The Times Gives Us a Modified, Limited Hangout
"Take a stroll down memory lane, back to this immortal dialogue from the Watergate tapes of a March 1973 meeting in the Oval Office:
"PRESIDENT: You think, you think we want to, want to go this route now? And the -- let it hang out, so to speak?
DEAN: Well, it's, it isn't really that --
HALDEMAN: It's a limited hang out.
DEAN: It's a limited hang out.
EHRLICHMAN: It's a modified limited hang out.
"Those words came to mind this morning as we digested the long-awaited and mammoth New York Times' mea culpa on the Judy Miller affair, to which the newspaper devotes more than two open pages.
"As we read along, five things leaped off the page at us."
