The Times fully exposes itself as a political player

According to a Drudge story from yesterday,

NY TIMES FIGHTS BACK: PLANS FRONT SPLASH ON ROVE; REPORTER SITS IN JAIL Top editors of the NY TIMES made the decision Monday afternoon to turn up the heat on White House adviser Karl Rove. The TIMES is planning to lead Tuesday editions with growing calls for Rove's resignation, newsroom sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT, a powerplay in this summer's DC all-star game of high stakes finger pointing and intrigue.
This sounds like political action, not news reporting. Isn't it news when a newspaper abandons its reporting role and, in a purely partisan step, announces that it intends to bend all its energies to taking down a political figure?
