ALL THE NEWS WE WANT TO PRINT (PROVIDED IT DOESN'T EMBARRASS ANY OF OUR FRIENDS) , PART 2

Think The New York Times is on an even keel now?

Read this article by Dick Morris and find out just how well the Clinton adminstration was treated by the Times. A sample:

As Clinton's chief political adviser, I knew the request had something to do with the White House. But I was surprised to be asked by Lelyveld and a Times reporter to help them get an exclusive interview with the president. "We've tried for months and come up empty," the editor pleaded. "Can you help get it done?"

I spoke of Clinton's sensitivity to criticism from the Times and how he had bristled particularly at Raines, then running the editorial page. A worried frown clouded the editor's formerly sunny face. "You know," he assured me sotto voce, "we don't think that the public cares about what happened back in Arkansas."

Wow.
