A Carnival of NYT-bashing is available for your amusement starting at Instapundit. I figure most of you guys read InstaMan anyway, but let's just say this is what NYT Times Executive Editor Howell Raines calls "flooding the zone." Enjoy.

UPDATE: I was just reading Kausfiles, which is always good and exceptionally good on this one--and I see he uses the "flood the zone" crack too. Great minds think alike etc....

UPDATE Version 1.2: Andrew Sullivan reprints the entire Dave Anderson Oct. 6 column that ME Gerald Boyd cites, in his leaked memo linked below. As part of his spike-defense, Boyd says Anderson had already used that occasion to question the Times' position. Sullivan points out that the column does no such thing--it's more of generic, balanced news story quoting people on the pros and cons. But there's another problem: Mickey Kaus, Slate's Jack Shafer, Sullivan and my next-door neighbor have all counted something like 40 NYT stories on the issue. But Anderson can't write about it twice?
