This kind of selective coverage really shows what the NYT considers their primary demographic, not to mention what they consider “news.”  As you can clearly see in their absolute and pathetic failure to push for regulation on Wall St., it’s not a “crime” to the NYT unless it threatens the complacent security of wealthy or upper-middle class white heterosexuals.  Wouldn’t be wonderful if “news” meant “things it’s important for you to know” rather than “things you should be anxious about”?
Also, in response to a recent ask question about why I spend so much time criticizing the New York Times.  The answer is that, in addition to being (supposedly) among the more “liberal” of the major dailies, many people consider it “America’s newspaper of record.”  Who watches the watchmen?
