But the only editorials he reads are in the Washington Times

The publisher of Editor&Publisher is calling on newspaper editorial pages to call on the president to get out of Iraq:

It's time for newspapers, many of which helped get us into this war, to consider using their editorial pages as platforms to help get us out of it. So far, few have done much more than wring their hands, or simply criticize the conduct of the war, or the lack of body armor for our troops. Not many months ago, in fact, some papers, including The New York Times, were calling for more U.S. troops for Iraq. Now it's literally do-or-die time.

If it is literally do-or-die time, it's equally imperative that all those who write about those who write about the media call on the media writers to call on newspaper editorial pages to call on the president get us out of Iraq.
