I have taken another pass at commenting on this past Thursday’s New York Times love-in with Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Dan Rather, and Mary Mapes talking about the forthcoming Rathergate film Truth. I take a whack at the Times in the City Journal column “Truth and the New York Times.”
Power Line readers don’t need my brief refresher course on the facts of the scandal, but I think you will appreciate the quote from Malcolm Muggeridge about the Times at the end of the piece. It is, shall we say, right on point. I am grateful to City Journal for publishing the column in advance of the release of the film and ask you to check it out if you have stayed with me so far!
