NY Times ... again

I know I'm becoming fixated on this, but in this AM's edition (at least the on-line edition) of the NY Times' coverage of the CIA papers, they chose to use a photo of Richard Nixon sitting with CIA chief Richard Helms in 1973:

According to the piece, the CIA papers detail improper, immoral, illegal and unethical activities carried out by the Agency under Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson as well as Nixon.

The Times could have chosen any of those sitting with , but they went with their hearts and portrayed Nixon as the evil-est of all.

Another example of the New York Times editorializing on its news pages.

I'm surprised they didn't figure out how to use a picture of GWB. After all, they think he's responsible for every negative thing from no bubbles in my soda to global warming. Surely he had a hand in the nefarious activities of the CIA!
