New York Times columnist Joe Nocera has a scathing attack on Jon Corzine, whose financial firm just declared bankruptcy. "The idea that Corzine, who single-handedly destroyed MF Global Holdings, was in a position to command so much as a penny in severance is horrifying...."
What caught my eye was one word that never appeared in Nocera's
column. I'll give you a hint: it begins with (D). Also left out of
Nocera's piece, Jon Corzine this election has given the maximum to the
Democratic National Committee (and thus to Obama's reelection). But it's
not Nocera that's omitting these relevant facts -- it's nearly the
whole New York Times.
I found 10 articles on the Times website with the words "MF Global" since it announced bankruptcy yesterday. Some numbers:
- Only 5 of 10 NYT articles mentioning MF Global mentioned Corzine
- Only 1 of 5 NYT articles mentioning MF Global & Corzine used the word "Democrat"
- 0 of 5 NYT articles mentioning MF Global & Corzine mentioned that he's $30,800 donor to Obama's DNC
Republican Senator and Governor and maximum RNC donor ran a huge
financial firm into bankruptcy?
