NYT Endorses (Pretty Much) Elizabeth Warren

In an editorial today headlined “Elizabeth Warren’s Appeal,” the New York Times effectively appeals for you to vote for the Massachusetts Senate candidate.

Nut graf:

She is both knowledgeable and accessible when she explains the destructive credit-swap and subprime mortgage games that created the financial crisis. She draws a detailed map back to the early deregulation of the 1980s that began to rip the nation’s economic fabric — the same deregulatory fervor the Republicans are preaching today.

Her larger appeal, though, comes from her ability to shred Republican arguments that rebalancing the tax burden constitutes class warfare. In a living-room speech that went viral on YouTube last month, she pointed out that people in this country don’t get rich entirely by themselves — everyone benefits from roads, public safety agencies and an education system paid for by taxes. And those who have benefited the most, she says, need to give back more.

The Times, it seems, is giving back plenty.

    I’m shocked that the NYTimes would endorse Ms. Warren’s liberal cause. Absolutely SHOCKED!

    • Campaign Outsider says:

      It’s not that, Mudge – she isn’t even the nominee yet. A little restraint is in order, even for the Times.

      • Curmudgeon says:

        I sense that we are seeing the orbit that is political advocacy in the guise of journalism reaching the extremity its extension.

        My objection is their unwillingess either to understand or admit that they have moved to one side of the pericenter or the other.

        Biased journalism is not necessarily bad journalism.
