Judy Miller worked for you, Bill, not the National Enquirer

fish wrapper-1Bill Keller makes me want to throw up, and not just a little in my mouth, either. But then the odor of sanctimony does that for me:

Bill Keller, the executive editor [of The World's Greatest Newspaper (not)], said in an e-mail message that Mr. Edwards’s dark-horse status and the “added hold-your-nose quality about The Enquirer” contributed to the lack of interest by The Times and the mainstream media generally.

Last I checked, the National Enquirer didn't cheerlead us into a war based on false reporting from Judy "Kneepads" Miller.

But Bill Keller's fish wrapper did. Holding your nose yet, Bill?

And last I checked, the National Enquirer didn't fucking suppress the news of Bush's warrantless surveillance program until after Bush was safely elected.

But Bill Keller's fish wrapper did. Holding your nose yet, Bill?

Reach me that bucket, wouldja hon?

we would never see any Bush administration officials used as sources.

Keller and the Times have an especially big problem with the Edwards story -- after all, they were responsible for the "McCain's lobbyist mistress" story, so Keller can't very well take the "we didn't investigate it because its salacious gossip unrelated to real campaign issues" approach. All he can do is act like the Times is somehow better than the National Equirer, and hopes no one mentions how sleazy the Times has been under his leadership.

But I'm skewering Keller and the Times here, who richly deserve it.

I thought this was about both.

Not until they come clean about Whitewater will the NYT ever have credibility, all the subsequent lies flow from that.

I'm just tired of the Edwards saga, so I thought I'd rag on the Times. But apparently it's so obvious what the Times has become that there's no point even commenting. Sigh....

gets a "so what else is new?" reaction, the same as if you were ragging on the National Inquirer, the demise of the MSM as a reliable news source has become complete. Next stop for the Sunday Times: your local grocery store checkout rack.

I can't but help to feel, though, that if the NYT had ran this across their front page at the beginning of the whole thing we'd be damning them for peddling salacious sex scandals. Not that they don't deserve to lose, either way, but would I be wrong?

I fear its worse than that, BIO. People have bypassed the local grocery store checkout rack, altogether. Folks are now stopping by The Huffington Post for their primary and secondary "newz".

BTW, The Enquirer is as good as dead. TMZ is their Huffington Post.
