Op Ed JOKE from NYT

So here is an opinion piece in the NEW YORK TIMES by Muammar Ghadafi.

It is absolutely hilarious. His deep and insightful reasoning (read: thinly veiled evil-genius plan to destroy Israel) for why a one-state solution for Jews and Palestinians is just plain good common sense is nothing more than the usual mantras of deception that the Arab street are trying to force on the Western world.

One of the basic maxims of propaganda is that that if the message is repeated enough times, people will start to take it for granted as legitimate information – regardless of whether or not what is being said has any basis in reality whatsoever.

Thank you, NYT for your willing help on that. You should be very proud of yourself for giving the murderous, plane-hijacking, tyrannical despot who is the sworn enemy of your country the opportunity to use your vast distribution network to reinforce his message.

OH but the best part is at the end: “Muammar Qaddafi is the leader of Libya.”

I can’t believe we still consider this to be journalism.
