A College Newspaper

With its writers and editors attacking each other within the same pages, the New York Times at this point looks like an unsupervised college newspaper. What I had hoped was an autobiograpical column, "A Woman of Mass Destruction," turned out to be another explosion of envy from Maureen Dowd. The sexism in the column -- Dowd charges Judith Miller with a "tropism toward powerful men" and this from Howell Raines' favorite employee -- is very disappointing. If only Judith Miller had protected a liberal source -- and cut corners on behalf of a story that would give the left a triumphant storyline -- she too could share column space with Dowd.
