I cannot believe Goldy missed the headline about our latest constitutional crisis: “Of White House stonewalling on the investigation, Harman says, ‘We have a system of checks and balances and it’s broken. We’re in Constitutional crisis because of the arrogant view of some in this administration that they can decide what the policy is, write the legal opinions to justify that policy and be accountable to no one’.” Wow, might be a story there somewhere. Wait a minute…looks like the P-I missed it too. And The Times. Page after page of “The Nation” and “The World” and somehow our lying, lawbreaking administration didn’t merit a single line of coverage. Even searching on the phrase “constitutional crisis” in both papers yields scant hits in recent weeks (and nothing on tape destruction). Goldy, I forgive you! Sometimes it’s easy to miss the little ones, there’s so much real news out there…
We are, after all, in a noisy roads crisis. A1, top of the fold…and here you are complaining about no local news. For shame, Goldy, for shame….
UPDATE (– Goldy):
Of course, Paul, I was referring to paucity of local news headlines. But here’s one local news story I did miss, the one about the Seattle Symphony and its messy courtroom drama. But, um, isn’t it a little embarrassing to the folks at the P-I that they had to pick up this local story, day-old off the pages of the New York Times?
