What are the rules?

How come the National Review Online's Media Blog can quote long passages of NYT's op-ed columnists? I'm not seeing anyone else doing it. Spruiell quotes John Tierney on journalism bias.
The problem isn't so much the stories that appear as the ones that no one thinks to do. Journalists naturally tend to pursue questions that interest them. So when you have a press corps that's heavily Democratic — more than 80 percent, according to some surveys of Washington journalists — they tend to do stories that reflect Democrats' interests.
Very true, very true.
