Another Bullet in the Old Gray Lady’s Ass

Does anyone even remotely believe this self-serving bullshit?

The Watergate scandal that brought down US president Richard Nixon was one of the great news scoops of the 20th century, and the New York Times on Monday revealed it nearly had the story in its grasp. The early 1970s scandal, which turned the two Washington Post reporters who exposed it into journalism icons, was revealed in part to two Times reporters before the rival Post got it — but they it slip.

NY Times claims it knew of Watergate scandal first

According to the article, the Gray Lady passed on the story because they had bigger political stories on the front burner….

Riiiight.

This is something that is, what? Thirty-some odd years in the rear view mirror? Yet it still gnaws on the Gray Lady’s hubristic nerves… that two young punks, working from the WaPo’s City desk, scooped their asses on the biggest American political story of all time.

With their credibility already swirling ’round the drain, running crap like this is just bloody pathetic. If this was even remotely true, why haven’t we heard about it for almost forty friggin’ years?

the bullet list.
