    NYT: The danger for all of the candidates is that they will ultimately be seen as phony, given that voters have plenty of experience sniffing out the truth about politicians.

    Mitt Romney sought to connect with broad cross sections of Americans during his presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012, but many voters came to see him as a wealthy man with policy ideas aimed at helping people like himself.

    The most fair and balanced news source in America. The paper has had some issues with shoddy journalists, but its solid reputation towers above all others in comparison.

    Internationally, it's the paper of record for the U.S. (Republicans hate that). It's time to get over it, soutbeach1500.

    Not necessarily. It is one of the best papers in the US but calling it a paper of record for the U.S., that is an unrealistic stretch. The New York Times is a bit too leftist. The Chicago Tribune is more fair and unbiased, it is middle of the road which I prefer.

    According to most peer reviewed literature, the NYTs is the paper of record internationally for USA coverage.

    Just like Chicago style is THE most widely used style of citation. Sure the MLA tries to compete, but the literature is clear that most scholars have settled on Chicago.

    Don't like it? Tough. You're not an island unto yourself, but a member of a community that has reached a consensus. Use your own citation style if you'd like, but good luck getting published.

    Still quibbling over the NYT's own recent recognition that it's no longer the paper of record? "Peer reviewed?" In what discipline(s)? And what does Chicago v. MLA style have to do w/ this? Get it back on topic, folks.

    All disciplines, check out JSTOR.

    And the NYT's cannot decide whether it is or is not the paper of record, the community (nation, world, etc.) defines that and it has spoken.

    And the citation styles are relevant examples because nothing "makes" Chicago the citation style of record. It simply is. The example was perfect and you're either being obtuse or facetious in your alleged failure to see the connection.
