Arthur Brisbane, the Times’ Public Editor who recently said that the Times couldn’t be expected to be a “Truth Vigilante”, has written his last column and it’s full of the kind of reasoning we’ve come to expect from that moron:
When The Times covers a national presidential campaign, I have found that the lead editors and reporters are disciplined about enforcing fairness and balance, and usually succeed in doing so. Across the paper’s many departments, though, so many share a kind of political and cultural progressivism — for lack of a better term — that this worldview virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times.
[…] A just-released Pew Research Center survey found that The Times’s “believability rating” had dropped drastically among Republicans compared with Democrats, and was an almost-perfect mirror opposite of Fox News’s rating. Can that be good?
Since it’s a well-established fact that Fox News viewers are well-informed about many things, let’s be sure to take their word on what news source we should believe.
