New York Time's public editor: fellow staffers "share a kind of political and cultural progressivism" that "virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times."

The scary thing is that the staff of the New York Times don't see the overwhelming bias that invades their stories.

In his final column for the Times, Brisbane wrote that his fellow staffers "share a kind of political and cultural progressivism" that "virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times." Brisbane even argued that Times reporters covered some liberal causes, like gay marriage and the Occupy movement, "more like causes than news subjects." . . . 
But Times executive editor Jill Abramson says she disagrees with Brisbane's "sweeping conclusions." 
"In our newsroom we are always conscious that the way we view an issue in New York is not necessarily the way it is viewed in the rest of the country or world. I disagree with Mr. Brisbane's sweeping conclusions," Abramson told POLITICO Saturday night. . . .
