I’m reading the NYTimes, masquerading as the International Herald Tribune, and on the front page there is an article about the Egyptian elections, which Timesmen David Kirkpatrick and Mayy el Sheik call “the first competitive presidential election in the history of the Arab world.”

NOT.  Iraq did that.  But somehow, memories don’t go that far back.  At least in the NY Times

I suppose every journalism school of note now has a required course in “rewriting history.”
