The Old Gray Lady: Scooped!

As Greg Mitchell writes in Mediainfo:

"First, The Washington Post got scooped on naming Deep Throat. Now The New York Times is just about last to report on its own star reporter (who it has championed in numerous editorials) getting sprung from jail. Even E&P, following The Philadelphia Inquirer's scoop, beat the Times on it last night. What's up with that?"

Good point.

CJR also tries to untangle it. (Link via Romenesko)

Maybe if the NYtimes weren't so busy chargin' people for editorials on their $@$@# site they wouldn't be too busy enough to cover themselves.
