Questions About 'NYT' Photo Essay

I've missed this until now but ace blogger and photo expert Michael Shaw has done a lengthy re-cap and analysis of recent problem at the Times, when it suddenly pulled a photo essay--about an alleged slavery/girl servant in Haiti--and ran an editors' note.  Love the title: "A Story Gone Haywire--Then Simply Gone."  It's a little complicated to detail so just go check it out.  Shaw raises all sorts of interesting larger questions about photo essays, lack of fact-checking regarding them, and asks whether the NYT has gone far enough in "correcting."
