Legacy or bust

b at Moon of Alabama asks why it took three months for the NYT to report what was obvious from the get go, that Georgia invaded South Ossetia, shelled the major city, and killed a bunch of civilians and 'peacekeepers'.

I wonder if this has anything to do with it:
The Bush administration wants talks with Russia soon on proposals to limit strategic nuclear warheads and address Moscow's concerns about a U.S. missile shield in Europe, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.
Keller and at least some of his merry band of reporters have worked with the administration like a tag team since day one. After demonizing Russia for the past three months, and totally distorting the historical record, it seems that the Bushies have some new priorities. Can it be because the lame duck no longer needs to worry about the neo-con gang? That it may be time to put at least a few plus signs beside an administration stuck with minuses on every front? Whatever, the cue has been given and it's time to make nice with the Ruskies, so the paper of record leaps to the task.
