has taken a vigorous approach to contesting the 'fiction' that passes for
news at the New York Times Publishing Company. So, in a spirit of fair play,
we will allow Sulzberger, Friedman, Sontag, Jacoby and Safire adequate space
to issue any rebuttal to NileMedia.com articles. We call this very special
corner of our magazine 'Open Mike for the New York Times'.
We trust that the management and employees at the New York
Times will make use of this space. We suggest the following title "In defense
of the Archives at the New York Times". But that is merely a suggestion,
so come on, step up to the mike ....we can always use a good laugh at NileMedia.com.
