|Man Without Qualities|

Various liberal and Democratic organs and representatives have been shouting that the President was (and is) a "liar" with respect to his most recent tax cut and the question of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The New York Times addresses the matter today.
Queery: Would this conclusion ha ve been allowed to appear in an important New York Times news article while Howell Raines was in charge:
In fact, a review of the president's public statements found little that could lead to a conclusion that the president actually lied on either subject.
The Times article as a whole, of course, is still pretentious and tendentious. But can any aware person doubt that the Rainseian blue pencil would have struck out the above sentence?
