David Stout: You are a horrible journalist.

David Stout, a journalist for the New York Times has written this article: Bush Seats Judicial Nominee That Senate Democrats Blocked

This statement is flat out disgusting in its ommission and mischaracterization of the facts:

"Mr. Pryor is known for, among other things, defending the right of high school athletes to pray 'spontaneously' and for his initial support of an Alabama state judge who posted the Ten Commandments in his courtroom and erected a monument engraved with the Commandments in the Supreme Court rotunda."

Gee. that's curious. I thought Bill Pryor was known for his youth at the time of his confirmation, his highly contentious confirmation battle, and his actions that eventuallyremoved Roy Moore and the Ten Commandments from their respective offices.

The old gray lady, she sure does have some issues. By the way, this ridiculous statement did not come from an editorial, but a news article. The crazy thing is that the word "initial" was added after the article was initially published in order to correct it. That was the only problem the editors found with the sentence. The lack of the word initial.

It is really beyond words!

By the way in case you were curious:

"The Times welcomes comments and suggestions, as well as information about errors that call for correction. Messages may be e-mailed to nytnews@nytimes.com or left at this toll-free number: 1-888-NYT-NEWS (1-888-698-6397). For comments on an editorial: letters@nytimes.com (by fax, 212-556-3622). For newspaper delivery questions: 1-800-NYTIMES (1-800-698-4637)."

Remember the author of the article is David Stout.
