"Even with the explosive proliferation of new media and channels of communication during this IT age, the New York Times remains arguably the world’s single most important news enterprise. It is therefore fitting that an Internet-based watchdog tackle the Times as its sole object, and that we who care about this world help the NYT eXaminer survive to carry out this mission. The NYTimes eXaminer deserves our support."
~ Edward S. Herman
"The New York Times, the paper of record for the empire, is a kind of intellectual botulism for journalism, which, even so, all who want to get what is available about what is happening, tend to read - or to read reprints from. That's a problem - and NYTX is the corrective. NYTX dissects what appears in the NYT, providing a useful analysis and alternative for bias, distortion, and other nefarious propagandistic journalistic crimes. Read the NYT because you must. Read NYTX because it is excellent, exemplary, and what you want."
~ Michael Albert
"If the New York Times is the newspaper of record, the NYT eXaminer is the critic of record. By all means read the Times for its news and opinions. But check out the Examiner if you want the biases and errors of the Times exposed and subjected to critical analysis. A truly valuable service to anyone who wants to know what's really going on."
~ Stephen Shalom
"I've been actively supporting NYTX since the very beginning for a simple reason: a paper as influential as the Times deserves a dedicated watchdog. Chris Spannos has been steadfast not just in keeping an eye on the Times through his own analysis and that of his growing team of writers -- he's also made NYTX a clearinghouse for every decent piece of NYT critique that appears."

"It is no under-
statement to say that we face dire challenges that affect the quality of life. From the environment to the economy to human rights issues to international relations and more. Our most important tool in meeting these challenges is understanding them, but with a highly concentrated media system, which the New York Times is a part of, reflecting powerful economic and political interests we need to be able to translate the gobbledygook and provide readers with a clearer picture of the world. The NYT eXaminer is such a tool. Please show your support in any way you can."
~ Michael M'Gehee
"The New York Times eXaminer is such a welcome and necessary addition to a growing worldwide campaign for honest journalism. The eXaminer has shown the Times to be so often a corporate parody of itself which its pomposity no longer obscures. More please!"
