 NY Times Misleads, Cites No On-Record Officials in Story on Trump Iran Decision
by Carrie Sheffield on April 9, 2019

The New York Times’ coverage of the Trump administration declaring the Iran Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization offered a misleading analysis of the designation’s impact, positing that the move was highly negative and would backfire or have limited impact and was simply motivated by Israel’s domestic politics.

The Times quoted Wendy Sherman, a former top State Department official under both the Clinton and Obama administrations, who said, “there would be no practical payoff given the risks to Americans and the fact the group was already under other sanctions.”

The Times quoted another former Obama administration official, who offered his opinion without any backup results or evidence.
Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
