Dear Roger and Richard:
Your lame attempt to justify the actions of the NYTimes is falling very flat. If everyone already knew it, why was it on the front page? Why did administration officials and others ask the NYTimes not to print it? If everyone already knew everything, how is that news, and why would the NYTimes consider it important enough to warrant front page above the fold space?
All of us here in flyover country think that you have just proven us right, in our distrust and dislike of your arrogant, unelected, irresponsible support of our enemies. You may have a limited audience among those who share your "America is evil, Bush is worse" viewpoint, but those people don't pay your bills, do they? It's the folks who patronize your advertisers who pay your bills.
And I won't buy ANYTHING from anyone who advertises in your paper, again. Ever.
You people think you are smarter than the average American, and that you can tell us what our viewpoint should be. You're about to get an attitude adjustment.
FReeper Judith Anne
I wish someone who has access to the NYT would list the advertisers so we could stop purchasing their products.
