"Ms. Stanley's point was that Mr. Rivera was show-boating - that he was being pushy, if not literally pushing - and I think an impartial viewer of the footage will see it that way," Keller insisted."
The interesting thing about this story is that no matter who you believe, somebody at the NY Times is lying to the public.
If NY Times editor Byron Calame is right, then Times reporter Alessandra Stanley fabricated the story. If Times editor Bill Keller is right, then Times editor Byron Calame is lying. They're losing their credibility and relevence faster than you can say "Al Gore".

If NY Times editor [sic] Byron Calame is right, then Times reporter Alessandra Stanley fabricated the story. If Times editor Bill Keller is right, then Times editor Byron Calame is lying.
I don't see it that way. I see Cellar's response to Calamity as, "So, she made it up, so what?"
I wonder if anybody else sees it my way, or am I barking mad?

(Cause of "editor" confusion: Calame ="Ombudsman" but the Times invented neologism "public editor.")
