It seems as if tungsten and chup were talking about two different persons with the same name. 

Tungsten, why can you not simply acknowledge that he was a dictator as sick and twisted and psychotic as the rest of these "wanna-be folk heroes turned into Mini Stalins/Hitlers/Pol Poths/Maos"?

Someone credible, so, not the NYT's....

This is frightening. Getting news from an outlet like Counterpunch that will use the iffiest of sources (Russian government, for one) and has mixed factual reporting at best, while believing the New York motherfuckin' Times is not credible.

I suppose it's better than getting your news solely from a conspiracy theory forum, but still.

Now put in 1/100th that effort in checking validity of counterpunch and you'll have it.

I read on this non conspiracy forum called twitter recently that one NYT cover had steganography included it.

That is whole bunch more effort into trying to justify not trusting the established credible mainstream news sources.

Now, how about taking a look at the validity of Counterpunch?

Might be a more productive use of time to try to discredit outlets like Infowars & Breitbart than The New York Times, NPR, etc, eh?

If putting up posts wishing a brutal dictator everlasting peace seems like a good idea, it may be time to question the source of these ideas.
