Can't Elect A New Media

Nice work, Adam Nagourney and the New York Times:

On the Friday before Election Day, Mr. Cheney told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that the White House would push “full speed ahead” with its Iraq policy, no matter the outcome of the election. In the process, Mr. Cheney obscured a last minute flurry in which the president had attacked Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts for a remark about American troops in Iraq.

It's safe to say I'm not the world's biggest John Kerry fan. Still, I've always dreamed that someday the New York Times could write a story that mentions Kerry without regurgitating the most pernicious, disgusting right wing smears against him.

Maybe I need some new dreams.

(Thanks to Dean Baker for pointing this out.)

The NYT is as "stay the course" as Bushco. You'll always see them spewing the Repug line on Kerry, Clinton, Clinton, Dean etc. Once they pick up one of those memes they never let go.
