Times' Editorial Slugfest on Reid's Support for Scalia

Still smarting from Senate Minority Leader Reid's comments in support of a potential Chief Justice Scalia (see 12/07/04 post), the liberal New York Times railed against Scalia in a 12/10/04 editorial . The New York Times chastised Nino again for not recusing himself from Cheney v. U.S. Dist. Ct. D.C., __ U.S. __ (2004), because he went duck hunting with V.P. Cheney. The editorial goes on to say that "[t]here is far more than personal ethics to plumb in Justice Scalia's ultraextreme record . . . [and that Scalia has a] . . . retrogressive record on constitutional law."

On 12/12/04, the conservative Washington Times responded to the New York Times piece in an editorial titled "Liberal Bigotry, NYT Style." The Washington Times attacked the New York Times for using knee-jerk liberal terms to describe Nino's jurisprudence:
"how glibly they [the New York Times] describe their targets as an 'embarassment,' or 'retrogressive' or 'ultraextreme' without providing any evidence to substantiate their attacks. Their attitude is one of supreme arrogance: Mr. Reid and the NYT are liberals, they are smarter than the rest of us, they are morally superior to the rest of us, and they don't have to lower themselves to explain why conservatives are inferior and backward.
