If anybody still has faith in the Times...

Check out Sarah's post, here. And be sure to follow the link to the Jewish Week article.

Kitzer version, for those who are sick of this: Feldman and his girlfriend were not Photoshopped out of the article. They were cropped, along with quite a few others, because there were too many people to fit into one frame. He knew this before the article was published, and so, it appears, did the Times. But they ran the article anyway, knowing that the, ah, rather inflammatory lede about him being edited out of the picture was false.

And you know, while it's sad, it really doesn't surprise me.

The Times hasn't surprised me with that sort of behavior in some time. I lost all my faith in their claim of "all the news that's fit to print" when they covered the Jenin "massacre." Yeah. Right. But still... *sigh*

I think the line that they've crossed with this one is that there is undeniable proof that they published lies, which they knew were lies pre-publication; they published anyway; and they've been called on it, and they're ignoring it completely.

Oh. Wait. That isn't new at all, is it.

Okay, well, there goes the one bit of Feldman's article where I was kinda-sorta backing him up.
