Mark Levin Unloads on New York Times Aiding Soviet Misinformation in Ukraine

Sunday Night’s Life, Liberty, & Levin, Mark Levin spent over an hour highlighting the very rocky past of The New York Times How its journalists served as misinformation pumps for the Nazis and Soviets and Fidel Castro. This is the old nudging. Times It is a regrettable history for veterans that they covered up Stalin’s forced food shortage in Ukraine. Levin tells the story of Walter Duranty’s evil career, which won him a Pulitzer Prize. TimesHe hasn’t turned his back. 

His best-sellers are compiled here Press Freedom, Levin underlined that Duranty wrote news columns for The Times in 1932 and 1993 “not only denying the fact that the catastrophic famine taking place in the Ukraine, but censoring Stalin’s role in the genocide of multiple millions of Ukrainians.”

LEVIN: Journalist and scholar Arnold Beichman explained that “The Times’ top brass suspected Duranty was writing Stalinist propaganda but did nothing.” Taylor’s book makes clear that Carr Van Anda (managing editor), Frederick T. Birchall (assistant managing editor) and Edwin L. James (later managing editor) were both troubled by Duranty’s Moscow reporting but did not do anything about it.

Taylor states that Birchall had recommended Duranty be fired. This recommendation was rejected. The Times’ longtime Russia correspondent was unquestionably a longtime favorite mouthpiece for the brutal Soviet regime, about what he wrote in the pages of the Times for a dozen years, and for which he was rewarded by Stalin.

Duranty in Moscow was the Dean of Foreign Correspondents. He was well known for his extravagant hospitality. He was able to enjoy spacious living spaces and generous food rations in an unfavorable city. Katya his secretary mistress, gave him a son, Michael, as well.

Duranty was left with a damaged leg from the train accident and drove through town in his Buick, equipped with the Klaxon horn of the Soviet Secret Police. Some of his competitors claimed that these perks were possible because of Duranty’s closeness to the Soviet government.

Eugene Lyons (United Press correspondent) suspected Duranty was on the Soviet payroll. However, no evidence seems to support that suspicion. Many later wondered whether Duranty’s Moscow status had influenced him to reduce his coverage on the Soviets.

Malcolm Muggeridge (remember the hero who traveled to Ukraine and reported about what was happening) would become Duranty.The greatest lying journalist I’ve ever met during 50 years of journalism.” Joseph Alsop would label him as “A fashionable prostitute serving communists.”

Levin said, “Twelve Years, Moscow correspondent.” The New York Times lying to the American people.” Levin closed the show by saying that, “The American free press, except for some bright spots is dead.” This is mainly because it has been dead for so long. The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Monday, Morning EditionNPR’s media reporter David Folkenflik suddenly joined the fight against Duranty. The headline online was ” The New York Times’ can’t shake the cloud over a 90-year-old Pulitzer Prize.” They’ve denied that cloud for the past 90 years. Folkenflik found: 

“He is the Personification of Evil in JournalismOksana Piaseckyj (a Ukrainian-American activist) says that she supports the return of the award. She was a refugee child from Ukraine who arrived in America in 1950. She is one of the supporters for the award’s return. We believe he is the source of fake news.

Anterior TimesNPR’s executive editor Bill Keller said that he supports returning the Pulitzer. Incoming executive editor Joe Kahn said Duranty “doesn’t come close to meeting the Times‘ standards.”

Although they refuse to revoke a prize, the Pulitzer Board did so in 1981 when Janet Cooke admitted to it. Washington Post The bosses were shocked to learn that Anne Applebaum had fabricated the story about a young cocaine addict, which won her the award for best book. Anne Applebaum (author of “The Smiling Book”), begins the smirk. Red Famine,Will not take a position regarding the return of the Pulitzer. 

This spring, Anne Applebaum joined Pulitzer Board. Duranty is still a subject she remains reticent about. However, she said she was reserving her judgment for the moment on the issue of whether or not Duranty should receive his award back. Her words are that it is difficult to see past judgments in the light of the present.

Aren’t those the same liberals who have treated every historical figure on the left side of the Left as well?
