All the usual suspects and their head cheerleader

Rantingprofs has some fun with the NY Times' response to the UN Oil-for-Palaces scandal:
You would think that the people who are so insistent on the ability of the UN to do just about anything would have to confront the institution's fundamental ineptness and, oh yeah, the enormous scandal of the Oil for Food debacle. The New York Times editorial page has been calling for the UN to run Iraq for months, and it's finally reached a point where even they have to deal with the scandal. But they are so committed to protecting the UN at all costs that their vision of what the scandal is and what it means for the future of the institution and its credibility is so distorted as to be virtually unrecognizable.
Hey, the news has to "fit" before they print it. More by following the link.
