Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Thursday slammed the New York Times after the paper’s editorial board called for a clemency deal for former National Security Agency contracter Edward Snowden.
“Edward Snowden, he’s a traitor or a defector or both, and the New York Times is an accomplice,” King said on Fox News. “They go out of their way to be apologists for terrorists. And they go after those in law enforcement and the military who are trying to win this war.”
King called on Americans to stop reading the liberal “rag.”
“They’re a disgrace. Their editors are a disgrace. And I wish they cared more about America than they did about the rights of terrorist appeasers,” he said about the Times. “They have this narrow, liberal, left-wing ideological view. They did it to the NYPD. They’re trying to do it to the NSA. It’s time for American to stand up and reject the New York Times and expose them for the rag that they are.”
