Walter Duranty, New York Times Stalinist…A Name That Should Live in Infamy

“You would think that the New York Times, which was full of admiration for Stalin in his day, would be hesitant about using the word “Stalinist” as an epithet. Indeed, there has been a movement in recent years to force the Times to surrender the Pulitzer Prize awarded in 1932 to its Moscow correspondent, Walter Duranty, whose false stories from Moscow were deliberately designed to disguise Stalin’s mass killings and starvation in the Ukraine.

You would also think that Frank Rich would be careful about losing self-control on the subject of “Stalinism in full purge mode” when Republicans complain about Republican candidates who stray from core party principles. For the most famous case of a “purge” on the basis of party ideology was carried out not by any Republican, but by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Democrat of New York, in 1938.”

I don’t remember where I read the above two paragraphs or why I had saved the Draft of them except to remember the name of the American traitor, Walter Duranty, the news correspondent for the New York Times from Moscow during the 1930s. 

Duranty won his Pulitzer Prize for his Stalinist work, pumped up as a hero reporting the TRUTH from the USSR about the glories of Soviet life and its commitments to world PEACE. 

What was kept from the Times-reading public, was that this Big Business of the news industry had made a deal with Comrade Josef Stalin, that Mr. Duranty could write his sweet articles only if whatever he wrote was sugar and spice about Stalinist nice.  

Duranty obliged……becoming a propagandist for the Communist Party the the Soviet Union.

The New York Times obliged…..becoming a propagandist newspaper for the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.   In 1939  the Soviet Union invaded Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Esthonia, and Bessarabia.

Soviet Marxism was on the march.  Millions of Ukrainians and  countless Russians were slaughtered under the watch of the New York Times of the 1930s…. This big business out of New York City has never apologized for this  deceit and its involvement  with these mass murders.

Todays Durantys at the Times  preach  the propaganda of Political Correctness, the little red book of American Liberals.   Charles Krauthammer wrote the following only two weeks ago illustrating  their contempt for  democracy and the voice of the people……..

“Liberal expressions of disdain for the intelligence and emotional maturity of the electorate have been, post-Massachusetts, remarkably unguarded. New York Times columnist Charles Blow chided Obama for not understanding the necessity of speaking “in the plain words of plain folks,” because the people are “suspicious of complexity.” Counseled Blow: “The next time he gives a speech, someone should tap him on the ankle and say, ‘Mr. President, we’re down here.’”

Marxism suffered a severe setback November 9, 1989 with the beginning ot the end  of the Berlin Wall.   Yet, today, Marxism is making a recovery in the Union of Socialist America with its authoritarian Leftists in Washington jamming Obamacare down the throats of the American people. 

Know president Obama’s biography…..Know Marxism’s history……Be certain to view the 2008 German film, “The Lives of Others”  to understand the nature of a society where atheism and socialism are betrothed!

The bigger the government; the smaller the citizen!

The following is a Conservapedia writing on Walter Duranty:

Duranty is known for being a Stalinist sympathizer, Soviet propagandist, and blatant liar. Duranty’s reports stated that the Soviets were ruling in the best interest of the people. He referred to Stalin as “the greatest living statesman”. He claimed that his time spent in the USSR represented “a heroic chapter in the life of humanity”[1]. Stalin himself told Duranty “You have done a good job in your reporting of the USSR”[2] Even though Duranty was criticized initially, it was not until 1980 that the Times publicly acknowledged his failure[3]. Many other Ukrainian and human rights organizations have protested his obvious bias. The American ex-Communist Jay Lovestone has suggested that Duranty worked for the OGPU. Journalist Joseph Alsop claimed that “Duranty was a great KGB agent and lying like a trooper.” Lev Navrozov, a Russian emigre who wrote a book titled “What The New York Times Knows About the World” said that Duranty’s articles and books should be retitled as “A Drunken Sailor’s Yarns About a Foreign Country” or “A Crazy Housewife’s Chatter About Something She Knows Nothing About.”[4]

The following is a writing from Wikipedia regarding Walter Duranty’s tenure in the USSR:

In 1932, reports of famine in Ukraine started appearing from journalists such as Gareth Jones of The Times and Malcolm Muggeridge of The Guardian. Both men defied travel restrictions and secretly went to view conditions in Ukraine. In the spring of 1933, Jones left the Soviet Union and reported the famine under his own name in the Manchester Guardian. Around the same time, six British citizens were arrested on charges of industrial espionage. On March 31, 1933, Walter Duranty denounced the famine stories and Gareth Jones in the New York Times. In the piece, he described the situation under the title “Russians Hungry, But Not Starving” as follows: “In the middle of the diplomatic duel between Great Britain and the Soviet Union over the accused British engineers, there appears from a British source a big scare story in the American press about famine in the Soviet Union, with ‘thousands already dead and millions menaced by death from starvation.”

Muggeridge, who had secretly been in Ukraine for The Guardian, later called Duranty “the greatest liar I have met in journalism.” But while Gareth Jones had published his articles under his own name, the Muggeridge articles were published in the Guardian without Muggeridge’s name on them. Neither Muggeridge nor any other member of the press establishment covering the Soviet Union came to the public defense of Gareth Jones. And while Jones wrote letters supporting the unattributed articles in the Guardian, Muggeridge did not write similar articles to the New York Times supporting Jones.

In his New York Times articles (including one published on March 31, 1933), Duranty repeatedly denied the existence of a Ukrainian famine in 1932–33. In an August 24, 1933 article in NYT, he claimed “any report of a famine is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda”, but admitted privately to William Strang (in the British Embassy in Moscow on September 26, 1933) that “it is quite possible that as many as ten million people may have died directly or indirectly from lack of food in the Soviet Union during the past year.”[6]

The duel in the press over the famine stories did not damage esteem for Duranty — whose reporting The Nation had described as “the most enlightened, dispassionate dispatches from a great nation in the making which appeared in any newspaper in the world.” Following sensitive negotiations which resulted in the establishment of relations between the U.S. and USSR in November 1933, a dinner was given for Soviet Foreign Minister Maxim Litvinov in New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Each of the attendees’ names was read in turn, politely applauded by the guests, until Duranty’s. Whereupon, Alexander Woollcott wrote, “the one really prolonged pandemonium was evoked … Indeed, one quite got the impression that America, in a spasm of discernment, was recognizing both Russia and Walter Duranty.”[7]
