Invest alot in journalism but still get crap output....

The reason that the New York Times is no longer a serious newspaper is that it no longer so much reports the news as it pushes its political agenda. And the the public editor says as much albeit in an obtuse manner....
I still believe that, but also see that the hive on Eighth Avenue is powerfully shaped by a culture of like minds — a phenomenon, I believe, that is more easily recognized from without than from within.

......Across the paper’s many departments, though, so many share a kind of political and cultural progressivism — for lack of a better term — that this worldview virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times.

As a result, developments like the Occupy movement and gay marriage seem almost to erupt in The Times, overloved and undermanaged, more like causes than news subjects.
Foolishly progressive and whacky in their editorial positions, when one speaks of extremism, a NY progressive and the New York Times comes to mind. They can not fathom the depth of their Marxist ideology since it pumps through their veins an infects every sinew of their being.

As a result, developments like the Occupy movement and gay marriage seem almost to erupt in The Times, overloved and undermanaged, more like causes than news subjects.
