Update: Via Josh Trevino, it seems the politicization of the Benghazi attacks has discouraged the worlds most influential newspaper from devoting much coverage to Issas hearings. File this away mentally for when President Romneys foreign policy is instantly politicized next year:
Baquet and Abramsons remarks come in response to criticism from the papers own public editor, Margaret Sullivan, who objected to the editors decision not run its story about the hearings on todays front page. Both the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal gave yesterdays hearings prominent play on their front pages, above the fold. The Times placed its story on page A3.
Baquet, who oversees the papers afternoon editorial meeting, told Sullivan he didnt think there was anything significantly new in it.
Its three weeks before the election and its a politicized thing, but if they had made significant news, we would have put it on the front, he said.
Abramson, who described the papers Libya coverage as excellent and very muscular, also suggested the hearings were politicized, telling Sullivan that she had told editors to weigh the news value against the reality that Congressional hearings are not all about fact-finding.

These people are insane! I simply do not know what else to say.
Need anymore proof that liberals absolutely DESPISE America and everything it stands for..of course liberals agree with Cutter, that is why the Obama Administration did NOTHING to protect them in Libya, let them fend for themselves, because their hatred for America is so overwhelming they had NO problem having these men be in danger. This was NO gaffe by Cutter, this is how the Administration feels
Stephanie Cutter is Obozo’s administrations Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf (aka “Baghdad Bob”) but without his sincerity!.
Nice score board.
I wonder if the paper will change when Carlos Slim forecloses on it ?
Disgusting. Our ambassador and several brave ex-seals were killed, and all Obama and hillary can do is cover, lie, and apologize for it.
And Romney isn’t supposed to question that sort of incomprehensible treason and failure to do a President’s most fundamental job: defend our citizens and especially our ambassadors and other officials from our enemies and stand up for our country?
Very nice timestax.
They had live feeds in real time and knew when it happened what happened. They are now busted and axing their mediabots to give them cover til the election.
Pray for America
Is it ok to post that elsewhere?
