Lobbyist for the DNC?

Quest to get a Republican to fight DeLay may have crossed a line: "On March 24, former Congressman Bob Livingston was sent an e-mail by a New York Times editorial page staffer suggesting he write an op-ed essay. Would Livingston, who in 1998 gave up certain elevation to be House speaker because of a sexual affair, write about how Majority Leader Tom DeLay should now act under fire? In a subsequent conversation, it was made clear the Times wanted the prominent Republican to say DeLay should step aside for the good of the party."
It is so boring and time-consuming to go out to learn the news;  why bother when you can gin it up?  Liberal rags like the NYT, when they aren't actually printing lies and slander, try to make the news.  If there is no Republican that is opposing Tom Delay, then they try to manufacture one.  The Times needs to register as a political lobbyist for the Democratic National Committee.  Do campaign spending limits apply?
