    New York Times editor Jill Abramson rebuts Arthur Brisbane bias charge - POLITICO.com

    In his final column for the Times, Brisbane wrote that his fellow staffers "share a kind of political and cultural progressivism" that "virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times." Brisbane even argued that Times reporters approached some liberal issues, like gay marriage and the Occupy movement, "more like causes than news subjects."

    Yup__ what we knew. The higher-ups at NYT will still go with deny, deny, deny until they're the next News Weak.

    Anyone with a brain already knew the old gray lady is a liberal rag.

    The interesting thing is that he spent 14 paragraphs of pretty light hearted stuff before bothering to lower the hammer. It's as if he's weary of betraying the liberal shithead code.
