New York Times Editor Blames Readers
For Dustup Over John McCain Article

by Kenneth R. Bazinet - February 23rd 2008 - Daily News

"I was surprised by how lopsided the opinion was against our decision, with readers who described themselves as independents and Democrats joining Republicans in defending Mr. McCain from what they saw as a cheap shot," Keller added.

The problem, Keller went on, is that readers didn't get it.

"Frankly, I was a little surprised by how few readers saw what was, to us, the larger point of the story."

There it is. The New York Times has decided that it is not that they ran a hit piece on John McCain. No. The problem is that all of their readers were just too stupid to understand the subtle point they really made.
