The Next Generation?

In his blog reading, Kurtz discovered a New York Times editor’s note we can’t believe hasn’t gotten more laughs:

An article on May 6 described a demonstration at Princeton University against the proposal by Bill Frist, the Senate majority leader and a Princeton graduate and board member, to bar filibusters on judicial nominees. The writer, a freelance contributor who is a Princeton student, did not disclose to The Times that before she was assigned the article, she had participated in the demonstration.

At least she didn’t make up anything in the article — better to be biased than lie, right? But then again, WHAT was she thinking???
