    Lol.

    Hey, but there's no bias in the press, and if they don't report it, it hasn't happened.

    Likewise, if they do report it...regardless of where they get the information or even if it's just made up (as about half of NYT stories are) it's GOTTA be da troof!

    It'd be funny if it wasn't so indicative of what that paper has become. Think they are more careful about their news sources? :lol:
