Gray Lady Begins to Smell the Coffee

From Editor & Publisher:
NEW YORK An internal committee at The New York Times has recommended steps to increase readers' confidence in the newspaper, including reducing errors, increasing coverage of religion, "rural areas" and "middle America," making reporters and editors more accessible, and possibly starting a blog.
No, no, not that...anything but a blog from the New York Times. Here's a radical idea: stop with the interpretive reporting and advocacy journalism and the news, accurately. Stop endorsing political candidates. Stop promoting causes. Just report the news without bias.

Via The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, where Emperor Darth Misha I did an excellent fisking of the NYT's self-important self-examination.
