The problem isn't going to be cured by a memo.
Most of the people on the news/editorial staff were chosen BECAUSE of their Liberal biases. Asking a Liberal to be less liberal is like asking a pit bull to be less canine.
Fire em and start again or shaddup already!
"The NYT is liberal because the Sulzberger family which OWNS the NTY is. It will continue to be so, until the publisher "Pinch" Sulzberger changes his views.
When you are vey wealthy and having a failed business, you use it as a write off. If the NY Slimes just reported just the facts and left out the commentators opinions(they are not articles, they are left wing opinion pieces), then maybe the readership will go up and they will begin to make money.
Wow, what a concept. Telling the truth and gettig paid for it.
I remember that column, and the core argument (IIRC) - that the Court never should've removed abortion from state legislatures - was certainly an interesting and provocative one. But there is still a large constituency of social conservatives who are a big part of the American right and, to many NYT readers, are a bunch of 19th-century knuckle-draggers. To acknowledge the strength of their agenda would, I think, be too uncomfortable for NYT opinion manufacturers.
Let's also keep in mind that bias as often means what is NOT said as well as what is said.
