NY Times Refuses to Run McCain Rebuttal

The New York Times does have one redeeming quality: its open-minded editorial page. Just last year it ran an editorial by a representative of the Islamic terror group Hamas. As its Public Editor Clark Hoyt explained:

Op-ed pages are for debate, but if you get only one side, that’s not debate. And that’s not healthy.

However, there are limits:

An editorial written by Republican presidential hopeful McCain has been rejected by the NEW YORK TIMES — less than a week after the paper published an essay written by Obama, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The paper’s decision to refuse McCain’s direct rebuttal to Obama’s ‘My Plan for Iraq‘ has ignited explosive charges of media bias in top Republican circles.

These Republicans are missing the big difference between McCain and Obama. McCain is wrong and Obama is right — about everything. Just ask anyone in the mainstream media.

Voters need to be protected against being swayed by the wrong candidate. Thank you New York Times, for your willingness to sacrifice even the most basic standards of fairness and journalistic integrity to your higher calling of civic service!
