Blawgletter has noticed that The New York Times reporters inject opinion into their news articles.  An article today, for example, interprets poll results as showing that young people support "liberal ideas" more than their elders — despite the fact that the poll reflects that most kids (unlike older folks) believe the war in Iraq will turn out okay.

We don’t blame the NYT for its views.  But we do wonder why its editors allow so much journalistic mingling of facts with the writers’ point of view.  Step back into the light, we plead.  A lot more Christopher Wren and Alan Cowell and far less Adam Nagourney.

At least the WSJ reports facts — and puts its zany opinions on the op-ed pages.
