The New York Times Answers the Great Unwashed

Forgive me, I know this is pretty elementary stuff — but it's the kind of elementary context that sometimes gets lost in the heat of strong disagreements.
--Bill Keller, New York Times Editor

The above quote is the Time's condescending response to outraged Americans that yet another state secret is given away on their front page. The Great Unwashed, that would be you and me and anyone not living on the Coastess with the Mostess.

Oy vey. They are arrogant and ignorant. Commoners just don't understand and know all the things his eminance understands and knows. How could we? Simple bloggers and citizens and soldiers, not sophisticated and worldly wise and tres important like Mr. Keller. Blech.

Glenn Reynolds gets uncharacteristically exercised.

Austin Bay responds.

Hugh Hewitt breaks it down for the New York Times.
