NYT to apologize to soldier's family

Who's apologizing now?

The NYT to this Texas family for showing photos of his dying son.

WASHINGTON — The New York Times will express regret for hurting the feelings of the family of a Texas soldier after publishing a photograph and a video showing him as he lay dying in Baghdad. The letter is part of an agreement reached Wednesday between the Army and the Times to resolve a controversy about the use of images of Staff Sgt. Hector Leija without his consent.

What idiots the papers are these days. They're literally DYING because of irrelevance and then they do stupid stuff like this. You might expect this from some of the warmonger GOP types and their media whores like Hannity or Malkin, but please, don't try to be "edgy" in such a clumsy way.
