Things To Act

Hey, It's a Slanted NYT Story That Doesn't Attack Bush!

In addition to the reporter's direct jab ("Mr. Kerry apparently meant John XXIII, as there is no Pius XXIII."), the article contains this gem:

"...and said that he expected to win some states in the South, although he declined to name them."

Is this "International Man of Mystery" Round II? "Oh, I've talked to various Southern governors who are really pulling for me to win this, but it wouldn't be proper for me to name names..."

And of course, I'm paranoid enough to think that the reporter's inclusion of Kerry's ""Who are they?" he demanded of his questioner. "Name them" a mere three paragraphs later is no accident. Still, who'd have thought that equal-opportunity bias would rear its ugly head at the NYT?
