From a New York Times article on the resignation of the schools chancellor in Washington, D.C., Michelle Rhee: "Replacing Ms. Rhee, who is Korean-American, with Ms. Henderson, who is black, is expected to ease racial tensions."

NYT on Natural Gas and Fracking
futureofcapitalism.com

The Independent Petroleum Association of America has a pretty good point-by-point takedown of the New York Times's piece over the weekend suggesting that the American natural gas industry is an Enron-style fraud. My favorite part of the IPAA critique is the light it shines on the Times's sources. From the Times:

"This kind of data is making it harder and harder to deny that the shale gas revolution is being oversold," said Art Berman, a Houston-based geologist who worked for two decades at Amoco and has been one of the most vocal skeptics of shale gas economics.

Richard L. Berke, the Times's national editor, defended the story: "we would not change a word."

Texas and Regulation
smartertimes.com

A front-page New York Times headline declares, "After Plant Explosion, Texas Remains Wary of Regulation."

Less wary of regulation, apparently, are the New York Times reporters and editors, who engage in a misleading use of statistics to try to advance their case for additional regulations (though the Times acknowledges somewhere in the middle of the article that "it is impossible to know whether tougher regulations would have prevented the disaster," and toward the end that the fertilizer plant that exploded "fell under the purview of at least seven state or federal regulatory agencies.")
