Anyone who thought that the New York Times had a hope in hell of ever being factual, fair and political unbiased; your hopes have just been nuked. 

In column footnoted that “The public editor is the readers’ representative.”… the Public Editor himself one DANIEL OKRENT, invokes the apologies issued from the Times last week, and wails that there’s still a problem; the Times allowed itself to be used as a right-wing tool:

“The aggressive journalism that I long for, and that the paper owes both its readers and its own self-respect, would reveal not just the tactics of those who promoted the W.M.D. stories, but how The Times itself was used to further their cunning campaign.”

Apparently the person supposedly representiung us at the Times is a complete idiot, else a tool of the left-wing Times itself. When even the so-called reader-rep… The guy whose job it is, supposedly to call out the Times when it gets out of line, … when such a person assumes a leftist tilt is the way things ought to be, it’s clear that the NYT is a totally lost cause…. They will never employ anyone rooted in reality.

It therefore needs to be discounted by us all as a legit news source.
