Just noticed that I wrote this item one year ago today--it's back in the news this week:
NYT's fine public editor Margaret Sullivan hits the paper for failing to cover last week's scoop on NSA passing info on to Israel. Paper says "modest" story and didn't have resources to cover. She points out they didn't even publish an AP or Reuters story. Of course, the Times' coverage and commentary re: Israel long been questioned.
