What is Wrong With the NY Times?

It’s like the NY Times has only three or four people in Alaska to call when doing a story about Sarah Palin — and her political enemy, Lyda Green, is one of them. Notice how they list everything in their description of why Green should be a trusted source except for the animosity between the two):

“People were afraid to vote ‘no’ against her,” said Lyda Green, a state senator and Republican – and a neighbor of the governor in the Anchorage suburb of Wasilla. In the oil industry tax overhaul, for example, Ms. Green said the pressure became intense.
“Her extraordinary popularity and this intense dislike of the industry that many Alaskans have – you put those two together and it’s tough,” she said. “People would go to town meetings and come back feeling compelled to support her.”

Well, we saw why tonight people were afraid to vote against her. She makes sense when she talks and is really good at explaining her position to ordinary folks.
But, back to the Times, will you please list Lyda Green as a Palin adversary? It’s the truth and it’s fit to print.
