Why is the NYT doing a story about the mass media?
article By now you’re probably thinking, wow, I don’t think I’ve heard the last of this.
I’ve got a story coming out about how the New York Times is doing a massive cover-up over the mass shootings that have occurred in the US in recent years.
So, you know, I’ll get to it in a second.
But first, let me introduce you to the guy who actually wrote the piece I was about to tell you about.
The guy is Jonathan Landay, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who covered the events of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombings for the New Yorker.
But he’s also a professor at the University of Missouri, Columbia, and author of several books, including the bestseller The Bombing of America: The Truth Behind the Cover-Up.
Landay recently spoke with me about the cover-ups that have gripped the country, and the implications of this mass shooting that he’s chronicled in his new book.
And the conversation has been edited for length and clarity.
First, let’s start with some background.
Jonathan Landy has written a lot about mass media coverage in recent decades.
What do you think of the New Yorkers handling of the cover up?
Jonathan Landay: I think the media cover-down is something that’s actually quite typical of the US.
The New York press has been doing cover-Ups for decades, from the 1950s and 1960s through the ’70s.
And I think that the story of this cover-Up was not only typical of that era, it was also typical of what happened over the last few decades in America.
So it was quite predictable and predictable that there would be a cover-UP story over this particular event.
I think there’s been this kind of over-cautious, almost apologetic attitude in some aspects of the media that they’ve always tried to pretend to be the watchdog over the press and the government.
And they’ve been able to do this because they have very good relationships with the press, and they have a strong sense of self-interest in what they do.
But I think they’ve fallen into the trap of thinking that because they’re so good at what they’re doing, they have no problem telling the truth.
And in fact they’ve gotten it wrong a lot of times.
But they’ve also been very good at the cover ups.
They’ve done so many things, from lying about Watergate to fabricating events in Iraq and Afghanistan to trying to smear critics and smear journalists.
So they’ve just gotten so good and so good, I think, at covering up and at covering each other.
And what I think has happened is that when they’ve had their moment of success, they’ve used that to cover up, and it’s led to a lot more mass shootings.
And there’s this tendency in the American media to put the burden of responsibility on those who’ve committed these mass shootings to a much more personal, and to a more partisan, group.
And that’s what I’ve been seeing, particularly in the last year or so, particularly since 9/17, and in the context of this new mass shooting, and I think it’s very dangerous.
I’m not saying that there’s nothing wrong with covering up, but there’s also been a lot that’s been done by the media and the press to cover it up, to cover the coverup.
And, of course, you also have the issue of political correctness.
You have to be politically correct.
And if you don’t be politically conservative, then you’re not going to cover something that you find offensive.
And, of all the mass killings that have happened in the U.S. since 9-11, 9/12 has to be on the top of the list.
And as I say, I’ve covered all the major ones.
I cover the attacks that occurred on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.
And then I cover Columbine.
And Columbine was not the only one.
I covered the Boston bombings and the bombings in New York City.
And so the number of mass shootings in the United States has really gone up over the past few years.
And yet there are no major cover-overs.
And a lot has been done to try to make it seem like it’s not.
The most recent one is a story by Newsweek that has the cover on the front page, but the front is a blank.
The back cover says, The Mass Shooting Story, from Newsweek, February 25, 2017.
So this is the cover of the magazine that’s going to be featured on the cover.
And you can read the entire article in the article that Newsweek put out, but I wanted to give you a quick preview of what I thought about that story.
Jonathan, I was just wondering if you could talk about what the cover story was about.
I understand that Newsweek is one of the newspapers that’s covering this.
Is it an accurate account of the
