It’s a mystery that media sources like the New York Time would for the first time in history stear away from a story that would be toxic to an incumbent president at just the moment when the incumbent president is one that the New York Times supports.
You can cut the meta-irony of the New York Times explaining its obvious bias as not being obvious bias with a butter knife.

Reminds me of that great line from Evelyn Waugh’s A Handful of Dust: “Everybody agreed that it was nobody’s fault.”
Whose fault might it be if a Republican were in the White House?
