christmas/

You and your readers are free to drop off links to any Christmas "war" related topics and we'll excerpt them with link back. We are equal opportunity lampooners!

Happy Advent!

LaRouche is a rightwinger BTW.

prying1 said...

Sure, LaRouche is a right winger. All the people on the right follow him faithfully. That is why he has been elected to the office of President so many times all through the years...

He's so far to the right he is closer to God than John Lennon ever could be...

Go back to sleep mudkitty and we will too...
