Grey Lady Rising

...to the challenge, at last. Here is what the New York Times is supposed to do. Here is what a 'free press' looks like when it is trying to do its job; when it is attempting to tell us something is wrong by the very act of complying with rules which are, themselves, broken. Note the following sentence: "Agency officials told us that they had concluded on their own that the original draft included no classified material, but that they had to bow to the White House." That is an extremely interesting claim, even from a strictly legal point of view.

It's been a good while since the Grey Lady has shown the gleam of combat in her eye. It's good to see it again. Here's hoping she can bring some sunshine.
