07 Jan 2006 New York Times a Criminal Organization?
Posted at 02:09h in Blog
If top editors and reporters of the New York Times were to be convicted and sent to a federal penitentiary, as the lawyers writing at Power Line speculate could happen, would that make the New York Times a criminal organization?
Just want to make sure I use terms properly, that’s all.
(Well, maybe that and thinking it would be fun to take a page from the Investigative Reporters’ Handbook and speculate that an institution is full of criminals just in case publishing such speculation causes an informant — if there is any crime to uncover — to come forward. If it turns out the targets are innocent, no harm done, right? Good reputations are like money. Unlike a Pulitizer, you can’t take them with you.)
