NYT: Economic But-Heads

The liberals' favorite conjunction -- but, put to such good use in condemning terrorism but simultaneously apologizing for it -- finds itself working double-duty to undermine the powerfully favorable news on the economy the Times is sadly required to report.


Growth Accelerated in March, But a Slowdown Is Expected

And that's just the headline. "But," announced as an above-the-title star of the movie in the credit sequence, gives a powerful and moving performance throughout the piece, appearing in virtually every scene.

Related And Must-Read: Slapstick Politics looks at a different NYT piece -- loading all the bad stuf in the first paragraph, the one everyone reads, while only mentioning good stuff in the later paragraphs fewer people read -- and re-writes it the right way, with the lede ("economy growing like gangbusters") in the strange position of actually being the first paragraph. The lede is actually the lead, in other words.

At least when someone besides the NYT attempts to write an economic story.
