IS THE NEW YORK TIMES LIBERAL?….Tom Spencer, responding to this piece by Jeanne d’Arc, complains about the habit of the New York Times “to consciously avoid stories or refuse to make obvious connections that would embarrass the current administration.”

Eh? But I thought the Times was a liberal newspaper? Or maybe Eric Alterman is right, and it’s not really. But Bernard Goldberg thinks it is. But…but….splutter….boink.

Sorry, the cognitive dissonance got to be too much. I think I’ll spend the next two hours figuring out what to have for lunch.
