Outgoing New York Times public editor Arthur S. Brisbane writes Saturday that progressivism “virtually bleeds through the fabric” of the paper:
When The Times covers a national presidential campaign, I have found that the lead editors and reporters are disciplined about enforcing fairness and balance, and usually succeed in doing so. Across the paper’s many departments, though, so many share a kind of political and cultural progressivism — for lack of a better term — that this worldview virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times.
NYT’s editor Jill Abramson disputes these claims, saying that the new York Times simply reflects “its urban and cosmopolitan base.”
Really? The NY Post publishes in the very same urban and cosmopolitan area and it outsells you in the boroughs.
