MSM Ahead of Curve on V.P. Debate

Did you know that NYTimes.com streamed live video of last night’s debate, right on the top of its home page? There was a full-screen option, too. Pret­ty cool stuff – even Gawk­er was impressed.

UPDATE: Aw Hell no. Every­one spoke too soon… Libe­skind Design Cho­sen for Rebuild­ing at Ground Zero (NY Times)
