Caught in the Act

This article by Charles Krauthammer is valuable not for Krauthammer's support for an attack on Iraq (which I oppose) but with the journalistic games the New York Times is playing in its campaign against the invasion of Iraq. The NYT is an opinionated paper, and this is a good case-study in how it has been going about influencing public opinion not just with editorials (which are a great addition to a paper) but by selectively shading and presenting the facts (which is incompatible with freedom).
