The fact that a newspaper editorial board wrote an opinion piece is standard industry practice. I’m kind of mystified that people in this discussion seem to think there’s something nefarious about it.
I don't think anyone claimed it nefarious...

The point being made is that this article cements (further) that the New York Times is an extension of the Democrat Party and has no intention of any objectivity...

So?
It doesn't have to be an outside source.
Editorials are about expressing opinions. And it should go without saying that sometimes those opinions will be biased.

Anybody who uses an editorial (whether by the editorial board or not) to judge the entire paper as partisan is clearly trying desperately to arrive at a conclusion they already arrived at.

From the editorial:
The editorial board represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher. It is separate from the newsroom and the Op-Ed section.
The type of argument you present would be like saying that if you, WallyWager and I agreed on something of a partisan nature, that proves the entire forum has that opinion.
It's a b.s. argument.

Ah yes, echo the pedantic trolling as if anyone who questions the so-called objectivity of the NYT just doesn't understand the meaning of editorials. The NYT editorial board is rabidly anti Trump and the supposedly objective news content follows suit but somehow we are supposed to believe America's self appointed newspaper of record doesn't have a partisan bias?

John Podesta's emails exposed reporter Glenn Thrush as a stenographer for Hillary's campaign. The corruption was so bad fired Thrush. Not to worry, with great fanfare the NYT hired Thrush as the senior WH correspondent assigned to the Trump WH. Turns out that in addition to being a self described hack Thrush is a drunk and sexual harasser but since he shares the NYT partisan bias he keeps his job.

It is amusing to see the desperate attempt to mask the NYT partisan bias by some far fetched analogy as if a political discussion site is somehow equivalent to the self proclaimed objective NYT. Unlike the NYT editorial board PW contributors don't all work for the same company. Unlike the NYT there is input from both sides of the political aisle. Unlike the NYT PW doesn't pose as a source of objective reporting. The difference is so vast claiming the two are analogous is either desperation or dishonesty.

And this only works on people gullible enough to believe it...

They don't represent the company..I know because they said so!!!!...

Fox says they're "Fair and Balanced"...I have a feeling you don't give them the same blind trust...
