This from the Patriot Post. Naturally, it'll get zero play in the MSM.

New York Times Gets the 'Spike' Award
"In October 2008, The New York Times happened upon a story involving the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Project Vote and the Obama campaign. Heather Heidelbaugh, who represents the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee in its lawsuit, testified to the House Judiciary subcommittee, however, that the Times spiked the story just when it got interesting. A former ACORN worker served as a "confidential informant" for the Times for several months -- at least until she revealed that the Obama campaign had sent its donor list to ACORN. The worker claims that the campaign asked ACORN to "reach out to the maxed-out donors and solicit donations from them for Get Out the Vote efforts to be run by ACORN." The Times reporter informed her that her editors wished to kill the story because it was "a game changer." Funny, that didn't stop the Times from publishing a flimsy and fact-challenged piece alleging that John McCain had a long-ago relationship with a female lobbyist. As Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of Political Science at Grove City College, observed, "The New York Times is a liberal newspaper. It is dedicated to furthering the Democratic Party. People think The New York Times is an objective news source and it is not." And other than a few conservative blogs, this story has been similarly spiked by the Leftmedia."

If I haven't said it enough ... the reason the newspaper industry in standing on line at the wake is because they stopped reporting news during the election campaign, and turned into Entertainment Weekly or some-such. And — surprise — everyone noticed.

Good riddance on paying for yesterday's news ... although my birdcage will miss them.
