Their employees need to be driven from the entire media industry too.

It is not enough for the NYT to close its doors, the employees must never again be given even the TINIEST journalist job.

"Seriously though, you are right you can not save or redeme the NYT. It has to be eliminated and shut down PERMANENTLY."

Nah, I prefer to see them twist in the wind. Their campaign of disinformation helps keep the Left lame & lazy. They are one of the reasons liberals haven't had a new idea in the last decade, while conservative philosophy has been through the crucible and come out leaner & meaner.

“about portraying religious conservatives in an interesting and three-dimensional way.”

I'll believe it when they use three dimensions other than stupid, violent, and bigoted.

Really, I'd settle for "an accurate way."

How about instead we burn it to the ground and plow the ground it rested on with salt? I don't want a reformed NYT. I want an unread bankrupt fish wrapper for a half dozen dying widows on the upper west side.

Except that we've heard this old saw from left-wing media many times before just as we hear from the Democrat Party how it must "appeal" to people of faith and people more conservative than they are. And after about 15 minutes of hand-wringing and breast-beating, they go right back to calling us single-chromosome Bible-thumping yahoos with only two functioning neurons.

I particularly love the "inclusive" outreach the local paper does on Sundays where the local religion editor makes sure to write about something offensive to most Christians, whether it be about gay ministers, wacko left churches or people who think this whole Christ thing is just "too extreme". Then when local Christians react negatively, the paper fumes about "Bible-thumping fundies" and goes back to their staple Christian-bashing.

Give the Times a break? Um, no. Not until they show that they are serious about changing themselves and not just bitching about not being understood and accepted by the very people they routinely and reflexively insult.

The Old Gray Whore needs to make one simple change, and then I will no longer will have a problem with them.

They should put on the front page a new motto "Fighting For One World Government Under Socialism".

Then they can keep lying, distorting, shading, slandering, and spiking all they want in the text of their articles--and everyone will be reminded of their agenda.

The liberals can perfectly see a "wall of separation" in the First Amendment where it doesn't exist but they refuse to see a "wall of separation" between news reporting and editorialization that ought to exist.

I think we should give them a break, like 5 minutes and then,

The short answer to the question posed is: NO!

The logic for this response is given by this condescending quote from the article:

our news coverage needs to embrace unorthodox views and contrarian opinions

The only legitimate response to this quote is: F**CK YOU!

As far as the New York Slimes is concerned, patriotism, belief in God and a desire for the sanctity of marriage are "unorthodox views and contrarian opinions."
