Piling on the NY Times

A strange comment in a WaPo piece on Bedbugs

“Even the overkill-averse New York Times has partaken, spraying the city with no fewer than a dozen bedbug stories in the past five years. "Bedbugs are back," reads a line from a 2005 Times article, "and spreading through New York City like a swarm of locusts on a lush field of wheat."

Overkill-averse?

This is the same NY Times that published FORTY stories on Augusta National’s men-only membership in less than 5 months back in 2002. As Victor Hanson recently observed over at NRO:

“…the signature trademark of the Times now is to take a particular ideological position, and then advance its advocacy by creating "news" on the front page—each subsequent day nuancing and tweaking the theme until the reader is exhausted, sighs "OK, we agree, enough already" and the desired result is achieved.”

The NY Times has become Exhibit A for overkill journalism.

I really like the fresh perceptive you did on the issue. Really was not expecting that when I started off studying. Your concepts were easy to understand that I wondered why I never looked at it before. Glad to know that there's an individual out there that definitely understands what he's discussing. Great job
