Journalism at the NYT…one-sided reporting. Surprise!

H/T to Soren Dayton at RedState who has a post about Sarah Palin’s critics in Alaska.  They all happen to be people she has beaten in her political career.

Today’s New York Times has a story about Sarah Palin’s critics in Alaska. These are the “facts” that they use in the story: * They quote the guy she beat for Mayor of Wasilia. They quote a Democratic city council member who says that Palin did something but doesn’t corroborate. The person who could have corroborated refused to comment. They note a guy who she fired and who sued and lost his lawsuit over wrongful termination.

In other words, they interview people she beat. Funny. They don’t like her. Politics ain’t beanbag. I suspect that Barack Obama knows that too.

The only person they quote who isn’t directly hostile because they lost a political battle to her is her Deputy Mayor who just seems to punt.

The national fishwrap of record (a.k.a. New York Times) article today seems to be a little one-sided on Gov. Sarah Palin.  As Soren notes in her closing…

Give me a break. This isn’t news. This isn’t honest. This is just the New York Times in full attack mode. And the “newspaper of record” should be ashamed of itself for publishing it. And William Yardley should be ashamed for writing it.
