MICKEY KAUS is all over the Bustamante / MEChA story:

Is the L.A. Times a) “objectively’ reporting on a campaign controversy or b) bending over backwards to exonerate Latino activists, either out of political correctness, or because it’s terrified of alienating a large group of potential readers, or as part of its near-monolithic Bustamante-boosting coverage? You make the call! … Would the Times show similar tolerance for, say, an anti-bilingual site that reprinted a document containing the slogan, “For Anglos, Everything. For non-Anglos, Nothing”?”

But that’s different, because, well, it just is, okay?
