NY Times Ad: ‘Truth. It’s More Important Now Than Ever.’

The New York Times aired a television ad during this year’s Academy Award Ceremony Sunday night. The ad focuses on the “truth.” The New York Times considers itself the paper of record on the issues of the day and carries the following line that appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page — “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”

To get to the truth demands examination. There are at least two sides to a story (Prov. 18:17). Does The New York Times present both sides, giving both sides of an issue accurate representation? Not often. Truth demands an objective moral standard, something that is no longer considered today by the mainstream media (unless you hold Progressive ‘values’).

Like Pontius Pilate, too many journalists cynically ask, “What is truth?” Today, truth is what’s true for the individual person. What’s true for me may not be true for you, and that’s OK, except when one person’s truth claim steps on the t…
