Big news versus little news about Kentucky's governor

When Republican Kentucky governor Fletcher was indicted on misdemeanor charges in June, it was a front—page, above the fold news story for the New York Times. But the charges were just dismissed, and the Times relegates the news to a brief item on page A 12.

A high—tech lynching by the New York Times. Meanwhile, so far as I can tell, they have completely ignored the widespread Democratic scandal in Illinois about patronage and pay for play at the Mayoral and Governor level (both Democrats).
