One of the reasons we have always been skeptical of what passes for "news"
the pages of The New York Times is that for the past decade they have been
uncritical cheerleaders for Chicago's version of dictatorial corporate
The article that appeared on page one of yesterday's editions (we get the
National edition here) was almost pure agitprop and would have made a great
subject for dissection as propaganda were I teaching journalism at this
"Experts say..." over and over, then only one side of the "experts" was just
most obvious sleight of hand.
All of us have to be a lot less naive about our expectations of the press
doing the right thing. What can we expect from an entity that adds Bill
Kristol to its editorial group ? Would you not turn away from CNN's coverage of
anything when you see William Bennett's mug ? In the guise of balance,
sometimes even smart people do the silliest thing.
