Oh, PJ

PJ O'Rourke, in his usual vivid way, talks about the sneaking, blaming, and divisive way that the NYT handled the Tucson shootings, right out of the gate.
In the article’s second paragraph we are told that the accused, Jared Loughner, had an Internet site that “contained antigovernment ramblings.” The same may be said​—​at least in respect to ramblings against the newly sworn-in House of Representatives​—​about Internet sites posting speeches by President Obama.
And, also quoted by Instapundit,
In the matter of self-serving, bitter, calculated cynicism, there wouldn’t seem to be much left to prove against the Times. Judging by what I’ve heard from my fellow conservatives, the issue is decided. The New York Times is a worthless, truthless, vicious institution. But I disagree. I think things are worse than that.
And he didn't even mention Paul Krugman.

Krugman is what my teenaged son would call a DB. I Will Not Elaborate.
