NYTimes on yearlyKos

Ugh! Kit Seelye at the NYTimes has a short, snarky, derisive article on the Democratic presidential candidates appearing at yearlyKos.

While they are all still coming for the main show, it turns out that Senator Clinton is not attending the break-out session. Her campaign says it told the Kos organizers a week ago that she would not be attending the individual session, but the organizers did not announce it until tonight, at the opening dinner. The announcement drew big boos from the audience. But hey, this is a tough crowd. Later in the evening, they booed Mother Teresa.

I ask you, is that really journalism, or is that thinly veiled op-ed worthy sarcasm? It's so high minded of Ms. Seelye to paint the attendants as crazies who are mean enough to boo a saint.

Anyhoo, the Clinton controversy of not attending the open Q&A seems to have been resolved. Smart of the campaign to do that too.
