IN the 10 days leading up to Hillary Clinton's victories last week in Ohio and Texas, the news media came under withering attack for being, in the words of a "Saturday Night Live" skit, "totally in the tank" for Barack Obama. After Clinton won, Obama said the news media caved under pressure from her campaign and suggested that her record has not been as thoroughly examined as she claims.
What about The Times? Has it been in the tank for Obama and unfairly tough on Clinton? Has it looked enough into their records and backgrounds?
