A: When you're a neocon architect of a war the NYT, and the corporate world, supports.
I've just read the latest NYT article over the Paul Wolfowitz nepotism scandal at the World Bank. This article continues a pattern of willful deception and obfuscation pervading not just the Times but the AP and Reuters as well. Wolfowitz' mistress is referred to as his "companion" (AP uses the sweet term "girlfriend"). And, not once does the Times feel the need to inform readers Wolfowitz is not only still married but is a serial adulterer, facts the rest of the world knows well.
In fact, Wolfowitz' philandering caused his wife, Mrs. Clare Wolfowitz, to write a letter to President Bush suggesting her husband was a national security risk due to his womanizing.
The same US media once preoccupied with Monica Lewinsky is now intent on covering for Wolfowitz.
