Critics Question Timing of Surveillance Story - Los Angeles Times
The New York Times first debated publishing a story about secret eavesdropping on Americans as early as last fall, before the 2004 presidential election.

But the newspaper held the story for more than a year and only revealed the secret wiretaps last Friday, when it became apparent a book by one of its reporters was about to break the news, according to journalists familiar with the paper's internal discussions.

And so the Times manages to simultaneously confirm the worst suspicions of the left (that they threw the election) and the right (that they went with the story now for craven reasons unrelated to the internal merits of the story).

I guess that means you are doing a heckuva job, eh, Pinch?
