What drivel. Just look at the way the NYT's *reporters* (not the editorial section) has censored their pages of anything to do with the Air America scandal.

NYT fluff pieces promoting Air America: 28
NYT pieces reporting the Air America scandal: 0

The New York Times is anti-American, anti-US military, anti NYC police, anti-Semitic, and pro-terrorist.

I never look at that rag anymore. They're history.

Like if the Dixie Chicks would apologize, I should buy their music? They are still the same chicks. No thanks.

Let the Times come clean on covering up the Holocaust.

"Personally I think all "big media" people should do an internship in small towns in flyover country"

Socialist small town newspaper editors have ways of getting around this too. They live in liberal safe havens several counties away. Even if the peasants become outraged enough, they can be assigned to another paper in the news group that generally owns them.

Even the movie reviews in the Times bash Bush and the war in Iraq! I'm sticking to the WSJ for the morning commute and the New York Post for the ride home.

By the way, if the Times has changed, why haven't we seen a single article regarding the Boys and Girls Club loaning taxpayer's money to Air America?

They don't need a break.
All they have to do is start reporting fairly and people will stop slamming them.

And ANOTHER thing.

There will certainly be times when Keller and his newsroom allies will wonder if it’s really worth the effort. A good word from those who have been on the outside critically looking in may be the difference between throwing in the towel and fighting the good fight another day.

Nobody talks a better game about principle than journalists. Look at the Times' own Judith Miller. If their commitment to fairness is so tepid that they need our encouragement to do the right thing, then the question is already answered.

Leopard never change their spots.

They would have to prove it by performance , after about 50 years, I might give them the benefit of doubt.

Well, they're not reporting on the Air America scandal, are they?

Keep their feet to the fire.

What's a matter, NY Slimes? Losing money? Crash and burn! Maybe there's some kind and old hearted socialists that will let you move in with them and let you shove crap out of the barn for the collective.

NO. I prefer for them to continue in the twitches of their death throes. Calling themselves a newspaper is an illusion of grandeur on their part.
This is a plastic effort on the part of Keller to save the paper and all the lefties' jobs. God willing, may the wa post follow suit.

He may want to change things, but it's not going very well. Someone over there should be terminated for the Roberts adoption thing. There should be new people hired if they want a different perspective, just attempting to change those who are already there is not enough and will never work.

Should Conservatives Give The New York Times a Break?

Should Reagan have given Gorby a breaK? Should Dubya give Osama a break? I literally believe that the NY Times is a less trustworthy pub than the National Enquirer.
