A new book exposing the disturbing connection between the establishment press and the imposition of same-sex marriage on America lays out the convincing case that the Old Media’s standard bearer, the New York Times, was influential in the groundbreaking Massachusetts judicial decision legalizing homosexual matrimony.
In “LIBEL by New York Times,” attorney Ed Pawlick and his wife, Sally, president of Massachusetts Citizens for Marriage, connect the dots between Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the newest member of the Sulzberger family to run the Times, and homosexual activists – in and out of his newsroom.
Sulzberger started working at the Times in 1984 and immediately began identifying and befriending the homosexual employees in the newsroom, the Pawlicks write. His father, Arthur O. Sulzberger Sr., reportedly had serious doubts about his son, and it wasn’t until 1997 that the junior Sulzberger got complete control of the conglomerate.
Many of those in the Times newsroom agree with what the Pawlicks have written, as evidenced by a startling admission in July 2004 by the paper’s ombudsman that the “news” in the Times about homosexuality amounts to “cheerleading.” What the ombudsman didn’t report, however, was that homosexuals comprise 75 percent of the editors who are deciding daily what stories to put on the front page, according to a lecture by its national political correspondent, Richard Berke.
The Pawlicks say they have personal knowledge of the homosexual bent of the Times. After Sally’s group obtained 130,000 signatures in 2001 for an amendment to forbid Massachusetts courts from imposing either “gay marriage” or “civil unions,” the Times used its enormous political power to pressure the state Legislature into not voting on the measure, even though a vote was required by the state Constitution – and thus the measure died.
Says Ed Pawlick: “The Times is run like a family shoe store by the dysfunctional Sulzberger family, with uncles and cousins discussing how to solve the problems of the world. Its news department is now personally managed by its latest chairman, who is using his power to further his personal agenda of imposing ‘gay marriage’ nationwide, saying that all previous Sulzbergers were ‘homophobes,’ including his father, who now has Parkinson’s disease.”
