Both sides are pissed at the New York Times today.
From the right, Captain Ed is angry at a report that appeared on Drudge which claims the Times is “looking into the adoption records of the children of Supreme Court Nominee John G. Roberts”:
[Captain Ed:] The Times should confine their interest to points germane to Roberts’ ability to perform as a Supreme Court jurist, not go on fishing trips into the most personal parts of his family life.
If [NYT executive editor] Bill Keller can’t tell the difference between the New York Times and the National Enquirer, it’s no wonder that his readers can’t, either.
From the left, Digby is pissed about rumors that the Plame-outing investigation might be stymied by Judith Miller’s refusal to talk:
I can’t tell you how much it’s going to chap my hide to see Karl Rove and his buddies skate because Judith Miller is covering for them. After watching them willfully and credulously print every smear that scumbags like David Bossie could dream up about Bill Clinton, the NY Times makes a fetish of protecting the Bush administration. Our paper of record has seriously lost its way. It is now little more than a Republican plaything; its reputation is being used as a vehicle to mislead the public; its ethics and standards are being manipulated to cover up corruption. Something is very rotten at the Grey Lady.
Fishing expeditions into a conservative Supreme Court nominee’s family life, and a fetish of protecting the Bush administration. There’s got to be some sort of bias going on…
