The NY Times misremembers the sinking of the Cheonan

Today's New York Times offers the reader a simple view of history:
Beijing has still not condemned North Korea for torpedoing a South Korean warship.
Of course the Times conveniently "forgets" that the evidence that such a thing happened is, to say the least, disputed. Perhaps they did so because the only evidence I can find searching the Times's archives that they have even mentioned that fact was in a one-paragraph "brief" from the AP, one paragraph which refutes every significant piece of "evidence" offered that North Korea was responsible.

But, no matter. To the Times, it's sufficient simply to repeat the charge as if it's a proven, undisputed case. Because it's a safe bet that no one in the "establishment" - no one in the corporate media or in the Democratic or Republican parties - will challenge them.
