Killing A Story:
How It's Done

by John Hinderaker - May 17th, 2009 - Powerline

In today's New York Times, Public Editor Clark Hoyt reveals the result of his investigation into the charge that the paper killed a story during the 2008 Presidential campaign in order to help Barack Obama. Hoyt concludes that the claim is "nonsense."
On March 17, a Republican lawyer, quoting a confidential source for a Times reporter, testified to Congress that the newspaper killed a story last fall because it would have been "a game-changer" in the presidential election.

The charge, amplified by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News in April and reverberating around the conservative blogosphere, is about the most damning allegation that can be made against a news organization. If true, it would mean that Times editors, whose job is to report the facts without fear or favor, were so lacking in integrity that they withheld an important story in order to influence the election.

But the facts as related by Hoyt don't rebut the charge; they support it.

So what? That Obama and his people committed wholesale election fraud in the last election is not going to change the outcome for our nation at this point. It is too late for that to matter. What does matter is that Obama managed to get included in the simulus bill and the current budget $8 billion dollars to fund ACORN. By the time the next election comes around, ACORN will be able to assure a permanent Democrat majority based on election fraud. Obama will win no matter what the American people want. I keep telling people, forget what Obama says. Watch what he does. Massive funding for a corrupt organization, now that is a "game-changer"!
