Betraying Its Own Best Interests - New York Times

Betraying Its Own Best Interests - New York Times: "Under the provocative headline “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” the ad, purchased by the liberal activist group, charged that the highly decorated Petraeus was “constantly at war with the facts” in giving upbeat assessments of progress and refusing to acknowledge that Iraq is “mired in an unwinnable religious civil war.”

The ad infuriated conservatives, dismayed many Democrats and ignited charges that the liberal Times aided its friends at with a steep discount in the price paid to publish its message, which might amount to an illegal contribution to a political action committee."
