NY Times Ombudsman Admits to Paper’s Bias:

Fox News’ Brit Hume reported the following last night in his Political Grapevine:

Ombudsman on Own Paper

Speaking of the New York Times, its ombudsman, public editor Daniel Okrent, is insisting his paper is unabashedly liberal, saying, “If you think the Times plays it down the middle on any of [the hot-button issues], you’ve been reading the paper with your eyes closed. I don’t think it’s intentional when the Times does this. But negligence doesn’t have to be intentional.”

Okrent specifically points to the Times’ coverage of gay marriage, which he says ?¢â??¬ ¦quot; “approaches cheerleading … [and fails] to provide the three-dimensional perspective balanced journalism requires.”
