The NYT is liberal?

Ace of Spades examines the Grey Lady’s attempt to cover her nakedness:

In part because the Times’s editorial page is clearly liberal, the news pages do need to make more effort not to seem monolithic.

WHAT!?! THE NEW YORK FREAKING TIMES just admitted that it is LIBERAL?!? But they told us they were journalistically trained to be objective and that any perception of liberal bias on the part of their elite commentators was merely because they were smarter, better educated, more caring people than those grunting sky-worshipping clods with dirty fingernails in flyover country!

I’m frightened! Hold me, Ralph!
