I’m sure somewhere someone is surprised
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, November 04, 2006

Heh ... I noticed this when I went to the NY Times Opinion page in the index listing its editorials. There is one which was talking about their upcoming political endorsements. Talk about a laugh:
On Tuesday, when this page runs the list of people it has endorsed for election, we will include no Republican Congressional candidates for the first time in our memory.
Actually I think it's just making the obvious official.

Is that actually true? Has the NYTimes ever endorsed a Republican for Congress? Maybe Peter King, when he had no opponent? I suppose there were a few Republicans in the NYC area without opponents in the last few years. But I can’t recall them endorsing a Republican with a real opponent.

Yes, but couldn’t they have spent just a few minutes doing actual research to determine just exactly when they last endorsed no Republicans? I mean, do they have a GOOD memory? Sorry if I’m not trusting them.

The phrasing "in our memory" reminds me of writing papers in Junior High and being too lazy to look something up (and I never DID use the cloying Royal "we" - I was never THAT bad of a writer)!

A look back at the Times archives through 1972 finds that the paper’s powerful editorial page endorsed at least one Republican for the House or Senate every year. Some of these were well-known local moderates like Hamilton Fish and Bill Green. Others include a young Connecticut candidate named John Rowland in 1986.

I can’t blame them....they can’t risk endorsing even 1 Repub for fear the Dems don’t take the house back.

I’m not taking position, just posting information.

The NY Times seems to be both liberally biased and was also part of the propaganda machine for the selling of this war. They were for the war before the were against it.

Either way, other than some occasionally decent columnists, they are worthless to me.
