Ah, that liberal media.

Folks on the right have been condemning the U.N. for months on charges that the Iraq oil-for-food program of the 1990s was corrupt -- charges based on evidence supposedly in the possession of Ahmed Chalabi, which he won't let anyone else see. What you may not know is that there has been an official inquiry into these charges -- which found a little low-level corruption, but nothing on the scale that the folks on the right have alleged.

The response of the New York Times, queen of the "liberal media"? An editorial denouncing the report for failing to disclose massive corruption. When right-wing shills have given you the truth, why bother with the facts?
