NY Times Watch

From PowerLine:
Air America--or Air Scamerica, or Air Enron--is engulfed in scandal. It now appears clear that the far-left radio network obtained critical funding by misappropriating money earmarked for poor children and Alzheimer's victims from the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club, a nonprofit organization.
Oddly enough, the NY Times, which, according to Michelle Malkin, has printed 59 stories that mentioned Air America since March 2004. Thus far, they have not had a story about this scandal. In fact, the silence from the mainstream media, except for a few right of center sources, has been deafening. I guess if your friends are involved in a scandal, even if it involves taking money intended for needy people, it isn't newsworthy.

On the other hand, digging in the muck in order to find something to sling at Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, is a much better use of the NY Times' resources. The paper has an investigative reporter examining the adoption status of Roberts' children. Could this be worthy of a little scorn?
