Welcome to the 2007 Top Ten Lowlights of The New York Times. As usual, the year brought a cornucopia of biased behavior by the nation's paper of record, from sliming innocent Duke lacrosse players to defending illegal immigration to yet another liberal rant from a high-level Times executive (this year it was Executive Editor Bill Keller who did the honors). Times Watch has whittled down the absolute worst from another liberally slanted year from the New York Times. For the full report, visit Times Watch. Here are the headlines for a taste:10. Bill Keller Unleashed in London -- "War Going Very Badly in Iraq"9. The Haditha "Massacre"8. Doubting the Fort Dix Six Terror Plot7. France's Fearsome Nicolas Sarkozy 6. Gee, Why Is Dick Cheney So Secretive?5. Reporter Chastised for Saying "Surge" Worth a Shot...4. Blaming the Victims in the Duke "Rape" Hoax3. Loving the (Illegal) Alien2.
