New York Times: A subtle Bias in titles

News of the Day

Here is a very subtle bias on behalf of the New York Times where it concerns the deaths of two famous economists this year.

New York Times headline April 30th, 2006

John Kenneth Galbraith, 97, Dies; Economist Held a Mirror to Society

New York Times deadline November 16th, 2006

Milton Friedman, Free Markets Theorist, Dies at 94

(Bolded emphasis, mine)

So, the Times gives leftist Galbraith the proper title of "economist", yet calls Friedman merely a "theorist". A very subtle way to transmit that Galbraith was "legitimate" in the New York Times' eyes, but Freidman but a dabbler and theory maker.
