Oh fer the love of gawd.  After Media Matters busted the Newspaper of Record on their complete inability to use the Google to check their contention that Joe Lieberman had never uttered the words "stay the course " (Media Matters offered up five, count 'em five, times that Tortureman had used the official BushCo. language), they printed a "correction."  To wit:

The White House said Monday that President Bush was no longer using the phrase “stay the course” when speaking about the war.

That is such a whitewash of what actually happened as to be obscene.  George Bush went on Stephanopoulos and said "we've never been 'stay the course,' George!" The next day Tony Snow went out and told another whopper for cover, saying that Bush had only used the phrase "eight times," as if it hadn't been the official languaging of the Administration's Iraq policy for years.  It was a shocking bit of revisionism that Lieberman — and his apologists at the NYT — were obviously on board with when the original coat of whitewash was applied to Lieberman's record.  His success on November 7, as Matt Stoller has pointed out, depends on his ability to run as an anti-war candidate.  A remarkable sleight-of-hand that will take a great deal of effort and cooperation to pull off.

Because this, let's get real, is the true Joe Lieberman.  From a speech on February 8, 2003:

In fact, five years ago, after Saddam ejected the UN inspectors, John McCain and I gave up on containment and introduced the Iraqi Liberation Act, which, when it became law, made a change of regime in Baghdad official US policy. You might therefore say that, when it comes to Iraq, President Bush is just enforcing the McCain-Lieberman policy.

The only reason Joe Lieberman ever "criticized" George Bush  was to run against him — as an even bigger hawk, though Joe likes to imply otherwise (I guess their "exhaustive" search didn't turn that up, either).  Their reporting on this race has always failed to wrestle with Joe's history when it doesn't conveniently fit into his election narrative, and their willingness to eagerly tell abject lies as both Lieberman and his BFF George Bush try and re-write history is painful to watch. 

Would someone like to explain to me what distinguishes the Times reporters covering this race from their spiritual sister blog, Atlas Shrugs?  Watch the YouTube above of Pam explaining what the word "complicated" means.  Really, they must be working off the same script.
