NY Times Public Editor Sides With Geraldo

BYRON CALAME, the public editor of the New York Times, has sided with Geraldo Rivera, in saying the paper should correct a story that claims he shoved Air Force rescuers out of the way in New Orleans to get in a shot of a woman being pulled from a flooded house.

This is the second time this month that Mr. Calame has beaten up the paper in his column. The first time, he asked (twice) for a factual correction from Paul Krugman, a columnist at the paper, and was blown off both times.

The fact that the Public Editor would call out Krugman has annoyed liberal bloggers, like "The DailyKos" to no end, because Paul is one of their heros.

I don't know how long Mr. Calame will last at the Times, but I hope it's awhile, he seems to not be run by ideology, and definitely doesn't seem to bend at the whim of the editorial board, something needed if the Times is going to become "America's Paper of Record" again, instead of the liberal rag that it's seen as by so many.
