Bias Alert: NY Times under fire for ‘scoop’ on Rubio traffic citations

The New York Times was being accused of a hit-and-run Friday after swerving at Sen. Marco Rubio with a detailed exposé of sorts — on his family’s traffic violations.

The nearly 700-word article, accompanied by 10 pages of court documents, detailed how the Republican presidential candidate and his wife have been cited 17 times for traffic infractions — everything from speeding to careless driving.

“Senator Marco Rubio has been in a hurry to get to the top,” the newspaper quipped. “… But politics is not the only area where Mr. Rubio, a Republican from Florida, has an affinity for the fast track.”

Beneath the eye-catching headline and opening, however, the Times clarified that most of those tickets were for his wife Jeanette. The records dating back to 1997 showed Rubio himself only got four.

That’s roughly one traffic ticket every five years.

What a scofflaw?
