The New York Times has had a history of reporting news that has tended towards a liberal bias, particularly in the context of good wars.  For example, reporters on the ground who witness all forms of death and destruction may think that the Iraq War is going poorly.  This is not always the case when one looks at the big picture.  Former Secretary Donald Rumsfled had a hard time convincing reporters that the war was going smoothly and that the United States was making progress because of this.  Rumsfled could also not disclose war strategy, the end result was confusion amongst the press corps who viewed Rumsfled (unjustifiable) as incompetent.  However, despite the many accomplishments in Iraq, reporters have always tended to report the sensationalized parts of Iraq, like the death toll or car bombings.
