P-I's distasteful bias

Stefan Sharansky rightly takes the Seattle Post-Intelligencer to task in this post, for an odious editorial that equates Rachel Corrie with Jessica Lynch, and dismisses the conclusions of the Israeli investigation because it clashes with the P-I's decidedly anti-Israeli worldview.

Stefan has also provided a list of links to other bloggers who have posted on the subject. I don't think there is much more I can say, except that it is tripe such as this that ensures that I never buy the P-I; I get the Seattle Times or I do without.

May we assume, then, that you're looking forward to the dissolution of the Joint Operating Agreement between the Times and the P-I, which presumably will mean the death of the P-I?

"Looking forward" is a bit too strong. Perhaps "not at all concerned" is a better choice. I simply ignore the PI most of the time, because they are not worth the effort to actively despise. They are neither influential nor important. Their editors will simply end up elsewhere.
