The NY Times outdoes itself Swapping News and Editorials

The New York Times has established a reputation for infusing its news stories with the editors’ biases.  However, it outdid itself when it posted an editorial about Obama’s drone strikes one day, and subsequently posted the virtually identical article as a news story on the following day.  Both had the same misstatements which: ignored the studies pointing to Obama’s killing of civilians with drones; blamed Bush for the program; and defended Obama.

The editorial: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/24/opinion/the-deaths-of-innocents.html?_r=0

The “news story” the next day: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/25/world/asia/drone-issue-hovers-more-than-ever-even-as-strikes-ebb.html
