Borderline Disloyal

The New York Observer's press column this week contrasts New York's two tabloids in how they handled Condoleeza Rice's testimony before the 9/11 commission. The News' front page said HOW COULD SHE NOT KNOW? while the Post cried THE LADY IS A CHAMP!.

Daily News editorial director Martin Dunn told the Observer, "I was going around the newsroom saying ‘That’s the difference between the News and the Post—we’re a newspaper, they’re a propaganda sheet!’"

Post editor Col Allen said the News is "becoming more and more determined to attack the Bush administration. They are doing so with increasing shrillness. ... Frankly, I think it’s borderline disloyal."

Sir, have you no ... never mind. Stupid question.
