De-Emphasizing The Indefensible

Is any further proof needed that she is lying?


NYT looking particularly ridiculous today
Thomas Lifson

It's been many a year since I actually paid money for a dead tree version of the NYT (once upon a time I subscribed - for many years). So I haven't confirmed the following, but it is believable.

This morning, on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Joe Scarborough pointed out that the story of Nancy Pelosi accusing the CIA of lying to her only rated a story on page A20, while every other paper in the country had it on page 1. Moreover, Joe also correctly noted that Abu Ghraib rated many, many front page stories for months.

All across America, people are laughing at the transparent news agenda of the Times. When a newspaper is having trouble surviving, adopting the profile of a laughingstock is not a good move.

Update: Bill Carroll advises us that the LA Times runs a close second: the story is on page A15. Another failing paper in another huge city.
