1. Not shocking. Remember Niger yellowcake and

what's-her-name who went to jail rather than reveal her sources - which sources were giving her false pro-war information anyway?

IMHO, it's become a very Establishment mouthpiece, and just as a warring US has become SSDD in the US, the NYT treats war as inevitable.

On balance from a personal point of view, I trust people here on DU (and their sources) far more readily than most of the Establishmentarians who staff the NYT.
