My wife and I had been discussing cancelling the NY Times for some time. Though it has some very good reporting the bias had really started to wear on us. Finally the other day,my wife had it. She heard on the Liddy Show how the Times unfairly blamed the administration for missing explosives in Iraq. Sen Kerry immediately seized upon this "news" to launch new attacks against the President's running of the war. It was as if the Times had become the chief propagandist for the Kerry campaign.
My wife cancelled by calling and complaining about the bias. It appears that the Times is oblivious to its rank partisanship.
We plan to start getting the Washington Post. It's just as liberal but slightly less partisan. In its editorial on the subject, the Post makes clear that it feels that the administration went to war with two few troops, but in the end seems to buy the administration's version. Alas it seems to deflect blame from the Times simply to place it on Mohamed ElBaradei. But ElBaradei's bad behavior doesn't excuse the Times. They should have been a lot harder on the Times. Despite that the Post clearly has more credibility. Plus my boys say it has a better sports section!
