Times Hit Piece Dying On Media Vine

At Newsbusters, Clay Waters writes:

The fallout continues from yesterday’s New York Times hit piece on John McCain. The paper itself doesn’t seem eager to put up a fight as network news broadcasts, liberal bloggers, journalism professors, and the general public are questioning the Times’s journalistic standards.

Roger Simon questions the timing–of the Times endorsing McCain, knowing that this story was slowly simmering on their back burner. But Orrin Judd half-jokingly writes, “Were one conspiracy minded, it would be easy to imagine that Maverick planted the story himself knowing that the Beltway Right would side with him against the Times.”
