They sometimes, despite themselves, report how the world works but when they do this it contradicts how the majority of reporters on the newspaper pretend how the world works.
So how do they reconcile these two contradictory positions. They don't. They don't even try. And so it is today (Mon). On the front page the newspaper announces in a headline statement of the obvious that "Volatile Swings For Price Of Oil Hobble Industry." A sub-headline states "Fears That Sharp Shifts May Delay Revival of Global Economy."
In the article The New York Times warns that businesses are suffering because of volatile swings which has seen "Oil prices more than double since the beginning of the year." But isn't this the same New York Times that supports Cap & Trade, a tax on Carbon that is going to increase energy prices across the US.So in one part of the New York Times increases in oil pries will prolong the recession but in another part of the same newspaper increasing the price of energy will "create green jobs."
And The New York Times wonders why it is losing readers and money.
