New York Times, you're no Washington Post

And the media wonders why their glory days are behind them. Check out this description of Sharyl Attkisson's current bestseller Stonewalled:

Nope, no agenda here. Move along, nothing to see.

Because who in their right mind would complain about being harassed and intimidated by the White House while they're just trying to do their job? Only a right wing nutjob, amirite? I'm just surprised they didn't use "whines" instead of "complains". I mean, if you're going to be a jerk about it, might as well go all out.

So childishly petty, New York Times. You used to be better than that.

On the other hand, they have no problem being completely serious about a relationship book by a celebrity who has been married and divorced three times:

So Jennifer Lopez describes, but investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson complains. Got it.

Obviously, the days of anyone in the mainstream media wanting to emulate Woodward and Bernstein are over.
