I hope this is a joke. The New York Times Public Editor wonders aloud if their journalists should be reporting the truth.

Seriously?

Maybe he thinks the NYT should be more like a truth noodge? 

FJP: Ooph.

Is that the prevailing view? And if so, how can The Times do this in a way that is objective and fair? Is it possible to be objective and fair when the reporter is choosing to correct one fact over another? Are there other problems that The Times would face that I haven’t mentioned here?
