Advertising that fits the advertiser 

So, the New York Times is incongruously advertising for home delivery subscriptions on Fox tonight, which is in theory a waste of money if you believe, as is received wisdom in the Grey Lady's core audience, that Fox is a teeming hive of scum and wingnuttery. The best line in the ad comes from some unctuous tool who declares that "The Times has the best journalists in the world. There is no debating it."

No debating it. Captures the paper's general attitude rather well, I'd say.

What is it with these people?

"The debate is over..."
"There is no debating it..."

Call me crazy, but the attitude seems more general in a particular segment of the population commonly known as Lefties.

Today, I kid you not, I click on my NYTimes link at work. And their lead story (the one with the picture) is about a guy from Asia who took the name John Doe (jan doh in asia) and "hasn't regretted it since".

For real.

All the news that is fit to print.

I would have fallen over laughing, but I didn't have time.

And---the "science" is settled. Debate not needed. Al Gore. Hey, NYT, when will one of your best journalists pen something? Down here in Texas all we get to read is from your whoredog writers.
