I’ve been watching the high comedy at the NY Times since Mistermix and Tim brought it up, and it really is kind of amusing watching our nation’s elite journalists have a very public Admiral Stockdale moment– “Who am I and what am I doing here?” In reality, that is unfair to Stockdale, who was a hero who gave everything for his country. At any rate, I just clicked through the post Mistermix recently linked to, and they seem to have a really odd defense. Jill Abramson has written in to Brisbane, thrown him a couple links to their blogs, and said “see- we correct shit on our blogs.”
The response to this nonsense is “Why do you have a higher standard for integrity on the Times blogs than you do on the front page?”
Judy Miller, also too.
