Mickey Kaus on NYT’s Buffoonery

Kausfiles on the ruin of the ruins:

Excitable Times in Ruins! Did the New York Times really run a story last week headlined:

More Clashes Shake Iraq; Political Talks Are in Ruins

“Ruins”? Wow. That is embarrassing. … The hed was repeated in the story’s lede, which said that “political negotiations over a new government” were “in ruins.” Funny thing, though–in today’s NYT, negotiations seem to be going on again. Those Iraqi “ruins” get picked up pretty quickly. … P.S.: I’m not saying Bill Keller’s** headline and lede writers were amping up the Iraq hysteria in order to manufacture another Tet. Maybe they just have no judgment or perspective. It’s bleeding obvious that when a Sunni delegation announces it is “suspending talks” in reaction to some awful sectarian attacks, that doesn’t mean talks won’t be un-suspended after a decent interval. … In this case it took 48 hours. … [Thanks to Mudville Gazette for pointing out the NYT howler.]
