NYT Ombud Chides Paper Over McCain Story

New York Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt takes his paper to task for its original John McCain story as well as the Friday follow-up.

Hoyt concludes that the newspaper didn’t have enough to report that top McCain aides had become “convinced” the senator’s was having an intimate relationship with a lobbyist, that they story did need that angle to make its points and that including it had invited distraction from what was otherwise “a good story.” (Committee of Concerned Journalists)
