The NY Times Isn't "Tuned In?" Surely You Jest.

Via Memeorandum:

The New York Times has decided that they may have tuned in a bit late to the ACORN story. Reading Hoyt's piece I couldn't help wondering if the Times had actually had a moment of clarity and self awareness or if they had been bombarded by angry readers and decided to engage in a little CYA.

The giggle line came in the form of this:

Despite what the critics think, Abramson said the problem was not liberal bias.

Noooooo, of course not. They just have "...a particular problem with conservatives...". But never fear, the Times has assigned an editor to monitor it's "tuned-in-ness" but the person will a) remain anonymous and b) can't be contacted. Huh?

I have after an intense study the anonymous editor will pronounce that the Times is doing a bang up job.

Business as usual.
