The New York Times–with the exception of some honorable reporters in the field (you know who you are)–never ceases to amaze one in the spectacularly biased writings of those back at headquarters. Here’s one that’s particularly remarkable, a real piece of advocacy in which the reporter does everything possible to justify flotilla ships trying to run the blockade of the Gaza Strip.
