"Liberal" bias in The New York Times

Another "outrageous" example of the "liberal" bias in the mainstream media can be found in this New York Times headline: "Not Guilty Verdicts in Florida Terror Trial Are Setback for U.S.". Atrios had this to say:
No. They may be setbacks for individuals in the Justice Department, or for the members of the Bush administration (I'll except the shorthand "Justice Department" or "Bush administration.) They aren't setbacks for the "U.S." unless you either define the "U.S." as the "executive branch" or if the headline writer thinks s/he knows something the jury in the cases didn't.
This type of editorializing in headlines demonstates bias in media coverage — but this bias perpetuates the nationalistic propaganda propagated by this administration, hardly representative of the "liberal" point of view.
