Genocide vs Fish Wrap
Pompous ass Bill Keller of the NY Times equates preventing the demise of the Old Gray Lady Hag to saving Darfur.

Saving the New York Times now ranks with saving Darfur as a high-minded cause.

The mind reels…

Google and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum today launched the “Crisis in Darfur” Google Earth initiative which offers users a handy guide to the systematic destruction of the Darfur region of Sudan as a result of an ongoing conflict between local rebel groups and pro-government militias.

Since 2003, an estimated 200,000 have lost their lives in Darfur, with more than two million displaced. Many atrocities have been attributed to the "Janjaweed" militia, which allegedly has specifically targetted non-Muslim communities. The Sudanese government has resisted international pressure to rein in its forces, repeatedly playing down claims of genocide.

The Crisis in Darfur project offers stark evidence of the true scale of the carnage, including the location of more than 1,600 destroyed and partially destroyed villages, plus audio and pictorial evidence.
