The New York Times, while always in the tank for liberals, Democrats, anti-war types, and snobs has finally given up all pretense of impartiality.
Obama submits an Op-Ed and it is published in it's entirety. Fine. He has stuff to say and better or worse America needs to hear it. You know, the plan Obama came up with for Iraq *before* he went to Iraq
Then they tell McCain to submit one. So far so good. Sounds fair, right?
But the Times rejected it.
From ABC's blog "Political Radar"
According to McCain campaign staffers, the rejection came Friday night from New York Times oped editorial page editor David Shipley via email:
"I'd be very eager to publish the Senator on the oped page. However I'm not going to be able to accept this piece as currently written," Shipley writes, according to a copy of the message provided to ABC News.
"It would be terrific to have an article from Sen. McCain that mirrors Sen. Obama's piece. To that end, the article would have to articulate, in concrete terms how Sen. McCain defines victory in Iraq. It would also have to lay out a clear plan for achieving victory -- with troop levels, timetables and measures for compelling the Iraqis to cooperate."
Excuse me!!!!!!! Why don't they just say "We love Obama and as soon as *you* love Obama too....we will publish your opinion."
