Quietly, the New York Times is helping to enable the end of censorship in China, and preparing to take advantage of a free and open media in a post-censorship China.
Despite its legions of Page One editors, copy editors, proofreaders and support staff, the Gray Lady proceeded to fetishize conflict by using the words "rift" or "riven" in the headline or lead paragraph, actually the lead clause, in four of the stories on today's front page.
"The people are being reduced to blood and dust. They are in pieces."
Businesses are still hiring, but mostly in the lower-paying service industries, as higher-paying manufacturing jobs continue to move overseas. So Bernie and The Donald are right in calling out U.S. corporations.
For a leader regularly written off by the press as a lame duck 18 months ago, President Obama has tallied some major wins during his second term, and voters have taken notice. So why isn't there more media credit directed his way?
Haberman is a seasoned, smart journalist with a stellar reputation, and that makes her story -- and her "he's complicated" rationale for writing it -- all the more baffling.
