JOE DAVIS WRITES THAT THE SATURDAY NEW YORK TIMES IS ALWAYS INTERESTING:
I used to particularly like the sat edition back in the old ‘paper’ days…they would often bury stories they really didn’t want to promote but felt they had to acknowledge there…so I was really interested to see how they would play yesterdays drama in congress which is hard to do without making the DEM leadership look bad but I can’t find anything on the web site…
Now they bury stories that they don’t want to promote in the Times political blogs! This shortstops the critics in the blogosphere, without exposing the Times’ subscribers to uncomfortable information.
UPDATE: Reader Christopher Fountain sends this story and writes: “It was on the last page of the 1st section in today’s paper version and a search online turned it up there,too. Notice the reporter doesn’t say who turned off the lights, cameras and mikes. For all Times readers would know, it was some kind of natural phenomenon.”
Huh. I searched “Pelosi” on the site and found the blog entry but not this story.
