Granted, the video taping of meetings with low level ACORN staff members is amateurish, but at least they were on it. Here is Professor Althouse about the NYT:
And what's with "Some stories, lacking facts, never catch fire." Isn't the Times in the business of looking for facts? A great newspaper should be setting the "fires" — breaking stories — not covering stories that other people have broken, which is what the Times was left doing with ACORN.The interesting thing is that ACORN has sued the amateur photo-journalists. As someone noted, that opens ACORN to discovery.
At any rate, a great blog post by Professor Althouse.
