Can the New York Times be trusted? Oh, if only it were a simple query with a simple response.
As murky as the waters of the question posed above are, there is no doubt of the clarity of deceit posed by the NY Times’ editorial decisions, giving voice to, as Instapundit calls it, “out-and-out dishonesty” concerning the reasons we went to and continue to be at war in Iraq.
If the Bush administration is culpable in the active misleading of the American public concerning the reasons for going to war in Iraq (I believe it is not), then certainly these detractors on the left are equally damnable for a continuing campaign of revisionist history.
There are lies, damned lies, and statistics. And then there is the New York Times editorial page. I wonder, when it comes down to it, which is furthest from the truth.
