I personally feel afflicted - by the crimes of the Times - and I wish they would comfort me. But that of course will not happen. Instead, the Times will continue to prop up the "meek, the week and the ignorant."
In a nauseatingly biased front-page article entitled "Lawsuit Loans Add New Risk for the Injured," the bespectacled communists at Amerika's newspaper of record go after the lawsuit lender industry, the people who put out those late night tv ads that say: "Have you been injured in a car accident and need money now? Oasis can get you money now, and there is no obligation to repay if you lose your case."
It turns out these lawsuit loan companies make a lot of money lending to people who are poor and desperate - exactly the demographic that the Times feel they have a moral duty to uplift and report on in a positive light, even if it means that they have to stretch the truth on a regular basis. The terms of these loans are usurious, and in another hilarious example of blame-shifting, the New York Times thinks this is wrong.
In what might be an unfortunate editing error, the Times actually publishes the words "meek, the week and the ignorant" to describe the types of people susceptible to taking out these sorts of loans, but the words appear - almost caption-like - in a paragraph that is right next to a photo of Carolyn Williams and her husband. Williams was shooting for the ghetto lottery when she sued her former employer, an Alabama nursing home, after suffering what she claimed was a "debilitating asthma attack" brought on by exposure to floor cleaning chemicals.

Floor cleaning chemicals?
Now, a responsible newspaper would have stopped right there to talk about real issues, such as frivolous lawsuits and tort reform, but not the NYT. As long as a minority is being oppressed, whether by the "predatory lending" of banks forced to give loans to unqualified applicants so that we might have "housing equality," or evil Republicans daring to put a stop to the madness of anchor baby abuse, or loan companies that gamble on lawsuits, the crypto-delusional reality fugitives at the Times will step up and distort the story to make it look like, once again, the poor minority is the victim of evil white capitalists.
Think I'm exaggerating? Consider the way the far-leftist lunatics at the Times chose to publish photographs of "victim" and "victimizer":
