God Damn The New York Times On Barack Obama And Jeremiah Wright

barack-obama.jpgTHE New York Times is All The News That’s Fit To Print. So it says.

Byron York looks at the NYT and tries to spot any mention of Barack Obama’s spirutal guide Jeremiah Wright’s conspiracy issues

Speaking of “God damn America,” if you read only the New York Times — if that were your only source of news — you might not even know that Wright had uttered those words. A Nexis search shows that the only place Rev. Wright’s “God damn America” proclamation has been reported in the Times was in Bill Kristol’s column yesterday. That column was noticed mostly for a factual error — Kristol repeated a claim from an inaccurate NewsMax report — but as serious as that was, it seems that Times readers should at least thank Bill for telling them what the news pages would not.

A conspiracy? Anyone told Mr Wright?
