NYT should rethink its editorial

Tyler (KETK) — There has been so much in the news to cover this past week. There is so much to say about the immigration deal currently going on, but I want to backtrack about something which happened a few days ago.
The New York Times, which now-a-days is not even fit for putting at the bottom of a bird cage, has just lost it's way. It's always been the liberal house organ, but now should be locked up for prostitution.
Bowe Bergdahl's Army mates, who were threatened by the Army while Bergdahl was walking Afghanistan with terrorists, to keep their mouths shut can finally talk. They are telling of Bergdahl's downright weirdness.
It is their opinion their fellow soldier is a deserter and that people were put in danger to try and find him. Reportedly, six people were killed looking for him.
The Times is not attacking them through an editorial which ran last week. It was called "The Rush to Demonize Sgt. Bergdahl." It basically tries to give the president cover for a very bad decision by saying this:
"Mr. Obama's opponents are now trying to create." Further, the fact he did walk away and get captured by the Taliban "suggests that the army unit's lack of security and discipline was as much to blame for [Bergdahl's] disappearance, given the sergeant's history." If Bergdahl "gave no indication of being a deserter," why would his unit be blamed for not keeping closer tabs on him?
Now, they are trying to make Bergdahls fellow soldiers look bad, the president look good and some would say this opened the door for Bergdahl to having some sort of a mental illness defense for his actions.
This is despicable.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
