Shame on the NYT 

It was pathetic enough that the New York Times made Noam Chomsky an op-ed columnist contributor. You thought the NYT couldn't go any lower than that...and then you got this whopper:

2-3-04: "Veterans Move to Kerry, Even from Afar":
"I don't think I could vote for George Bush again when I think of the 500 people killed in Iraq and what's happened to the economy in this country," said George Meagher, an independent, who runs the American Military Museum in Charleston and said he now favors Mr. Kerry.

2-22-04: "Disenchanted Bush Voters Consider Crossing Over":
"George Meagher, a Republican who founded and now runs the American Military Museum in Charleston, S.C., said he threw his "heart and soul" into the Bush campaign four years ago. He organized veterans to attend campaign events, including the campaign's kickoff speech at the Citadel. He even has photographs of himself and his wife with Mr. Bush.

So the Times manufactures two blatantly anti-Bush articles by going to the same guy each time for negative quotes. How can any conservative or liberal who values intellectual honesty read this newspaper??
