Fidel Castro and Augusto Pinochet were both mentioned by the New York Times this week…

Fidel Castropino3pinochet2pinochet

The NYT story on Castro informs that he was a "President" who "led" Cuba. That's about it.

The NYT story on Pinochet uses "DICTATOR" both in the title and in the very first paragraph, along with "TORTURED," "KILLED" and "DISAPPEARED," referring to his alleged victims.

Back in Dec. 2006 something similar happened:

From the New York Times 12/11/06: “Augusto Pinochet, Dictator Who Ruled by Terror in Chile, Dies at 91 Gen. Augusto Pinochet Ugarte, the brutal dictator who repressed and reshaped Chile for nearly two decades and became a notorious symbol of human rights abuse and corruption, died yesterday at the Military Hospital of Santiago.

From the Washington Post 12/10/06: “Gen. Augusto Pinochet, 91, the former Chilean dictator whose government murdered and tortured thousands during his repressive 17-year rule, died yesterday.

These, by the way, consist of the very first sentences of these MSM stories on Pinochet.

More "incongruencies" here.
