New York Times’ Reporting on Libya.
March 1, 2011 Leave a comment
The New York Times is really getting to me with their referring to the Libyan protestors as rebels. Calling them rebels indicates somehow that their actions are wrong, that their grievances are illegitimate. The Libyans have gotten further than their counterparts in Egypt, but have faced much more violence from their government. It’s a shame that the New York Times, with their vocabularly, appears to oppose the people.
