The New York Times seemed confused about what day it was yesterday. The front page carried a hilarious parody of a news story entitled, "Outflanked Democrats Wonder How to Catch Up in Media Wars." The story says liberals feel they dont have enough clout in the major media to "get their message out." Could it be April Fools Day and I missed three months of my life?
Among the comic gems of the story is this line: "In one of the more ambitious ideas circulating, a group of wealthy Democratic supporters is toying with the idea of starting a liberal cable network."
Uh, ever heard of CNN, not to mention ABC?
My guess is that this new comedy writing is Howell Raines idea to rescue the sinking reputation of the Times.
Now back to Augusta.
