According to the New York Times, quote approval has become the norm throughout Washington.... Basically if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the [Democratic] federal government then it is safe to say that some gatekeeper has reviewed and approved it.
What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves. People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from the mainstream media. Perhaps that is why FOX news garners the incredible high ratings it has in recent years.
Glenn Greenwald on Salon.com, in one article compared Liberal Journalists to inept stenographers
Establishment journalists [are] stenographers, .. most of them do little more than mindlessly write down and uncritically repeat what government officials say. But stenography is a noble and important profession: they are the court-licensed officers who, with astonishing speed and accuracy, transcribe the statements of all witnesses, lawyers and judges in judicial proceedings. If establishment journalists were to replicate actual stenography, it would be an improvement on most of the work they produce.
It is beyond dispute that President Obama and his aides have an extreme, even unprecedented obsession with concealing embarrassing information, controlling the flow of information, and punishing anyone who stands in the way.

Pandering to Radical Islam
The New York Times has also become an asset to Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Islamic fanatics in America. They have frequently and blatantly supported jihadist endeavors against against free speech in the United States. Activities undertaken by Islamists and the useful idiots who sympathize with them. So called "civil rights" groups.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism recently purchased a full-page advocacy ad in the NY Times. It advocated the need for the media and governmental authorities to sanely address the reality that the majority of acts of terrorist actions are rooted in radical Islam , they also pointed out that Islamic organization attempt to deflect attention .
The Ad ran one day, the Islamic fanatics launched a blitz of calls and complaints to have it pulled and the NY Times complied - The Times demanded that the IPT change the language to be more Islamic friendly, or it would pull the advertisement . They wouldn't and the Times pulled the AD
As per Investigative Project on Terrorism spokesman - The NYT ordered us to insert the word radical before the term Islamist groups, so that it read, Stop the radical Islamist groups from undermining American security, liberty and free speech..... An Islamist is not simply an individual who privately observes Islam as his faith. An Islamist is an individual who blurs the ideological lines between personal religion and the nation state , a boundary upheld as one of America's founding principles and sustained in the First Amendment , to foster a governmental system that relies upon the supremacy of Islam.... Islamic,...is an adjective that describes an idea or element derived from ..Islam. Islamists promote an Islamic agenda, though some do it more subtly than others.
