The Record of the Paper: How the New York Times Misreports US Foreign Policy

الغلاف الأمامي
In this meticulously researched study Howard Friel and Richard Falk demonstrate how the newspaper of record in the United States has consistently, over the last fifty years, misreported the facts related to the wars waged by the United States. From Vietnam in the 1960s to Nicaragua in the 1980s and Iraq today, the authors accuse the New York Times of serial distortions. They claim that such coverage now threatens not only world legal order but constitutional democracy in the United States. despite the fact that an invasion of one country by another implicates fundamental aspects of the UN Charter and international law, the New York Times editorial page never mentioned the words UN Charter or international law in any of its 70 editorials on Iraq from September 11, 2001 to March 20, 2003. The authors also show that the editorial page supported the Bush administration's WMD claims against Iraq, and that its magazine, op-ed, and news pages performed just as poorly. In conclusion the authors suggest an alternative editorial policy of strict scrutiny that incorporates the UN Charter and US Constitution in the Times coverage of the use and threat of force by the United States and the protection of civil and human rights at home and abroad.
