NYT and Schiavo

Money quote:
"The legal fight provoked a great national discussion, with polls showing most people did not believe politicians should be involved in personal issues of one family trying to decide whether a family member should be kept alive. But it also provoked a great outcry among an ad hoc coalition of Catholic and evangelical lobbyists, street organizers and legal advisers, some of whom demonstrated outside the hospice in recent days, and picketed outside the homes of Mr. Schiavo and Judge George W. Greer of Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court, who originally ordered the tube removed."

I fully expect to see the NYT run a more complete coverage that includes the timing of Michael Schiavo's recollection of his wife's wish to die - after the malpractice case came in much lower than he expected - and that advocates for the disabled were also on Teri Schiavo's side - something the secularist MSM consistently ignored.

The rewriting history will very soon begin to include the above details.

One thing I will not feel is shame for my country. I am embarassed there are fellow Americans who do not feel shame for taking the side of a de facto bigamist though.
