The New York Times has always been at War with Oceania.

The neutral-sounding-but-corrosive "1619 Project" was expressly presented by the New York Times as a revisionist reset of the American founding, shifting it from 1776 to 1619, the year the first African slave arrived in what would eventually become America.

Now that that that position has become unpleasantly controversial, the Times and the Duran-- er, Pulitzer Prize-winning designer of the Project had a choice: they could admit that it was so designed, or they could lie about it.

Predictably, they chose to do the Orwellian thing and erased that damning language, pretending they never said it.

Despite the fact it's impossible to do that in the internet age.

We need a new term for "beneath contempt."
