Another Bullet in the Old Gray Lady’s Ass

TIMES’ GITMO GAFFE

February 8, 2008 — The New York Times ran a front-page story critical of the Guantanamo anti-terror prison without checking to find out that its co-author was a bitter critic of the jail and of US policy, the newspaper acknowledged yesterday.

The paper’s editors “were not aware” of the “outspoken position” of British freelancer Andy Worthington, who shared the byline on the article, according to an Editors’ Note in the newspaper.

Not aware? What with those “layers” of editors and fact checking professional journalists at your disposal, you had no idea who was sharing a byline on your front page? Unpossible!

I mean, any JammieWearingFool could find multiple examples that would tell you where this guy was coming from….

That is, if you even bothered to look.
