Media circle wagons around NYT, again

September 27th, 2005 10:09 AM

Editor and Publisher drags out Jimmy Carter's arms control nabob to try to keep the big media crew on message: forget correcting flasehoods, forget being fair to the barbarians at Fox News, just focus on Rove, Plame, WMD (or lack thereof), and John Bolton.

All credibility was shot when he didn't ask that the Times both correct their falsehoods and investigate Miller.

Of course, this didn't work the first time he tried, or the second, the third, the fourth, or when Arianna Huffington dragged him out, so there is little likelyhood that it will work this time.
