All the news thats fit to slant

The New York Times did its best to persuade its readers that the Duke 3 might be guilty of the charges against them. Now it seems equally determined to persuade its readers that Mike Nifong might be innocent of the ethics charges against him. Today's article on Mr. Nifong's ethics trial quotes only the apparently=exculpatory (for Mr. Nifong) testimony from the not-at-all-credible Dr. Meehan about why DNA evidence was not turned over to the defense, while studiously avoiding any mention of the fact that Dr. Meehan's testimony stands in direct contradiction to both his own December 15 testimony on the same issue, and to Mr. Nifong's statements in a press conference he gave immediately after the December 15 hearing.
