New York Times Death Spiral Watch

Outsourced to Matthew Yglesias:

Fair and Balanced: Sweet Iraq panel from the NYT. It's got Richard Perle and Danielle Pletka and Frederick Kagan and Paul Bremer. That's four out of the nine slots! Plus you've got Ken Pollack, and what Spencer Ackerman describes as "non-liberal members of the reality-based community like Paul Eaton and Anthony Cordesman and Nate Fick." Representing American liberalism in even the liberal New York Times is Anne-Marie Slaughter all by her lonesome -- can't let too many hippies congregate on one op-ed page.

Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?

Nine years and counting before the end, unless the New York Times changes course. Nine years.
