NYT Lies, Calame Dies (figuratively speaking)

Michelle Malkin has a scathing column up about the lies that the New York Times have been writing. And their response to the Reader Ombudsman's calling them on the carpet for it. Specifically a story by Jack Hitt (cached reference that quotes the story.) about Abortion in El Salvador which was completely false. The story has been since pulled. It referenced the case of a woman named Carmen Climaco, who Hitt claimed was serving a 30 year sentence for having an abortion. But the fact of the matter was that the woman had a live full term birth and then choked the baby to death. She is not serving time for an abortion, she is serving time for murder. For many of us, the difference between abortion and infanticide is moot and I wholeheartedly agree with that stance. To add insult to injury, Hitt used a translator that had worked for IPAS, which just happens to make vacuum aspirators for abortions. However, Calame appears to be taking the fall for this call out as well as the one for the (belated) admission that the NYT committed treason by revealing the SWIFT banking intelligence program.
