Yesterday, in the biggest daily edition of the most influential newspaper in America, highly-paid and closely watched New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd decided to weigh in on Chris Dodd.

Or would she take an opposite tack, perhaps by teasing out an unseen thread in this web of connections in the corporate-political-cultural-entertainment-propaganda complex? [Gawker]
