Criminal Presidency

NYT sat on story before election.

The New York Times first debated publishing a story about secret eavesdropping on Americans as early as last fall, before the 2004 presidential election.

Oh that liberal agenda driven New York Times.

Time for Pinch and Keller resign in shame, too.

And, of course, we have the return of Danny Boy:

"You are damned if you do and damned if you don't," said Okrent, who often wrote critical reviews of the Times before leaving in May to write a book. "For the right, this information never should have come out. And for the left, it never could have come out early enough."

So, the decision to publish a story should be dependent, in part, on the volume of partisan criticism you expect to receive. I guess that's how they approach the news now.
