I grew up reading Newsweek and then Time. I've read lots of issues of the New York Times and The Washington Post.

I said farewell to the MSM for several reasons: the increasingly snide and superior tone, the decline of prose standards, the bias. But perhaps most important was the deterioration in quality of reporting--more and more mistakes in fact.

Powerline in this post prints the New York Times Corrections from its own obituary of Walter Cronkite. The errors of fact made in the obituary of a god of Mainstream News sends the irony meter off the scale.

And they had the nerve to make fun of Dan Quayle and mock Sarah Palin.
