Whose side is the New York Times on?
You need look no farther than their headlines:
Not "Opposition's Plan to Recall Chavez Faces Setback in Venezuela." No, the plan belongs to Venezuelans, apparently all of them, including the 80% or so who voted for Chavez, according to the Times. And not "Aristide describes U.S.-led Coup." No, he's just a bitter old nut.

Even CNN, hardly a progressive source, has headlines that are a lot less biased:
Sunday, Billmon got in touch with his inner Ann Coulter by expressing disappointment that the global-warming tidal wave in the upcoming movie "The Day After Tomorrow" probably wouldn't reach the Times building in Manhattan. I'm starting to agree with him (as long as Krugman and Herbert are safe).
