NYT = SCUMBAG
Not sure if you caught this item out of Slate.
I think Slate misses the real slander here. It's not that the NYT used a "dirty" word. It's that it chose #43 to use the word. Someone was making a political statement of what they think of our 43rd President. The guy making up the puzzle used the word "scumbag" on purpose.
Make no mistake.
The New York Times continues to throw off even the slightest pretense of impartiality.
