Shorter NY Times editorial: a pox on all them

Slightly longer but still shorter NY Times editorial:

1. Bush had nothing to offer in his speech but fear itself.

2. McCain has been flailing and here are several examples that show it.

3. Obama has been better. He's been clearer. He recognizes the real problems. But he hasn't actually fixed anything yet, so he's just as bad as the other two.

Seriously, 90% of this editorial is about how bad Bush and McCain have been. Only one paragraph is given to a "damn with faint praise" criticism of Obama. Therefore, they are all equally bad.

Balance is such an overrated concept in journalism.
