The New York Times Editorial Board Should Be Executed For Treason

By LilDebbie in Politics
Sun Dec 05, 2010 at 06:14:20 PM EST
Tags: New York Times, cablegate, treason, espionage (all tags)

Andrew Rosenthal, Carla Robbins, David Shipley, Robert Semple, Serge Schmemann, Philip Boffey, Lincoln Caplan, Francis Clines, Lawrence Downes, David Firestone, Carol Giacomo, Verlyn Klinkenborg, Eduardo Porter, Eleanor Randolph, Dorothy Samuels, Brent Staples, David Unger, Teresa Tritch, Bill Keller, and unknown others did knowingly publish classified diplomatic cables unlawfully obtained from foreign agents in flagrant violation of the Espionage Act.

That some of these cables concern the nuclear weapons programs of rogue states satisfies the statutory requirement for seeking the death penalty as laid out in 18 U.S.C. 794.


President Obama, as chief executive of the United States government, your duty is clear.

1) Only two words into the statue you've already fucked up:

"with intent or reason to believe that it is to be
used to the injury"

Journalist's intent is not to cause injury, but to do their job and report the truth.

You lose.

2) The journalists are not the ones transmitting the info. Only the original leaker and wikileaks are guilty of that. The rest of us simply saying that Wikileaks is there -- at this address -- are simply referring to information that is already in the public. You can't transmit a secret that's already been made public.

Why is Wikileaks guilty but not the NYT? (3.00 / 8) (#21)
by LilDebbie on Sun Dec 05, 2010 at 07:28:45 PM EST

They're most certainly transmitting the information. In case you weren't aware, the New York Times is a newspaper who prints materials like this out on to cheap and convenient newsprint and distributes copies to several million regular subscribers. They're not just a transmitter, they're a broadcast transmitter.

Wikileaks, on the other hand, only managed to propagate the information to five agents. I'd say the Times is the far bigger threat. As for intent to injure, of course the Times wants to embarrass the Administration. Obama has consistently failed to live up to liberals' expectations. Spreading this leak is revenge for his working with Republicans to extend the Bush era tax cuts.

by N0574 on Mon Dec 06, 2010 at 12:36:18 PM EST

The administration is considering prosecuting Assange. But what is the difference between Assange and the New York Times? Why prosecute one but not the other? They both had unauthorized access to classified information and they both communicated the information to others to the detriment of U.S. national security. The New York Times will invoke the First Amendment, but the Supreme Court ruled 91 years ago that the press is not free to disclose classified information, despite current practice. There does not seem to be a convincing reason in principle not to prosecute the Times for espionage and treason.

It originally described him as being "taken into custody" (and there was a different photo, of him being escorted by police), strongly implying an actual arrest.

that. Assange is of Australian nationality, so to call him a traitor is quite incorrect, as you have to be a citizen of the country in question in order to betray it. So cut that shit out, post haste.

US Code - Sec 794 says nothing about making public (none / 1) (#41)
by Paul Sheer2 on Thu Dec 16, 2010 at 02:31:59 PM EST

The meaning of 794 is about transmitting military secrets one person to another to the injury of the US. To ensure the law is not too narrow the text obviously includes various alternative broader disclosures. Further broadening this definition to include "the press disclosing to the public" creates ample bases for legal interpretation. Such interpretation is probably beyond the skill of lay persons. Further, is this really to the injury of the US? This is also open to interpretation. Also, like any law, there are minimum and maximum penalties depending on the degree of the offense. A sentance of death would be draconian and unfair in this case.

For instance it does not compare to John-the-snitch posing as an naval officer and selling stolen passwords to communist korea in exchange for 40 lbs of pure coke.

It's best never to suggest the death penalty unless you yourself are willing to administer the injection. For John-the-snitch you may have no problem, but these other people???

Publishing right wing nutjob conservative trash
tea party crap dont help. It's sad that the people can't think.It's like most republicans cant think for themselves and it's scary.They keep electing the worst of the worst, go for ideas that are self destructive, do not care about people in need of help, do not care about the effects of their policies and nice for them ideas that only benifit the richest of the rich , and yet those idiots keep electing the very people that seek to destroy them.

Every country has a secret service , and EVERYONE DOES IT. Remove your head from the sand and look up for a half a second.The real world is out there and republicans are at the front of the destruction of the past 60 years efforts by the people to have a bit of the American dream : a well paying job , a wife and children they can raise and make great citizens of.

Destroying the syndicates DOES NOTHING FOR THE PEOPLE ONLY AGAIN FAVOR THE RICHEST OF THE RICH.
