“Fair and balanced” – NYT style

Hard to believe that the same news outlet that today published the news that Obama’s DNI confirmed with the administration last week that enhanced interrogation techniques “did produce significant information that helped the nation in its struggle with terrorists” is the same one that also published on the same day an article titled, “In Adopting Harsh Tactics, No Inquiry Into Their Past Use”, right?

Well, not if you know it was the NYT who did so. You see, because they want you to know that even though the interrogation techniques yielded information critical to stop terrorist attacks, that some of the tactics were considered “brutal” when used by despotic regimes, so, you know, that must make us no better than – well, you know who.

You can always trust that anytime the NYT prints anything remotely positive about the Bush admnistration, they’ll always – always – counter it with something that “balances” things out for their majority liberal readership.

Just sayin’.
