NYT editors on NSA scandal: ‘The administration has now lost all credibility’

Yep, this one’s gonna leave a mark.

The New York Times, normally a reliable ally of the current administration, is suddenly not so keen on The One anymore. In response to the news about the NSA surveillance scandal, the Times’ editorial board penned a scathing indictment of the Obama administration’s “overreaching” and willingness to abuse executive power at the expense of citizens’ freedom:

Welcome to reality, New York Times:

The administration has now lost all credibility. Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it.

Will this be the straw that breaks the Times’ back?

And what happens next?

Heads exploding everywhere!

Quick! Somebody do a wellness check on Martin Bashir!

Uh-oh.
