No one can be surprised by the way the Times slants their perspective in news coverage of The Tea Party and that of the Wisconsin protesters. It's a given. But its nice to see the details all bared out for all to see.

No surprise, and fortunately it won’t matter either.

Aside from slobbering journalists and liberal politicians, the Times is rapidly becoming obsolete.

Just think - in 15 years we’ve come to the point where a cheesy flashing beacon on the Drudgereport - a site run by a guy who formerly operated a gift shop - has as much influence on the national discussion as a front page story in the New York Times.

Balanced coverage would have reminded the reader that we live in a representative Republic and that the citizens of Wisconsin spoke loudly at the ballot box last November. But, then again, this is the NYT ...

The Democrats in the Wisconsin legislature who fled the State have abgrogated their duties and responsibilities as public servants. They should have remained in Madison and tried to cut the best deal they could under the circumstances.

You’re quoting “The New York Times?”

Didn’t that used to be a newspaper?

Sorry. I don’t care what the NYT says.
