Patterico's take on the LAT

Right blogger Patterico's fourth annual review of a year in the life of the Los Angeles Times is up. It has become kind of a yearly event for the conservative side of the blogosphere and usually earns him a significant jolt in Internet traffic.

This yearís installment covers a number of topics, including the Michael Hiltzik sock-puppetry controversy; the alleged Ramadi airstrike; the paperís decision to reveal the Swift counterterror program; the firing of the paperís editor and publisher; the Iraq war and the war on terror; the paperís shilling for Democrats during the 2006 election; and my decision to cancel the paper ó among many others.

This post summarizes an entire yearís worth of work documenting omissions, distortions, and misrepresentations by this newspaper. I have made an effort to document my arguments that this paper is a regular practitioner of liberal bias. As with my previous posts, the proof is voluminous. As a consequence, donít feel that you need to read the entire post in one sitting.

I'll take him up on that offer. It doesn't seem to be as long as last year's though.
