The New York Times And Its Readers

Normally, I tend to avoid the mainstream media (CNN/New York Times, etc.). However last night I was thinking to myself that maybe and I should take a look at the latest New York Times headlines, so I can see what the other side is saying.

Needless to say, it was not a pleasant experience.

Reading the letters from readers was even worse.

Regarding the Dan Rather/forged memos scandal, for one reader, the fact that neither President Bush nor the White House challenged "the essential accuracy" of what CBS reported even after Dan Rather apologized, is evidence enough for him that President Bush failed to do his duty, no if ands or buts.

Another woman wrote in that she admired Dan Rather for not cowering before the Republican spin machine and sticking to his guns about the documents until he knew they could not be authenticated. (Uh hello!!! What was Mr. Blather doing in the first place passing off fake documents as real and attacking critics if he wasn't pimping for the Democrats to begin with?)

Another reader wrote in the Dan Rather's "false claims based on documents that turned out to be fraudulent" was nothing compared to President Bush's lies about Iraq's WMD or lack thereof.

Yet another man lamented about how many Iraqis would die in their homes "so that we Americans will feel more secure in our homes?"

The way these people think is truly mind-boggling.
