Sliding Headlong Into Irrelevancy

The formidable Michelle Malkin has been all over the way in which the New York Times omitted part of a letter a soldier serving in Iraq had written to his girlfriend if he were to die in service to his country. He subsequently did, which is tragic. The Times, however, had a broader (and leftist) point to make in covering this story. Read Malkin's coverage for yourself.

As this chart shows,

the last couple of years haven't been pleasant ones for owners of NYT stock. The brilliant move of Times Select doesn't seem to be helping matters much either. Not only does the Old Gray Lady face increasing competition from the blogs and other alternative media, but its consistent arrogance in dealing with claims of bias has turned many readers, and subscribers, off. Good.
