I can only assume Rosenthal offered up “We have not chosen anyone” as a bit of comic relief. While they may not have “chosen anyone” yet, even the most biased and liberal supporter of the Times will admit that whoever the paper does endorse for 2016 will only come from the Democratic Party.

Like Obama, whom he often defends, Rosenthal was given much in life. At a very early age, Obama was inserted into the protective and forgiving bubble of political correctness, while Rosenthal was inserted into the bubble of nepotism, wealth, and privilege. Good for them both.

While, as one who grew up in poverty and was often homeless as child, I may not understand these gifts of political correctness or family wealth and title, I do believe those who attain positions of power in part because of those gifts should at least be honest with themselves as to how they got there and try to exercise such gifted power in a fair manner.

The Times was once the best newspaper in the country. Now it comes across as a high school gossip-rag with nerds trying to settle scores with the school jocks or bullies. Pity.
