    They've had two, both ended up calling out the Times for bias and nearly outright lying. So the solution? Get rid of the position:

    LOL. It's not like The Times were known for their objective reporting or keeping national security matters secret since Calame took the position. If Calame added 'credibility' to The Times, I didn't see it. They sell some of their newspapers on the strengths of the Mo Dowd and Thomas Friedman op-eds so giving them more free reign might sell a bit more. Besides blog sites and message boards make the Talk to the Newsroom obsolete.

    I gotta a call a while back from them asking me to subscibe by mail. I could not stop laughing after I told them I would not support their dying liberal rag, and them calling me was prove positive of their impending doom.:razz:
