Journalistic Malpractice

Today, the NYT reports on how their missing weapons story released yesterday (now known to be bogus) has become an issue in the campaign. Gee, isn’t that amazing. Imagine that! The main stream press throws out a story that is at least 18 months old, passes it off as “breaking” news geared to expose Bush as being incompetent, hand delivers a pulpit for John Kerry to stand on and preach from, and SHAZAAM, it’s become an “issue” in the campaign.

By the way, the NYT has not yet reported on their error. Do I expect them to? No way. If they do issue a correction, it’ll be buried on page A-21 in the November 3rd edition.
