If you have a few moments, or months, you ought to check out the comments at www.nytimes.com on that New York Times bombshell on McCain...now up to 2100 and counting....One sidelight: at his press conference, McCain at first denied speaking to the Times directly about the story in advance, then when reminded that the paper had said he talked to its top editor, Bill Keller, he apologized, confirmed that happened, but said he did not try to "dissuade" Keller, adding, "I know The New York Times."
Not sure if this means anything but on Wall Street, the Times Co. (NYSE: NYT) ended the day at $19.69, down $1.38 or 6.55%.
