THE NEW YORK TIMES MANAGES TO MENTION

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/27/2008

the Ayers / Obama run Chicago Annenberg Challenge education organization without actually mentioning it by name, at the very tail end of an article on the Obama campaign’s counter attack against the Ayers / Obama ads being run by the American Issues Project.  Here’s the non-mention mention:

The fight [over the Ayers / Obama relationship] may move to another front this week. 

The University of Illinois
at Chicago is in the process or releasing documents detailing Mr.
Obama’s involvement with a non-profit education project started by Mr.
Ayers.

Hmmm.  What might that project be and who might have been THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD of that organization?  Shhh.  Don’t tell the readers.  Until the Obama campaign is ready to discuss that name and that chairman, it seems the Times will follow the Obama lead, and it won’t mention that name and its chairman either. 

Sure is a good thing they have all those editors at the Times.  We wouldn’t want things like that getting out if the Obama campaign didn’t want them getting out.

UPDATE:  Don’t miss the magical Bill Ayers / John Kerry / Swift Boat tie in.

UPDATE II:  Tom Maguire picks up the story:

The NY Times
is all meta – they are happy to bash the shadowy group besmirching
their candidate but are unwilling to note the long. strong tie between
Ayers and Obama by way of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.  When last we looked,
Jim Rutenberg of the Times was utterly unaware of (or at least,
unwilling to report) that tie; now, his final paragraph warms up their
readers for revelations to follow:

The fight may move to another front this week.

The University of Illinois
at Chicago is in the process or releasing documents detailing Mr.
Obama’s involvement with a non-profit education project started by Mr.
Ayers.

It’s almost like reporting!
