NY Times Watch

How low can you go? The NY Times prints a human interest story about a member of a terrorist organization:
His family and friends traveled to a rainy checkpoint to greet him, pale and bearded in new black jeans and silvery running shoes, which he tried to protect from the mud.

His daughter, Hanin, 12, was in tears, burying her face in his waist; he lifted his son Basel, 5, a serious boy in a crew cut who stared around him. He hugged his wife, Fadia, brushing his lips along the embroidered brown scarf that covered her hair.

Mr. Barghouti, 39, an active member of Hamas, was released at 5:30 a.m. from Ketziot prison...
Don't forget; terrorists are people, too.
