Only because I am so comfortable with all the conservatives on this board am I giving them this fodder for further derision of the New York Times. If you've commited conservative hari-kiri and registered, here's the link. Click Here

Correction

An article on Nov. 10 about animal rights referred erroneously to an island in the Indian Ocean and to events there involving goats and endangered giant sea sparrows that could possibly lead to the killing of goats by environmental groups. Wrightson Island does not exist; both the island and the events are hypothetical figments from a book (also mentioned in the article), ''Beginning Again,'' by David Ehrenfeld. No giant sea sparrow is known to be endangered by the eating habits of goats.

I wrote a thesis on the liberal bias of the Times 7 years ago, and had to use it as a source to go through French politics in the 1870's. If I never read it again, it will be to soon. God Bless the New York Post.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
That is all I have to say. Don't they even check their FACTS at that paper? Were the editors in the back having a bowl when that story crossed their desk? My question is, how prominant was the original story in the paper, and how far buried was that retraction?

The retraction was at the end of the letters column, where they always are. It was for the magazine. I didn't read the original article.

Only in the Times will you see the sentence "no giant sea sparrow is known to be endangered by the eating habits of goats." That's priceless.

Nah, they were too busy toeing the party line on Augusta National...

I haven't heard anything about this? Is it legit? All of those verses sound like something from the Onion or the Daily Show. Hook us up with a link, if you can. -S
