Crack NYT Editorial Team Discovers 8-Month Old Press Release
Even for the New York Times, this is a little odd. Yesterday, in a house editorial, the paper alerted its readers of the latest outrage: "Now Mitt Romney has made [Robert] Bork a chairman of his Justice Advisory Committee."
Now? This was announced in August of last year. Don't bother suffering through the editorial, as there is absolutely nothing new to justify the grey lady's decision to react eight months after the fact. It's a boilerplate attack on Bork -- the only amusing part is the paper's disgust at Bork position that "except when the Constitution expressly says otherwise, the court must defer to the will of the majority." That, of course, is exactly what the NYT and the President have been saying about Obamacare.
So what gives? Did the editorial board just decide that they didn't have any new smears that day, so they dredged up the old press release?
