A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Monday, November 22, 2004 Where the outrage is:Salon's Eric Boehlert takes the occasion of the announcement of New York Times columnist William Safire's retirement to take him to task for decades of mistakes and inaccuracies.
I'm not going to defend Safire, he's certainly made errors and not corrected them, but Boehlert's outrage is conspicuously constrained to Safire. The problem Boehlert describes is hardly limited to Safire -- it is systemic at the Times.
Boehlert might garner more support for his crusade if he'd acknowledge that errors and an unwillingness to correct them isn't limited to conservatives.
