Donald Trump still hates the New York Times
Ever since a New York Times reporter published an unflattering book about him, Donald Trump has been waging a personal vendetta against the Times in the blogosphere. If Steven Seagal were a blogger, this is how he'd do it: a smashmouth, don't-take-prisoners type of frontal attack into the belly of the beast. Here's Trump's latest:
"I think anyone who has lost a son, a daughter, or a loved one in the war in Iraq should sue The New York Times for Judith Miller's false reporting about the so-called "weapons of mass destruction" as a premise for that war. It's one thing to get a bad review, it's another to lose more than 2,000 lives because of false or inaccurate reporting. Imagine having the Judith Millers of the world working for you and getting away with things that are inconceivable to a journalist. We have to draw the line somewhere, and that's where I draw the line. All the news that's fit to print seems to have evolved into "whatever we decide to print is the news, whether it is correct or not!"

In addition, the current mess with Judith Miller has made me wonder what is going on there. What kind of reporting is The New York Times doing? Who are they really working for? Can we afford to believe anything they print? Do they have a conscience? Do they know that power includes responsibility? Do they even know what they are doing? I think The New York Times has some big-time cleaning up to do, but I wonder if it's too late."
