NYT gets scammed

The New York Times, hot on the heels of the scandal at Page Six, got scammed by a PR line, and so far has not corrected itself. Mickey Kaus catches the Times red—handed, buying into a presposterous story concocted to make Ron Burkle, premier donor to Bill Clinton and alleged victim of a Page Six part—timer, look good. As Mickey notes, a Lexis—Nexis check would have sufficed. Too good to check.
