WE Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter to AG Sulzberger, president of The New York Times Company and publisher of New York Times, following reports that New York Times are withholding documents, including a “Top Secret” speech that Xi Jinping gave in 2014, direct links between Xi and Communist Party official about the ongoing Uighur Muslim genocide in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region.
At the end of 2019, New York Times received 403 pages of leaked documents, including a speech outlining what Mr. Xi plans to do in Xinjiang. NS New York Times was selectively reported in Xinjiang on November 16, 2019, and suspiciously failed to publish key documents with important information about the role of Mr. Xi and other top officials.
Many of these documents have now gone to the Uyghur Courts, giving the public the opportunity to learn information that New York Times has been withheld.
Rubio’s letter asks for an answer from Sulzberger as to why New York Times participate in selective reporting in 2019 and continue to withhold these materials from the public.
The full text of the letter is:
Dear Mr. Sulzberger:
I am writing to warn you of what will surely be another historical stain on the New York Times records if found to be true. As you know, your article has a long history of covering up atrocities. In 1933, New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Walter Duranty dismissed widespread famine in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, including Ukraine. We may never know why the New York Times and its men in Moscow felt the need to cover up Josef Stalin’s atrocities in order to silence and wipe out millions of peasants, but it seems history is repeating itself.
For unknown reasons, the New York Times appears to have deliberately withheld documents that directly linked top Chinese Communist Party officials, including General Secretary Xi Jinping, to the killing. Uighur Muslim strain is taking place in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region. In the now published “Top Secret” transcript – documents the New York Times alleges have been in possession of since at least 2019 – Mr. Xi explicitly authorized changes to the local anti-terrorism law. methods, rounding up and convicting Uyghurs, using forced sterilization, and using slave labor in Xinjiang.
More than 100 years ago, the New York Times promised, “to deliver news impartially, without fear or favor, regardless of party, sect, or interest involved.” The article failed that test by covering up Mr. Xi’s direct involvement in the genocide.
I have no illusions that you will ask for your papers to be investigated and held accountable for those who brought water to Xi, but America and the Uighurs suffer unjustly in prisons and labor camps. Slavery in Xinjiang deserves answers. Please submit, in writing, responses to the following:
- Who decided not to release the entire document someone risked their life to obtain and gave to the New York Times in a desperate attempt to save the lives of people in Xinjiang?
- Why did the New York Times choose to misrepresent Xi’s policy goals as simply counterterrorism and blame atrocities on middle-level Communist Party members when you have the document? Xi’s true genocide clear?
- Has the New York Times had any discussions or communications with the Communist Party of China and the Chinese Government regarding any of the 403 pages it received? If so, has the Times made any agreements or concessions to withhold the release of any documents, including Mr. Xi’s speech on what he wants to do in Xinjiang?
- Has anyone at the New York Times reevaluated that decision after the Trump and Biden administrations determined that atrocities committed in Xinjiang constituted crimes against humanity and genocide?
- Will the New York Times commit to publishing the remaining 86 pages of the document?
For a newspaper that has spent four years claiming that the duly elected leader of the free world is a Russian agent intent on destroying America, defending a brutal dictator who ordered a single genocide simply amazing. To highlight the absurdity, the New York Times has written countless articles promoting the conspiracy theory that the Russian government has scorned the “kompromat” of President Trump – and did so based on more or less rumors. and a document that has now been widely declassified.
On the contrary, it appears that the New York Times has covered up evidence that Mr. Xi has punished the extermination of an entire people. No apology can undo your newspaper’s complicity in the ongoing genocide, but at the very least, you should stop censoring your reporters and let the full details go. disclosed freely, without fear or favor.
