A friend of mine, who happens to be a pretty far left wing democrat sent me a free 2 month subscription to The New York Times (which by the way is way to far left for me and I would never pay for a subscription). I was reading a NYT article entitled “Guns, Fear, and Republicans” this morning after seeing several ads that appeared ON THE NYT PAGE. These were not some third party pop ups but were pop up ads embedded in the NYT page (presumably with the knowledge of their editors), one of which was right under their NYT banner/navigation bar at the top of each page. Another was just a box ad that was also imbedded in the NYT page. One was an ad for "Cheaper than Dirt” which among other things is a dot com specializing in on-line sales of guns and accessories (AR-15s, pistols, hi-capacity mags, ammo, you name it). The other was an ad for Bass Pro Shops selling smokeless gun powder used for ammo reloading (I bought Alliant Unique pistol powder from them yesterday). I could not believe my eyes and just couldn’t resist posting a comment and poking them over this faux pas: "Gotta love the NYT. They print their rabid gun control agenda and get you to pay for reading it. Sitting here reading it, I have seen several ads pop up for companies selling everything from assault weapons, to high capacity magazines, to ammunition and smokeless gun powder for loading your own ammo. Yes, indeed ladies and gentlemen your vaunted NYT ragsheet is a paid conduit for on-line sales of assault weapons, ammo, and accessories. Who knew? I guess we know where their real priorities lie, eh?” I got a response back from the NYT that said they will post my comment “when it gets approved”. Still waiting and either they did not approve it or decided to bury it so it would never be seen. Talk about the very definition of hypocritical media bubblegummers. LMAO.
