The Paper of Making Up the Record

A rough week or so for the New York Times. Unsurprising to anyone, Maureen Dowd does what she does and quotes someone out of context. At least there’s no ellipsis. If you’re a columnist and your name has been turned into a verb, it’s not good.

The Times also takes good news about body armor in Iraq and turns it into bad news. Someone else decided to contact the Times’ source and their source was a bit miffed.

Krugman tells a whopper about the 2000 election. Commissar is right, Krugman must believe. Patterico has more.

And the Times totally blows it by mischaracterizing why a scientist on a panel preparing a report for the Bush administration resigned.

Update: Krugman continues to fib. Surely, Media Matters will be all over this.

    Kevin and I sometimes say “you’ve been Uncled.” Is that bad? 🙂

    Heh. Dunno, need a context. I guess that means I’ve linked to something in the extra crispy realm.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
