The New York Times Is Not Like A Box Of Chocolates - You Always Know What You'll Get

Forrest Gump author Winston Groom responds to the NYT's latest dose of leftism, a review of his book 1942: The Year That Tried Men’s Souls:

Groom wrote the book in light of the Sept. 11 attacks – offering Americans today the perspective of a time after we had been struck at Pearl Harbor – and bounced back.

But in the upcoming May 29 issue of the New York Times Book Review, already made available to the publishing industry, critic Patricia Cohen actually derides the book for its parallels to the U.S. response to the 9/11 attacks.

She accuses Groom, a noted military historian, of conducting "a portable pep rally designed to fire up the home team for the next epic showdown. The 'Great Democracy' versus the evil Axis – or more recently, the axis of evil."

There's more. Read the whole thing.
