The decline and fall of the New York Times

Booman

It’s amazing how much we’ve learned over the last four years. We’ve learned about how a large segment of the Democratic Party is sympathetic to neo-conservatism and doesn’t care about our civil liberties or the balance of powers. We’ve learned that the mainstream press is more likely to aid and abet an obstruction of justice than they are to report what they know about White House crimes to the America people. We’ve learned just how much New Democrats and the Democratic Leadership Council hates the left-wing of the Democratic Party. We’ve learned that the Washington Post editorial board is little better than the Wall Street Journal editorial board or FOX News. Now, we learn that even the New York Times editorial board is more inclined to amplify the most discredited people in the country than they are to push new voices that have been proven prescient.

Sulzberger should resign.

    Why should he resign when you blog guys can just take up the slack? Seems that would be the worst thing he could do

    He should resign because he is destroying a once great company.

    Sorry, I hadn’t read the full piece. You’re getting overwrought because they’ve given op-ed space to Bill Kristol?

    Blogger’s envy of the traditional media.

    You guys have no principle. I thought you were indifferent to traditional media. It’s all a democratized free-for-all now.

    What if Kristol’s just a smart guy? And what if he’s way smarter than the average blogger?

    Kristol has been wrong about everything for years, but in particular about Iraq. It is an egregious case of failing upwards. Lefty bloggers may or may not be smart, but compared to Kristol we’re Albert Eistein. The NYT is still, in spite of Pinch’s consistent mismanagement, valuable editorial real estate. The space should have been reserved for someone with a clue.
