The LA Times's strange notion of journalistic ethics

The National Review's Andrew McCarthy demolishes the LA Times's claim of journalistic ethics in the case of the videotape of Obama's attendance at a going away party for a PLO mouthpiece. His conclusion is especially damning:

[...]the mainstream media want the right to mislead you, to provide you with a woefully incomplete record, but to deprive you of clarifying information even when it is readily at their disposal. You just have to take their word for what happened, and never you mind the details.

Are you comfortable taking the Obamedia’s word for it? Or do you think you ought to have a look at what Los Angeles Times has unilaterally decided not to show you?
