9/11 and the NYT
There were 3 basic leftist conspiracies: A friend quipped were the planes just flown by "Foreign Exchange Students"? Showing the absurdity of the left's underselling the vicious intent on this.
My quip is that even if they avoided the truth of saying Islamic Radicalism, because that truth, like most truths, is considered offensive in leftist circles -- they could have just broadened the cause to collectivism/tribalism/self-righteousness, I'd be fine. But of course, any of those might encourage the editorial staff into self-reflection, and they couldn't have that.
