The NYT Also Disgusting!

NYT Gives Democrat Lefties A Hefty Discount For "Betray Us" Ad
By Charles Hurt--NY Post Bureau Chief

The New York Times dramatically slashed its normal rates for a full-page advertisement for MoveOn.org's ad questioning the integrity of Gen. David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq.


Headlined "Cooking the Books for the White House," the ad which ran in Monday's Times says Petraeus is "a military man constantly at war with the facts" and concluded - even before he testified before Congress - that "General Petraeus is likely to become General Betray Us."
According to Abbe Serphos, director of public relations for the Times, "the open rate for an ad of that size and type is $181,692."

A spokesman for MoveOn.org confirmed to The Post that the liberal activist group had paid only $65,000 for the ad - a reduction of more than $116,000 from the stated rate.

That is such a load of ....

The thing is, had a Republican, conservative group tried to take out an advertisement, assassinating the character of an upstanding liberal Democrat, they wouldn't have run the ad for any amount, not $10 million dollars.

The NY Times is a complete joke.
