The NY Times reporting & editorials about the Indian protests can only be called wimpy-assed when the struggle against Indian fascism is so monumental & so integral to the struggle against Indian fascism & occupation in Kashmir. The NYT did some good reporting from Kashmir–past tense. They know exactly what’s at stake in India & Kashmir & it isn’t ‘bigotry’; it’s fascism. This weak-minded kind of reporting is a way of protecting US military & trade relations with India, of not alarming investors or jeopardizing the alliance Obama forged with India against China in the region.
