The New York Times, like The Phila Inquirer, Boston Globe, Washington Post , are all guilty of trying to shape the news rather than report it. They have become the Ultimate Obamabots, completely unbelieveable, out of touch, laughable. The tragedy is that none of this had ot happen. Each one took its readership for granted; assumed they were pliable fools, and too dumb to recognize TRUTH in spite of their SPIN. In each case, it is Suicide. Their demise did not have to be.
