The main oddity of the Times downplaying Russian involvement in the election is that for 20 years at least, and increasingly by the mid oughts, the NY Times was involved in a virtual jihad against Russia. Several times a week the top of the online page would have a story saying in one way or another Putin is the devil. I am not saying Putin is Peter Pan but the over emphasis was stunning.

While half a million were being killed and millions were made refugees in Libya and Syria because Saudi funded jihadis from all over the Muslim world bent on establishing a medieval form of Islam were sent there the NY Times regaled us with endless stories of Olympic athlete doping. The scale was simply astoundingly wrong. Then, at the moment when the most relevant to America story about Russia since the fall of the USSR broke they went all mamby pampby about Russia and especially Putin. This is exceedingly odd.

My rough Grand Unified Theory of the NY TImes dating to the 30ís is that it seeks to normalize fascism because fascism is American as apple pie so we get stories of the regular guy in Toledo who happens to be a Nazi. He keeps his lawn mowed so WTF, no biggie. That this has continued over several generations demands a motive but good luck with that. That Putinís Russia has become more fascist didnít stop the Times jihad against it, until the last half of 2016. Throw in that central to the push back against the Mueller probe has been that it is an outgrowth of a phobia against Russia. A phobia engendered by 20 years of above the fold stories in the Ďeven the liberal NY Timesí conditioned liberals to hate Russia, with total success. Then when it came time to swoop in for the kill?

Over the last several years, one thing has bothered me about The New York Times, something not immediately obvious in these related pieces of what may be the most important work the paper published since the early 2000s and the Iraq War. By ďimportantĒ I donít mean effective, nor do I mean constructive.

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord. -- Psalm 27:14
