Press takes orders from King George
Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger and executive editor Bill Keller met with President Bush on December 6 to discuss the story about National Security Agency eavesdropping. Bush pleaded with the two men not to run the story. Bush's main concern was the story, which depicts him as law-breaker. The President was not at all concerned the disclosures would compromise national security. The story shows that Bush clearly authorized the N.S.A. to engage in illegal spying on Americans everywhere. The story proves Bush violated the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The NY Times were rabid pro-war cheerleaders, they allowed Judith Miller all kinds of leeway - and now we learn that they sat on a story that might well have changed the outcome of the last presidential election - not to mention a story that we the peeps had a right to - well screw them. They have about as much credibility left as Rush Limbaugh.
