In their zeal to find the ties tightly binding the White House’s latest villain, House Minority Leader John Boehner, to lobbyists, the New York Times fails to mention those tight bonds between the White House and lobbyists.
Well, maybe the paper’s editors are just playing to its base.
In his piece finding that fewer Democrats are following the news this election cycle (than did just two years ago), Bruce Davis unearths this telling tidbit:
Unsurprisingly, Obama gets his highest approval ratings among regular viewers of Olbermann (84 percent approve) and Maddow (80 percent approve), but he also does almost as well with readers of The New York Times (79 percent approve).
Seems the readership of the Times is now nearly identical to the viewership of the most leftist shows on MSNBC. Don’t think their hit piece on Boehner will impact the Republican Leader’s standing among the American people.
And given the Times‘ readership, I doubt they’ll be reporting that a woman who once (and may yet again) held Boehner’s current title “has pocketed nearly twice as much lobbyist cash as” has the Ohio Republican.
