Mediaite Guesses Correctly
Topic: NewsBusters

A Mediaite article by Michael Triplett examines the New York Times' coverage of gays and related issues, writing that while "few papers cover the LGBT community as extensively as the New York Times, but it is far from perfect"" and concluding, "And, of course, conservative critics of the paper will always contend there is a strong pro-gay bias, not matter the facts on the ground."

How right Triplett is. An Aug. 21 NewsBusters post by Tim Graham quotes from  Triplett's article, including the above statement. And what is Graham's headline onhis post? ''So-called Gay Mafia' Adding Bias to the New York Times."

Why, it's as if Triplett was reading Graham's mind. Or, more likely, he was so familiar with right-wing attacks on the Times that he knew that any non-negative coverage of gays is seen by the likes of the MRC as axiomatic of bias.
