Memo to the New York Times: Why You’re Hemorrhaging Subscibers

… because the editors are embarrassing even to other liberals.  Note in the mail box from a NYC lawyer friend regarding my earlier post about the Times’ Hamdan editorial:

I gotta say — while I just don’t feel that I know enough about the procedural protections that the defendants did have in the trial to make a fair assessment about whether it comports with the process that I believe should be due in such a situation (which I do believe should tolerate something less than the full panoply afforded to civilian defendants) — I read the absurd Times editorial today and had the same thought as you.  It was obviously in the can before the verdicts were announced and totally dishonest in light of the real outcome.  I’m a liberal and they really make me sick sometimes.
