FReepers are amazed by the LA Times getting things right so often that it should cease to be a cause of amazement.
Truth be told, because of their penchant, both on the opinion page and in news reporting, for getting things right on a fairly regular basis, the LA Times has become my favorite old media outlet. (Yes, I know they are reliably in the tank for the CA demonRAT party, but they seem to have some of the last journalists who actually believe in objectivity working for them, and an editorial page editor that thinks something more than a token ‘conservative’ columnist is needed for balance.)
After the LAT published the “doctored” picture of a U.S. soldier in Iraq standing over someone with his weapon pointed at the person as opposed to the weapon being pointed away from the person as it actually was and numerous anti-military and antiwar articles over the years; I canceled my subscription.
One token piece SEVEN YEARS AFTER THE FACT doesn't change my mind about the Times...in fact, because it took the Times SEVEN YEARS to print such an article only reinforces my opinion of the LAT!
