Apparently, The New York Times has appointed a special editor to monitor what it calls "opinion media" and that said editor should "brief them frequently on bubbling controversies."

The Times has not identified that sorry individual (imagine watching Fox News all day?) but I'm surprised the paper wasn't watching Fox already.

Surely the paper of record should be keeping an eye on ALL media?

And by the way, I don't think the Times is a liberal newspaper so I don't think it's a so-called liberal bias.

Funny it took them 13 years to realize that Fox and friends are pretty influential here.
