Bias vs. Lies Redux

This time from Malkin's blog, an emailer writes in regarding a complaint he made to the Times about Paul Krugman's patently false assertion that there hadn't been successful prosecutions of terrorists:
They blew me off. Said that was just his opinion, I need to show facts that prove him wrong, bunch of BS like that. Told me the old fall back, "If you don't like it, don't read it."
So now it seems the NYT's standard M.O. is that it's ok to lie as long as it's your "opinion."

My, my. This is becoming quite a frequent talking point these days, isn't it?
