Time thinks about it...

...and then gets it wrong again. After posting a photo in its online version of the Coulter article incorrectly identifying Republican satirists as earnest lefties, Time curiously includes a cropped version of the same photo in the magazine. Skippy writes: "your cropping of the picture leads me to believe the online mistake was probably a little more purposeful than we thought...[and] is unacceptable for a national news organization. while not actually making up the news on the level of a stephen glass, you are deliberately misleading the public to the exact opposite conclusion about the picture than the reality thereof warrants." (Skippy the Bush Kangaroo)
