Someone thinks that reality has come to the New York Times . . .

But has it? Read this at Just One Minute and see if you agree. My neighbor, a smart guy-business professor, is convinced that the problem with media bias is derived mostly from marketing, and not necessarily from an overriding political philosophy. Liberal bias, therefore, manifests itself in papers serving broad and more liberal markets with their stories.

I tend to disagree, mainly because the NYT just keeps on keepin' on, spewing venom at conservatives and celebrating the UN, Bill Clinton, and Paul Krugman (who has lost his damn mind). Senator Durbin got no real press time at the NYT, while Karl Rove gets front-page billing for a speech heard by virtually no one. Why is that?
