Embarrassing and envious screed by former Times executive editor

For those who still may wonder how the New York Times has ended up being the Titanic of the publishing industry, this delusionary diatribe by former executive editor, Howell Raines, may serve to explain it all too well.

What is evident throughout his rant is that Raines is dying of envy and full of resentment of the publishing and broadcasting success of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes. Truly, the angry, dripping envy is so palpable as to be embarrassing.

Honestly, for those of us who have wondered how such a revered publishing institution could flush down the tubes so quickly, here's our answer. With this kind of liberal zealot in charge, disaster was a foregone conclusion.

And Pinchè and crowd have the bald-faced chutzpah to say they're not biased?

Ed Lasky adds:

And how about this Times "journalism" and its front-page story that all but portrayed John McCain as having had an affair? Fine piece of journalism there...
There are many other examples of the "journalism" as practiced by the New York Times including Rains' protege Jayson Blair who, like Rains in this piece, just made stuff up and passed it off as news.
