Here's a howler

Howell Raines, former editor of the New York Times, is making a post-career career out of bashing Fox News, which is bashing most of the liberal media in the ratings, including the New York Times.
Here's the latest from Raines. In an op ed piece he says, "For the first time since the yellow journalism of a century ago, the United States has a major news organization devoted to the promotion of one political party."
This from the guy who ran Jayson Blair's fiction and crusaded against the Masters Tournament over some fictional "womens' rights" issue in a way that made even other liberals blush.
Raines is the print equivalent of disgraced TV talking head Dan Rather.
The Times, as everyone in America knows, has been the quasi-official mouthpiece of the Democrat Party and continues to be, even with Raines gone.
Liberals cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. They hate Fox because it presents both sides of issues, which responsible news organizations are supposed to do.
