Theya culpa!

Well, sort of... the New York Times isn't officially admitting to unfairness and inaccuracy, but its departing Public Editor, Daniel Okrent is.

It's shockingly refreshing. If the Times in general were this candid, I think they would get a lot more sympathy. We can understand the pressures (deadlines, competitive "scoop" pressures, and financial pressures with the decline of print media) of the news business. If the Times were more honest and willing to admit its mistakes and biases, they would cease to be viewed as an arrogant and willfully deceitful villian.
