A true hero of The Revolution. When we have completely torn asunder and paved over the evil Vietnam Veterans Memorial to baby-killers, rapists and mass murdering aggressors, we must place up it a solid gold 300 foot statue of Komrade Chomsky, our most eilte visionary and seer of truth.
Walter Duranty, star reporter for The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize winner, stooge of Joseph Stalin: was he too credulous, poor chap? That's what David P. Kirkpatrick, writing in the Times, said yesterday. Reporting on the Pultizer Prize Board's decision not to rescind Duranty's award, Kirkpatrick described Duranty as "credulous" but not culpable. Really?
In the early 1930s, when he was head of the Times's Moscow Bureau, Duranty was awarded a Pulitzer for a series of 13 articles on the Soviet Union. In 1932, the great famine began. The horror and brutality of that episode can hardly be exaggerated. The famine was not simply a natural disaster: it was planned and prosecuted by Stalin and his goons. Millions died in lingering agony. The whole story is ably told in Robert Conquest's classic The Harvest of Sorrow: Soviet Collectivization and the Terror-Famine.
With peasants dropping like flies everywhere around him, Duranty cheerfully cabled back to New York that although there were some occasional food shortages, there was "no actual starvation." That's good news, Walter! Just what we wanted to hear. Have a Pulitzer. We knew we could count on you to tell the people back home about the wonderful strides Joe Stalin is making--no need to exaggerate the dark side of things. Progress is hard work: idealists need all the help they can get!
There was some hope that Duranty's mendacity might finally have caught up with him. Recent protests in the Ukraine reached the Pulitzer Board. They convened. They deliberated. They decided. In an official statement, the Pultizer Board said that although Duranty's work fell short of "today's standards for foreign reporting," there was "no clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception."
It took me a while to stop laughing, too. Two whoppers in a single statement! One: as if "today's standards" of Pultizer-Prize winning reporting were something to write home about and, two: as if it were not patently clear that Duranty was a mendacious philo-Soviet hack who deliberately twisted the truth to suit the demands of the Kremlin.
The New York Times has now run 88 stories mentioning Michael Moore's Farenheit 9/11 since May 5, 2004 (77 days) or an average of more than one per day for over two months. That should neutralize millions of evil dollars the Republicans have invested in their vicious ad campaigns. With this kind of support Kerry can save his hard-earned millions and donate them later to CommunistsForKerry.com.
Nice going, Comrades! At our recent Politbureau session we have decided to award Comrade Sulzberger and Comrade Keller of the New York Times with a new two-door refrigerator (made in Leningrad).

Ramsey Clark, a leading America basher on the political scene today has endorsed John Kerry for president. Speaking to reporters after a February 27 Washington press conference to rally support for Haitiís Marxist President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Ramsey Clark said heís voting for Kerry because he would take U.S. foreign policy in a new direction.
Clark served as LBJís Attorney General in the 1960s and then participated in the anti-Vietnam War movement in the early 1970s with Kerry, just back from the war, who accused his fellow soldiers of war crimes and genocide. Clark was a lawyer for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and Kerry was a major leader of the group. A photograph at the time shows Clark on the same stage with Kerry.
