Both Sides?

The New York Times, America’s premier newspaper, the newspaper with “all the news that’s fit to print” gets it wrong again.

Mr. Kerry’s nemesis, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, is spending $1.3 million in five swing states with a spot accusing him of meeting with the enemy in Paris – a reference to his trip to the Paris peace talks, where he met with both sides.

You would think that someone who pretends to be writing a serious news story would at least get their facts straight. Or maybe they don’t want too.
