Bias, up to and including misrepresentation

By

Patterico eviscerates Kate Zernicke of the New York Times, who must respond or risk becoming the embodiment of liberal perfidy in the antique media, an international laughingstock. She went to comic lengths to hew to the Kerry line in coverage of his gaffe, and buried his "actual words" in the eighteenth paragraph. Worst sin of all, she lied about what he said, 

"flatly misrepresenting to readers the content of the remarks."

Patterico has her cold. Ms. Zernicke has some explaining to do.
