subject: 	Inaccuracy and bias in New York Times reporting concerning Venezuela

 To Clark Hoyt,
 Public Editor,
 NYT,


Dear Mr. Hoyt,

As i am sure many people must have brought to your attention already,
Stephen Lendman has published an article pointing out what he claims
is a pattern of inaccuracy and bias in NY Times reporter Simon
Romero's reporting about Venezuela.

In <http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=9268>, Lendman writes:

"As usual, The New York Times' Simon Romero led the assault.

"He headlined: "Chavez Suffers Military and Policy Setbacks" with the
front end of his lead referring to Colombia's (unsubstantiated) claim
about capturing a Venezuelan national guard officer carrying assault
rifles "believed to be intended for leftist guerrillas."

"Once again Romero fumbles with the facts as he always does on
Venezuela. He now states: "President Hugo Chavez....said Saturday he
would 'withdraw' a decree overhauling intelligence policies that he
had made earlier that week." He called it "a rare act of
self-criticism" while hammering on the "capture" issue and filling
paragraphs with inaccuracies."

Chavez seems to be revising, not "withdrawing", Venezuela's new
intelligence law.

Sincerely,
