Ask the NYT
Atrios is wondering why some reporters for the New York Times are still gainfully employed there.
You might want to also ask about why they kept Jeff Gerth on despite his blatant lies and key factual omissions.
And, why they allowed Kit Seelye to stay on after manufacturing a scandal by misquoting Al Gore, or Rick Berke's numerous embellishments and misrepresentations during the campaign.
No, Jayson Blair is not among the incompetent and/or corrupt journalists mentioned. For some reason, I don't expect the Right blogosphere to pick up Atrios' entry.
