NYT: “All the News That’s Fit to…Serve the Powerful”

Daniel Simpson, former NYT journalist was recently interviewed by Russia Today. In the interview he explains the way the NYT really works: “All the News That’s Fit to…serve the powerful”.

He has just published a book, “A Rough Guide to the Darkside“, where he explains how he “threw away a  career as a foreign correspondent, aghast at his paper’s pro-war propaganda. Instead, he tried to start a Summer of Love. Renamed Raoul Djukanovic, he had visions of changing the Balkans with a music festival. A Rough Guide to the Dark Side relates how that dream went spectacularly wrong, leaving him fried on drugs in a hunt for the meaning of life.”

It is never easy…perhaps not even in Mars.
