This Is Exactly Why I Stopped Buying "News"papers

This is what happens when you combine politics with journalism : you, long time NY Times reporter and op-ed,  Frank Rich , publish a picture, weave the 9/11 story that you want around it and then – well just read for yourself.  Slate magazine brought it up with astounding results (via the exceptional U.S.S Neverdock and Hot Air).
This is the original Slate column, and this is one of the people photographed speaking up and telling what was actually going on. I’m sure this happens all the time but it is very rare that a newspaper gets exposed in such a dramatic manner. I do not know where the New York Times got it’s reputation, but today it is no better than Pravda used to be.
