Among her highlights:
Stuart Taylor "rushed [his first] column to print in April 2006, worried that his column might be old news and others would beat him to the punch with this revelation. Taylor assumed many other journalists had reached similar conclusions, and he wanted to get his piece in. He was wrong. His was the only opinion piece from a member of the mainstream media (MSM) who was skeptical about the case."
It was obvious that Stuart Taylor is no fan of the New York Times. He said the NYT was “infected” with political correctness, which affects the editors, reporters, and the way the paper covers news. A reporter named Joe Drape had written something about the Duke case, which the defense liked. They sent him information, hoping he’d do a big story about the mounting exculpatory evidence. Taylor, who must have first-hand knowledge of this, said the Drape’s editors took him off the story and didn’t run it. The paper put another reporter on it.
Enter Duff Wilson, the NYT reporter who wrote a lot of Duke case stories. Wilson has been roundly ridiculed in the blogosphere because of his biased reporting.Joe Neff: the case was “the most competitive story my newspaper has ever seen.”
Also, he said he had been planning (correctly) to use the Gottlieb memorandum as an example of what was wrong with the case--only to see it serve as the spine for the discredited Duff Wilson article.
