Ironic line of the day (from CJR--who else?)

Paul McLeary of Columbia Journalism Review's CJR Daily in a post entitled "What You Don't Know Can Hurt You":
The sin of omission is a cardinal one among reporters....
The quote is in reference to a New York Times article which McLeary thinks leans too far right. Stephen Spruiell of National Review's Media Blog takes issue with McLeary's analysis, which Spruiell thinks leans too far left.

Spruiell continues by pointing out the irony of McLeary's position:
And while we’re on the subject of “spins of omission,” CJR doesn’t have much room to talk, given the glaring sin of omission at CJR that blogger David M uncovered last week.
