The NYT Thinks You're An Idiot. Are You?

Yesterday I posted the definition of a coup d'etat known commonly as a coup:
coup d'état noun \ˌkü-(ˌ)dā-ˈtä, ˈkü-(ˌ)dā-ˌ, -də-\ : a sudden attempt by a small group of people to take over the government usually through violence.
Ukraine had a democratically elected president and representatives in parliament. It had/has a constitution with specific rules on how and when elections are held. It has rules for removing a president or any other member of parliament. Ukraine had elections scheduled in 12 months. All those democratic means for removing the president were bypassed by a crowd of protestors with grievances (valid or not) that were latched upon by the US to bypass the democratic processes of removing the president. The crowd brought arms in Maidan (and were bringing much more) in order to force the government to capitulate.

Now go back and read that coup d' etat definition.

What we saw was a definitive coup. No If, ands, buts or maybes.

So why is it that the NY Times put "coup" in quotes as if that was not in fact what happened?

Let's be clear, the NY Times (as well as much of the mainstream media) thinks that the American people (among others) are complete idiots. Just yesterday they posted a piece in which Angela Merkel of Germany said that Putin was detached from reality. Who exactly is detached from reality? When a clear coup is described as anything but a coup then those actually detached from reality are Obama, Kerry, Merkel and the rest of the people in the so called "west" who wish to manipulate an uniformed public into backing their own political, military and economic aims.

What we are witnessing today is a fully naked view of the real US media-state apparatus being used to shape public opinion. Whereas the press is supposed to play the role of truth teller. Where journalists investigate all sides of a story, what we see now in plain view is the US press as the arm of the state.

What good is a "free press" if the "free press" can't even call a definitive coup a coup?

The NY Times thinks you are a total idiot. Obama thinks you are a total idiot. John "swift boat" Kerry thinks you're an idiot. Are you one?
