New York Times Answers Critics

The editorial is here. I don't agree with the NYT that the Swift program had anything to do with the expanding power of the executive branch. I don't see how this program affected the civil liberties of Americans, either. They write that they are worried about "an extraordinarily powerful executive branch, exempt from the normal checks and balances of our system of government." Meanwhile, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has called the NYT traitors. Deroy Murdock over at Natonial Review opines here, saying "the New York Times should adopt a new slogan: “All the treason that’s fit to print.”
