NYT Public Editor: New York Times Betrayed Its Own Best Interests

Public editor Clark Hoyt admitted in an editorial published today, conveniently on a day of the week when most Americans aren't paying attention to news, that the New York Times violated its own written standards when it published MoveOn.org's "General Betray Us" personal attack ad against General Petraeus:

But I think the ad violated The Times's own written standards, and the paper now says that the advertiser got a price break it was not entitled to.

The Times says that MoveOn.org got the newspaper's standby rate, which means that it can't guarantee when the ad will run; however, MoveOn.org says otherwise, including that it got this favorable rate before without issue:

Eli Pariser, the executive director of MoveOn.org, told me that his group called The Times on the Friday before Petraeus's appearance on Capitol Hill and asked for a rush ad in Monday's paper. He said The Times called back and "told us there was room Monday, and it would cost $65,000." Pariser said there was no discussion about a standby rate. "We paid this rate before, so we recognized it," he said.

Of course, The Times now is passing the blame on to an unnamed salesperson:

...MoveOn.org paid what is known in the newspaper industry as a standby rate of $64,575 that it should not have received under Times policies. The group should have paid $142,083. The Times had maintained for a week that the standby rate was appropriate, but a company spokeswoman told me late Thursday afternoon that an advertising sales representative made a mistake.

[...]

Catherine Mathis, vice president of corporate communications for The Times, said, "We made a mistake." She said the advertising representative failed to make it clear that for that rate The Times could not guarantee the Monday placement but left MoveOn.org with the understanding that the ad would run then. She added, "That was contrary to our policies."

[...]

Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the publisher of The Times and chairman of its parent company, declined to name the salesperson or to say whether disciplinary action would be taken.

Since when does an advertising salesperson have the authority to offer such a huge discount like this one? No word on who gave MoveOn.org the same cheap rates on their previous ads.

And take a look at Arthur Sulzberger's ridiculous excuse:

Sulzberger, who said he wasn't aware of MoveOn.org's latest ad until it appeared in the paper, said: "If we're going to err, it's better to err on the side of more political dialogue. ... Perhaps we did err in this case. If we did, we erred with the intent of giving greater voice to people."

That's complete bull, Mr. Sulzberger. You didn't err "with the intent of giving greater voice to people"; you erred with the intent of giving greater voice to George Soros.

Naturally the NYSlimes would side with Soros's Moron.org. He's a wanted criminal in France who's on a drive to destroy the free elected system of government in the U.S., his own words. The democrats are in it for the money and could care less about the slime they associate with to get it. The Hsu fits so they keep looking for more criminals with lots of money. It's sad that the Clinton Crime slime family has taken over political control (in association with Soros) of the once proud, now anti-american, democrat party. I left the party when the communist/terrorists inspired Dimmy Carter was in office. I was on the way to Iran (temporary assignment to the state department) when the radicals took over and Dimmy simply took a nap. The democrats have been asleep since.

This was "almost expected" since so many pointed out that a stand-by rate didn't apply to an ad that mentioned the words "today".

What was even funnier was reading lefties across the blogosphere defending the stand-by rate, not by reasoning that the word "today" was used, but simply repeating what they were told to say regardless of the evidence.

But this actually is more verification of why lefty blogs don't allow alternative views to be posted in their comment sections. Obviously it is the fear of the blog authors having propaganda debunked right in front of their normally unquestioning masses.

The next question is how conservative political ads were charged and if there was a consorted effort between left wing groups and the NYTs to get favorable rates opposed to others.

This isn't a case of "we ran the Sears ad for less than the WalMart ad". This ad would have had scrutiny at the highest levels..even at the NYTimes. Which should make for interesting discovery if, as they should, the FEC goes after the NYTimes.

Otherwise Sulzberger will never feel the "Pinch"...and instead some poor staffer (or MailClerk)will just gleefully get thrown under the bus.

I would ask: "How stooopid does the NY Times think it reader's ARE?"

But then, they already KNOW how stooopid they are...since they read the NY Times.

Conservative Blogs Promote Wrong Facts About MoveOn.org Ad Rates

A number of conservative blogs once again put their reputation on the line when they falsely claimed that THE NEW YORK TIMES gave a special ad discount to MoveOn.org for their anti-Patraeus ad. The real truth is that any advocacy group of any type, including political ads, only pay a lower $65,000 rate for a full page, while purely commercial ads may pay as much as $180,000 when they ask for special favors such as placement in the newspaper

I eagerly await a retraction.

kim:

I hate to disagree with you pw, but this piece may be outside your usual definitions of editorial. Hoyt is the 'public editor', not bound to give the opinions of the newspaper. Written by an editor, it is an editorial. The confusion is that he is not really an editor, he is an ombudsman.

