Longtime reader of Biteme.me know that we aren’t big fans of The New York Times. The Times’ accuracy is vastly overrated, its readers are often too lazy to think for themselves, and there are no comics.
But sometimes The Gray Lady surprises.
A recent example is the devastating exposé of NY Governor Cuomo’s meddling with the ethics commission he appointed to investigate corruption in state government. In it, The Times laid out in great detail the governor’s lies, how he bullied the commission to make sure they stayed away from his contributors, and how he disbanded the commission as soon as he thought he could get away with it.
Kudos to The Times for telling this sordid tale.
