New York Times Admits It’s Basically Obama’s Campaign Newsletter

The only surprise here is that the NYT’s own ombudsman admits that the paper is Obama’s best friend:

Many critics view The Times as constitutionally unable to address the election in an unbiased fashion. Like a lot of America, it basked a bit in the warm glow of Mr. Obama’s election in 2008. The company published a book about the country’s first African-American president, “Obama: The Historic Journey.” The Times also published a lengthy portrait of him in its Times Topics section on NYTimes.com, yet there’s nothing of the kind about George W. Bush or his father. [emphasis added]

One thought on “New York Times Admits It’s Basically Obama’s Campaign Newsletter”

  1. Doesn’t the three words immediately before the emphasized text (“Many critics view”) indicate that it was not Brisbane (e.g., the public editor) talking about the slanted view of “The Times”? I read the rest of the piece and found no support that this was the view of the author. Indeed, the rest of the piece was a defense of The Times policies, indicating several stories published by the paper that were supposedly critical of the actions of Obama. Context is everything.
