The New York Times continues its descent into sub-mediocrity:
Yesterday’s show also included an interview with Tim Russert, the host of NBC's "Meet the Press," one of a great number of political and media heavyweights who appear regularly on "Imus in the Morning." (The NBC spokeswoman said the statement expressing regret about the remarks reflected Mr. Russert's feelings about the matter as well.)
Both Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, Democrat of Connecticut, and Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, recently appeared on the show, and media figures including Frank Rich of The New York Times and Chris Matthews of MSNBC have also spent time with Mr. Imus. Senator Barack Obama, Democrat of Illinois, appeared on the show some time ago to promote his book "The Audacity of Hope."
A real journalist, and his editors, would know that Joe Lieberman is not a Democrat.
As to the point of the article, I think it's beyond the point where actual Democrats can justify their appearances on the Imus program. Yes, I'm talking to you, Senators Kerry and Dodd. As for Joe Lieberman and Tim Russert, I'm sure they feel right at home.
