NY Times forced to use rivals' reporting

William Tate
If the New York Times were, indeed, still the Gray Lady, she would be in therapy these days. The Times website  was forced on Tuesday to link to a story by their competition, the New York Post. A story that was two weeks old.

In a report on Republicans' response to Democrat efforts to humiliate South Carolina representative Joe Wilson, the Times provided numerous links to their, and other Big Media, articles piling onto Wilson. When forced to report on Republican charges of wrong-doing by Charles Rangel, a congressman from their own home market, the Times apparently went through their trove of hard-hitting articles about Democrats' wrong-doing and produced, well, this story on Rangel by their cross-town rivals.

Likewise, when forced to refer to investigations into allegations of potential violations by John Murtha (D-Pennsylvania), the Times went to the vault and produced this article... by the Chicago Sun-Times.

'All the news that's fit to print'? Then why do folks have to read about it elsewhere?
