#1 I'd be happy to meet with the author and carry this to it's logical conclusion for him.

#2 STFU NYT. There is nothing at all moral about the owner, the paper, or the staff. Just a bunch of yentas preaching for their dear leader.
Ant-Semites and people who just plan cannot do math.
Your paper is unable to ascertain basic FACTS or even consider common sense. The editors are either blind or stupid.
Only scumbags would convert their whole paper to back the group of leftists that brought the most pain and suffering to the world in the 20'th century.
What would be fair? an expose of how you backed Mussolini, Pol Pot, North Vietnam, Hitler, and sat quiet while they shoved 12 million people into ovens.
NYT, you may cram your staff's "Morals" up your ass you pitiable dung assed creatures. You have no Virtue.
Keep masturbating to this dumb ass you backed for POTUS. You are still not going to make it through my firewall.

#3 We've come a long way if the NYT is at least admitting there is a double standard.

#4 Stanley Fish is only incidentally a blogger at the NYT and occasional contributor to the WSJ.
He is primarily an academic in legal theory and literature who managed, among other things, to utterly gut the English department at Duke when he was chair there. He has been an influential voice in favor of campus (and other) speech codes, embraces identity politics in all extreme forms and was described by Camille Paglia as a "totalitarian Tinkerbell".
Fish currently teaches law at Florida International University,

#5 ...you will be affirming a single standard, and moreover it will be a moral one because you will be going with what you think is good rather than what you think is fair.
So, according to this guy, if somebody thinks it'd be a good idea to open up Stanley Fish's pompous assed head with a baseball bat, he'd have to be OK with that? Right?

#6 The truth is they don't care about the double-standard. They want to attack their ideological foes and any weapon will do. We all know it, its been the facts on the ground for decades. Hopefully Joe Sixpack knows it as well now.

It substitutes for the rule "don't do it to them if you don't want it done to you" the rule "be sure to do it to them first and more effectively." It implies finally that might makes right. I can live with that.
Wow. The left really is going all-in for tyranny, aren't they?
Posted by Rob Crawford 2012-03-14 15:47||
#10 Yep, till they find themselves lined up before the ditch. Then they'll be screaming about 'rights' they've denied others. Then the 'might makes right' argument takes a real bad turn. Having the 'It's ok as long as we do it' rammed through everyone's head, it'll be a little too late.

#11 Stanley must have been a disappointment to his mother when she realized that he is an idiot and also has tendencies towards fascism.

#12 It has been said, and I think it is correct, that the news media in America is dying for one primary reason: the public wants to read news written by objective reporters; they do not want to read about journalist's opinions pieces that so corrupt the news that it is no longer news.
If you want a newspaper to succeed, fire the journalists and hire reporters. If the reporters don't report what happens, fire them and get new ones. If it is too boring for college educated people to do this, then fire them and hire high school educated people to do this.
The editor needs to be college educated to edit, and to make sure the reporters don't make very ignorant mistakes. But even he doesn't need to be a journalist.

lotp, I thought you made that up. Turns out FIU has an actual law school, which moved up 19 spots in U.S. News and World Report's rankings, from 132 to 113. So they went from a half-assed third-tier school to a ho-hum third-tier school.
Admits 20% of everyone who applies. Out-of-state tuition: $30k/year. I.e., they're happy to fleece unwitting students whose chances of getting a job doing something other than debt collection, ambulance chasing, or running an OccuPooper protest are zip. Excuse my snobbery, but it's not a real law school and they'll never be real lawyers.
But worth it, for access to Stanley Fish!
