The reporting on this story is atrocious. It’s all updates with no background. So, I’m wondering not only what happened in Jena, but why is the press reporting it this way?
Sullivan links to Megan McCardle’s summary of the Wikipedia article on the subject, which she understands is “pretty authoritative.” It’s pathetic that we’re reduced to going to Wikipedia because the mainstream news of a current event is too skimpy.
Indeed. But here’s much more on the case from Patterico.
UPDATE: Further thoughs here.
