    For anyone who thinks that the New York Times is anything like FoxNews (but a liberal version), check out this story that they broke, hacking a Democrat candidate for the US Senate into little pieces:

    Blumenthal?s Words Differ From His History - NYTimes.com

    Now, this guy totally deserves what he gets for lying about his military experience like that, and the Times was only telling it like it is, but FoxNews would have never broken a story like this about a Republican. Not in a million years.

    That's the difference. The Wall Street Journal is the same way, outside of their editorial pages, or at least they were. Who knows what they may become now that Murdoch's in control.

    Here's an excerpt:

    They really nail him to the wall.

    Maybe the reason Fox wouldn't break a story about a member of the GOP lying about serving in Viet Nam is because there aren't any GOP candidates who have made such lies.

    Oh right. Because GOP politicians NEVER lie, right?

    None of them have turned out to be gay or anything, for instance. Or turned out to have accepted millions of dollars in bribes, or anything.

    Noooo, that'd never happen!

    The big difference between Fox and the NYT is that the former is profitable, the latter is not (and had to hock its building to make payroll).

    You have never read an edition of the New York Times in your entire life, so how would you even know?

    I, on the other hand, often read the Times and the Journal, and watch as much FoxNews as I can stomach on a regular basis before I am forced to shut it off.

    Fox has been quite active in reporting on GOP scandals such as the ones involving Foley and Sanford. Good for the NYT for exposing Blumenthal's lies. It's about time they performed some real journalism.
