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.
Sunday, January 15, 2006 For the record: If you haven't already read this, do it now. It's an account of how the New York Times didn't feel as outraged about the Clinton administration's wide-ranging Echelon spying program as they do about the Bush administration's comparatively limited surveillance program.
I've often said of the Times editorial page that it is partisan, not principled. This just shows that the partisanship has leapt the walls that traditionally kept news and opinion divided.
It leapt that boundary quite some time back. Why is this any surprise?
