Default New York Times editor blames readers for dustup over John McCain article

New York Times editor blames readers for dustup over John McCain article

Quote:
The embattled executive editor of the New York Times defended its John McCain story Friday with a novel explanation for the flood of critical e-mails the newspaper received: slow-witted readers.

"Personally, I was surprised by the volume of the reaction," Bill Keller wrote in a Times Web site Q&A forum. Readers posted 2,000 comments and sent in 3,700 questions.

"I was surprised by how lopsided the opinion was against our decision, with readers who described themselves as independents and Democrats joining Republicans in defending Mr. McCain from what they saw as a cheap shot," Keller added.

The problem, Keller went on, is that readers didn't get it.

"Frankly, I was a little surprised by how few readers saw what was, to us, the larger point of the story."
You like that?...

This smug moron from the New York Times says if YOU don't get what they were trying to say instead of them just coming out and saying it, then YOU are stupid...

Oh I saw the "larger point" of this story and I also saw that the NYT failed to make it's case..
