The Times Picayune is Still a Corporate Rag With a Blatantly Partisan Washington Bureau

The Bush administration on Tuesday named Donald E. Powell, the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission and a former Texas banker with long ties to President Bush, to coordinate the federal role in rebuilding the parts of the Gulf Coast devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita....

... In the 1990's, as governor of Texas, Mr. Bush named Mr. Powell to be chairman of the Board of Regents at Texas A&M University. Mr. Powell was one of Mr. Bush's leading fund-raisers in the 2000 presidential campaign.

... he has no direct experience overseeing large-scale rebuilding efforts of the sort being undertaken by officials in Louisiana and Mississippi

From yesterday's New York Times via the always interesting No More Mister Nice Blog

Scroll down and read the post titled Hey, I Nominated One Non-Crony, then read this fluff piece from the Washington Bureau of the always timid T/P .

Now the Washington Bureau has this piece in today's paper. I'm sure it took no effort at all to write an entire article about Jack Abramoff without once mentioning Tom Delay, Grover Norquist or The Republican Party .

Yeah Right. Coming soon: Don't Give Them that Pulitzer Yet, Lindsay.