So his piece is really ombudsmanspeak. Editorial seems to be more understandable.

Let's review, Kerry calls those that served in Vietnam "war Criminals", has secret meetings with communist leaders and has his photo in the "Commie Hall of Fame" and "The Swift Boat Vets" (special emphasis on the word VETS) said Kerry betrayed them. Keep in mind too that the VETS said this AFTER Kerry gave his testimony to Congress. So they already had his words.

The MoveOn ad denigrated an active duty General before he even spoke.

Also when you say:

a rhyming play of words with 'Petraeus' and without the evocative 'his country'

I ask, who the hell do you think MoveOn was insinuating he was betraying if not his country?

I swear to god, you lefties will tell yourselves anything to convince yourself that you really didn't mean what you really meant after you had time to think about how stupid you were.

Chris G:

Pinch forgot one of the prominent rules of politics: "He who lives as a political operative, dies as a political operative."

While the editorial columnists like Rich, Dowd, and Krugman get away with slight of hand and half-truths (under the auspicies of hyperbole and opinion), the leadership of Times does not have this luxery. They have a responsisbility to report the news, not make the news, or even drive the debate. But this fact is lost, evident by the Times stock value plumment over the past 5 years. As a matter of fact, a 6th grader could look at the value of the Times stock price in relation to span of the Iraq war, and conclude they must be closely related. Maybe the shareholders should consider that option in during the next board election.

This is the same paper responsible for the ass-hattery of the Duke Sham Rape Prosecution coverage, the SMART terrorist finance freezing program, The International FISA program it continued to frame as "Domestic wire-tapping;" who would not report on the SBV claims, but only commented to come to Kerry's aid and tried to debunk the charges against him that still stand. It also threw Judith Miller under the bus for reporting that Iraq had WMD's, even as 2 tons of enriched uranium was being removed from Iraq by American forces in 2004, and even as it reported list after list over the past 15 years of Dem pols who made the same claim.

In other words, it is acting like a political operative. Which is bad if you are a publicly traded company. It is to the point now that TMZ, US magazine, and the Enquirer have better editorial control and credibility that the Times.

That's why I'm convinced most lefties don't have real convictions, they just spout off what they are told to say so they can feel like they are winning.

Lefties don't realize they are chastising hundreds of veterans in defense of Kerry. The Swift Boat VETS had every right to question Kerry's fitfulness as CiC based on his past actions as an anti-war activist.

If General Petraeus retired and was running for public office and hundreds of Iraq vets came out against him, I would take pause and listen to their beef.

But this is a bunch of military hating lefties questioning the loyalty of an active duty General before he even spoke to Congress which does not lead any credibility to what they have to say. They haven't been there, they haven't done that and they sure the hell can't wear the T-shirt.

I really don't want to revisit the while Swift Boat affair..Many people seem more upset about Kerry because he testified about atrocities, than the actual perpetrators, like lieutenant Calley, though I believe Kerry said he admitted his testimony may have been 'excessive' as My Lai certainly was ..He also met with the North Vietnamese in Paris in 1971, to discuss prisoner of war issues.. When there is immunity or a shielding of responsibility we have more cases like Abu Grahib or the Blackwater shooting a week ago which certinly diminishes respect for America in Iraq and elsewhere..Bush and American pride themselves on better behaviour than their foes so shouldn't punishment for wrong-doing be meted out rather than covered-up.

And yet there you are using the "what's worse" argument by comparing Swift Boat VETERANS and what MoveOn used in their ad.

But we all know when Kerry gave his testimony to Congress he wasn't pointing to isolated incidents that you are alluding to, but rather he lumped everyone together to paint a picture for Joe Public and thus he denigrated the service of every veteran.

Arguments like yours isn't about finding facts or searching for where the real truth lays, but rather how you can spin a fuck-up like the MoveOn ad and the NYTs complicity in the matter.

Your arg is just another typical arg by the left in support of the enemies of America: "perfection fallacy". Since the American military is not perfect, it is the Ghengis Khan army.

Witness the silence of the left about AlQ cooking children to intimidate parents in Iraq (and countless widespread atrocities of the terrorists). Also the silence of the left the Ahm visit to Ground Zero and Columbia.

And it gave fresh ammunition to a cottage industry that loves to bash The Times as a bastion of the "liberal media."

Why should anyone pitch a bitch. He requested to run an ad at the same cost as MorOn.org and they complied with his request.

That is opposed to MorOn.org who requested their ad to run on a specific day as evidenced by the "today" printed in the ad and it running on Monday. Yet they received the discounted rate that by the papers own admission vis the Public Editor went against internal policy not only for price but content, i.e. a personal attack ad.
