Keller Backs Friedman

The former top NYT editor Bill Keller continues his embarrassing run as a weekly pundit, fully endorsing the laughable column by colleague Thomas Friedman last week, which we highlighted at the time.  You remember the Friedman opus--quoting at length TV's David Simon rant (which Simon had partly retracted already).   Keller cites it's popularlty at the site as evidence that Friedman's view was popular--rather than the thousands who visited to laugh and mock.   Keller does go on to raise demands for a "well-regulated" surveillance state--but a surveillance state nonetheless.  Of course, it's good that he's not turning a blind eye--but from his Friedman endorsement, you know where his real sympathies lie.  With the state.
