    Ms. Painton:

     Let me see if I've got my facts straight...

     Joe Klein reported that Markos Moulitsas Zuniga responded to Senator Barack Obama's "keep the President on a shorter leash" comment by indicating that Obama "just surrendered to" Bush.  However, Zuniga's comment was made prior to Obama's which indicates that Klein's reporting was sloppy and misleading to say the least.  Later, Klein indicated his reporting was "chronologically incorrect".

     Your dismissive 5/10/07 response to Mr. Zuniga indicates that "after reviewing the facts" you "don't believe Joe's column was incorrect."

     Of which skill do you lack: journalistic integrity or the ability to read a calendar?

     However irrelevant you deem factual information to be, it should at least enter into your editorial process.  What a disgrace.  

     Considering your dwindling circulation I would think you'd treat bloggers with less contempt and condescension.  After all, many of us used to be your subscribers.
