INTELLIGENT DESIGN - NYT fair and balanced?

Lynn Vincent of WorldMagBlog makes a "right on" observation about the editorial policies of the NYT (New York Times).

The paper decided to publish two articles relating to evolution in the same issue: one by Lehigh University scientist Michael Behe, supporting ID from a scientific perspective; the other by the National Science Teachers Association lamenting "an epidemic of the suppression of the teaching of evolution," an emotional opinion piece by an activist special interest group.

Vincent says, "(It is) interesting that Mr. Behe's piece appears in the NYT opinion section, while that opinion appears in the science section."

The nation's newspaper of record appears to have protected the public record once again. Thank God for blogs and Google.
