The once venerable New York Times, lead dog of the now mangy pack that drags the rickety sled of the mainstream media leftward over the American tundra, is showing further signs of dysplasia. In a piece at American Thinker, Steve McCann reports that circulation of the Times has declined 22% in just six years while its common stock has done even worse, plummeting 77% in the same period. But, as McCann indicates,
[…] there seem to be few questions asked as to why the loss of readership which impacts advertisers…Certainly it could not be due to their one sided and overwhelmingly left-wing approach to the news and not so subtle cheerleading for the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party which has driven many to seek comparatively unbiased news sources elsewhere such as the internet, Fox News and a few still objective newspapers.
Even adding a comics page wouldn’t help the old Gray Lady. After all, nothing could generate more laughs than a New York Times editorial.
Friday Meet And Greet
First up, from the Great State of Illinois, here’s William J. Lee For U.S. Senate
- I am a conservative and independent thinker who trusts in his fellow citizens more than government. I plan on running for the U.S. Senate as I can no longer be a spectator as our Freedoms are being eroded and as we descend further into socialist servitude. As a Senator I can do the most for Illinois and this country that has given me so much.
- I am a USAF retiree and have lived in England; Uijongbu, Korea; Port au Prince Haiti; Tuzla, Bosnia; and Kandahar, Afghanistan. Military qualifications include Airborne, Air Assault, and Expert Marksman.
Life Member, Law Enforcement Alliance of America

- America is more than a place to earn a paycheck. It is an ideal of freedom, opportunity and individuality, not group rights. I would like to preserve that vision.
And here’s Craig Andresen. Craig’s not running for anything. He’s the host of the Maybe I’m Nuts…But blog. Be sure to see his recipe for Pinot Peach Noir.
- Life is Short…Eat Dessert First. Any recipe that starts with a whole bottle of Pinot Noir can’t be all bad, can it?
