Another Mystery for NYT Readers
In what is becoming a pattern, the NYT is deliberately keeping bad news from its readers re-creating the old Soviet-stle airbrushed news. Doug Ross reports on the paper's (non)coverage of the ACORN scandal:
With word that the Census Bureau cuts its ties to ACORN, The New York Times was finally forced to report on events resulting from a stunning expose involving illegal immigration, child prostitution, smuggling rings and tax fraud. But, with its typical disdain for readers, the Times failed to report why the Census Bureau had fired ACORN.
I suppose if the paper's readers should ever read a real news report they'll feel like Rip Van Winkle.
