In the New York Sun Eli Lake reports on the lead to Iran in the JFK investigation. The Sun devotes an editorial to the subject as well, focusing on the Tehran-Caracas connection. The New York post devotes an editorial to the New York Times’s lack of interest in the subject:
[F]ar more important to the Times than the prospect of a plot aiming to out-do 9/11 were front-page stories about:
* The debate over the legality of detaining “boy fighters” in the Guantanamo prison camp.
* How the brick laying trade in India is benefiting peasants.
* Proper upkeep for “the most treasured violins.”
Let’s be clear here: The “paper of record” isn’t guilty of merely poor news judgment. It’s got an agenda.
