“All the News That Fits Our Editorial Agenda”

September 28th, 2011, Promulgated by Mike

The last time I picked up a print copy of the New York Times I noted that their motto, “All the News That’s Fit to Print”, was still proudly displayed in the upper-left corner of the front page.

I mention this because of a story that went up early yesterday afternoon on the Catholic News Agency’s web site.  The story details the economic gain achieved by Madrid and the surrounding area due to August’s World Youth Day celebration:

Madrid, Spain, Sep 27, 2011 / 01:30 pm (CNA).- The Spanish capital city of Madrid came away with over $200 million in profits after World Youth Day 2011 held this past August, officials said.

The WYD Madrid press office reported Sept. 26 that the Confederation of Businessmen of Madrid calculated that the capital took in some $216 million during the visit of Pope Benedict XVI.

In August the Gray Lady published a decidedly negative piece on WYD expenses that led with the news that 120 Spanish clergy working with the poor had signed a petition deploring the cost of the event.

Now that WYD has been shown to have been an economic boon for the entire area one wonders if the USA’s “newspaper of record” will take note of that fact.  So far there’s nothing about this on nytimes.com and, given the paper’s recent anti-Catholic slant, I’m not holding my breath waiting for something to appear.

It only remains for the New York Times to come clean with its readers by coming up with a new motto that more accurately reflects its liberal and, especially, its anti-Catholic bias.

Might I suggest “All the News That Fits Our Editorial Agenda”?
