The New York Times. Our motto: "Still sucking up to authority, and proud of it"

If you want proof of just how wretched and pathetic the NYT has become lately, just compare the ledes from these articles you can find here side by side at I'll just highlight the salient bits, and you can judge for yourself -- this doesn't require any additional commentary from me.

From the Associated Press:

Newly unearthed memos state George W. Bush was suspended from flying for the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam war because he failed to meet Guard standards and failed to take his annual flight physical as required.

From the New York Times:

President Bush's Vietnam-era service in the National Guard came under renewed scrutiny on Wednesday as newfound documents emerged from his squadron commander's file that suggested favorable treatment.

I don't know if it's possible to get any more kiss-ass than the Times these days, but I'll bet they're working on it.

UPDATE: And the Associated Press still shows how to kick butt here.
