The New York Times Continues Its Descent

Darrell Issa is a hard-hitting, wealthy, self-made conservative congressman from California. The Marxist/socialist/ collectivist left targets him because he doesn't like the sweeping growth in federal power in Washington especially in the last two years. This week, The New York Times slimed Issa in a seriously weak hit piece by Eric Lichtblau. Issa has corrected the record in a point-by-point response. Powerline's John Hinderaker has more on the story here.

OTR may like some of Issa's political positions, but not all of them, and he doesn't care for the in-your-face methods either. What he does like is the traditional journalistic pursuit of the truth. If readers still think The New York Times seeks truth, they need to devote some careful study to both the Issa article and the response.
