NY Times Tries to Help Islam's 'Image' Problem :: Middle East Forum

I too was taken by the propagandistic nature of this New York Times article (linked in the article below). But I didn't get around to posting about it.
But the Middle East Forum doesn't miss a trick and here takes it apart.
The New York Times, which rather fancies itself as "the newspaper of record", has a shameful history of apologetics: in the thirties it was an apologist for the rise of Nazism, and in the fifties it whitewashed Stalinism,  becoming a shill for Stalin's "useful idiots". (It was he, IIRC, who coined the term).
Rather than the "paper of record", the New York Times is, more accurately, the "apologist of record".
