Is it news when bloggers humiliate the NY Times?
Here they go again. Another member of the pajamahadeen has embarrassed and humiliated the New York Times. Another blogger is catching them red handed literally parroting Democrat talking points. What a great job by Patterico's Pontifications.
Professor Bainbridge describes it this way,
MSM Caught with Pants Down
Patterico catches the NYT parroting a Democrat party talking point memo in an editorial today. He then fisks the heck out of the editorial on the merits. The Times really ought to be ashamed of itself.
IT'S NOT PLAGIARISM when you repeat stuff from a press release without checking it -- but it's not journalism, either. It's not even very good punditry.
