The New York Times has been grasping at straws for years.
Desperate to find anything they can use to attack President Trump, the Times just made one move that could end the paper for good.
And this time, they decided to side with an Iranian terrorist leader over the President of the United States.
President Donald Trump just recently launched a devastating attack on one of the top leaders of the Iranian military this month.
And it led to the death of one of the worst terrorist plotters in the entire Middle East.
Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in a missile strike in Iraq that was ordered by President Trump.
Soleimani had conducted countless terrorist strikes against Americans across the region for years.
In fact, the militant organization he led in Iran was considered to be among the most dangerous terrorist groups in the entire Middle East.
This of course means that Americans of all stripes should be celebrating the fact that Soleimani can no longer target Americans with brutal terrorist attacks.
But in the eyes of the New York Times, Soleimani’s death should be viewed as a loss rather than a victory for America.
During their coverage of the strike, the Times essentially eulogized the dead terrorist sympathizer.
Newsbusters reports, “Reporters Farnaz Fassihi and Richard Perez-Pena warned Iran was united “in anger at the United States” over the targeted takedown of Iranian military leader and terrorist Qasem Soleimani at Baghdad airport on the front of Sunday’s New York Times.”
“The online headline deck tilted toward dire warnings from a united, America-hating Iran: ‘Iranians Close Ranks Behind Leaders After U.S. Kills Popular General — The death of Qassim Soleimani strengthened the hand of hard-liners, experts say, and undermined those who have tried to normalize relations with the West’”
The New York Times characterized Soleimani’s death by painting him as a victim rather than a ruthless criminal.
In the eyes of the Times, Soleimani is just another example of how the President is an evil dictator, never mind the fact that the Iranian military leader had been plotting to kill Americans in the region for years.
This is precisely the sort of political biased reporting that has led most Americans to abandon all faith in the mainstream media, especially outlets like the far-left New York Times.
When the chips are down and it’s up to a single decision between supporting America and supporting terrorist sympathizers in the Middle East, the New York Times chooses to stand with terrorists rather than with the President.
The Times even went so far as to compare the death of Soleimani to a political assassination conducted by the White House in violation of international law, rather than an act of taking down a dangerous criminal who was conspiring to kill Americans.
