I pointed out this quote from Bill Keller last December. In light of the NYT’s McCain rehash, I thought you’d appreciate reading it again. Remember, put your beverages down first:

…we are agnostic as to where a story may lead; we do not go into a story with an agenda or a preconceived notion. We do not manipulate or hide facts to advance an agenda. We strive to preserve our independence from political and economic interests, including our own advertisers. We do not work in the service of a party, or an industry, or even a country. When there are competing views of a situation, we aim to reflect them as clearly and fairly as we can.

The Times’ front-page hit piece of innuendo-filled trash-and-rehash exposes the Grand Canyon-sized gap between Keller’s rhetoric and reality.

***

For what it’s worth, here’s Keller’s defense of the McCain piece.
