Leftist Media Bias of the Day

What qualifies as a "radical" policy at the New York Times? Fiscal responsibility:
School officials across New Jersey said on Wednesday that they would most likely have to lay off hundreds of teachers, increase class sizes, eliminate sports teams and Advanced Placement classes, cut kindergarten hours and take other radical steps to reduce spending after 58 percent of districts' budgets were rejected by voters on Tuesday, the most in at least 35 years.

Residents went to the polls in record numbers for the normally low-profile school-budget elections, and rejected 316 of the 541 budgets on the ballot. They were angered by higher property taxes that were sought to make up for unusually large state aid reductions proposed by Gov. Christopher J. Christie, along with resentment toward teachers' unions for not agreeing to wage freezes or concessions.
What won't the Times spin to favor unions and fight popular sovereignty?

"Asteroid strike destroys New York, resulting tsunami levels most of American and European Atlantic seaboard... Americans learn unions stand alone protecting them from devastation and chaos".

A: Not much.
