The Times ain't a changin'

Congressman Foley's adventures in cyberspace certainly appear to have all the characteristics that should have the media's mouth watering. There's sex, there's gay sex, there's teen sex and there is a prominent Congressman involved in all three. There's the irony that Foley has deftly hoisted himself on his own petard by promoting and passing a law that he seems to have feloniously violated. There seems to have been a deliberate cover-up by the House leadership.
So how does the New York Times report it? Under the 'More News' section their headline is 'Along With Victories, G.O.P. Takes a Few Blows'. There is no mention in the article of the cover-up.
Let's face it, for the New York Times, being a Republican entitles you to a free pass. They are continuing to use their position as the 'paper of record' to help the Republicans remain in control of Congress, and in two years they will do their part once again by smearing the Democratic candidate for president, and boosting the Republican candidate.

Please anonymous, give details, why bless the stars?
They helped Bush lead the US into a disasterous war, they covered up domestic spying to protect the reelection of Bush, and they continue to show fealty to a administration whose only accomplishment is the big lie.
OK, Krugman.
