Today's demonstration of the Grey Lady's continued journalistic perfidy comes in the form of yet another paternalizing propaganda puff piece by South Africa-based Times correspondent Celia Dugger, a video segment entitled quite simply "Affirmative Action in South Africa." With the possible exception of sports scores and currency exchange rates, virtually every single news item excreted by the Times that has to do with South Africa or, say, Haiti will be filled with as much disingenuous liberal wishful thinking and willful omission of reality as a Cat in the Hat encyclopedia.
The New York Times works overtime to snamboozle its readers into swallowing the tired old lie that all people are exactly the same, and that there is a place in heaven for those who devote their lives to uplifting the historically disfavored.
COTTers will know by now, after reading just a few posts on this brand new blog, that the malady of Western liberalism so forcefully endorsed in the pages of America's newspaper of record is rooted in a condition that is unique to people of European descent, namely competitive altruism. No other ethnic group devotes as much of their energy to ensuring the happiness of other ethnic groups as white Europeans. How many Chinese really care about the future of ethnic Tibetans? How many Iraqis have set up organizations to pay for cleft palate operations in South East Asia?

By willful omission, the New York Times fails to report on the really bad situation in South Africa today, 16 years after Apartheid: the highest rate of AIDS infection on the planet, the plague of murder of over 3000 white farmers to date, the ongoing descent into criminality and general barbarism, the unravelling of infrastructure across the board, etc, etc etc.
Reporting on failed affirmative action policies in South Africa without talking about the truth of the disintegration of that sad nation is akin to talking about cholera in Haiti without mentioning the January 12th earthquake.
