This is a growing seedling article. You can help Issuepedia by watering it.


Many US conservatives, especially those tending to the extreme (e.g. DiPippo and Horowitz), seem to have a grudge against the NYT, possibly because of its "traitorous" 2006 publication of photos and addresses of the vacation homes of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld; Rocco DiPippo retaliated by publishing similar information about the NYT's editor Arthur Sulzburger [1] and photographer Linda Spillers, who (with Rumsfeld's permission) took the photo of Rumsfeld's vacation home. The argument is apparently: (1) we are at war (the War on Terror); (2) providing such information in public is therefore providing aid and comfort to the enemy, (3) which is treason, (4) which is a crime punishable by death.

(wasn't the article in question sort of a better-homes-and-gardens piece? in which case it sounds like they were more looking for an excuse to attack the NYT than they were genuinely outraged. --Woozle 08:50, 27 March 2008 (EDT))
