Stop -- and smell the news

FEV over at Headsuptheblog has an excellent observation on an editor's mea culpa for his paper's failure to publish a story abut the John Kerry comments last week.

I appreciate Tim's comments about his copydesk, and anybody who tries to tamp down the embers of conspiracy theory in SENCland has my sympathy. But I'd like the column a lot better if it began: "We deliberately left a meaningless story out of Wednesday's paper. The New York Times didn't tell us to. We did it on our own, and we might just do it with the next meaningless campaign story we see. So there."
headsup: the blog: What if it isn't news?
