How come Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart keep scooping the New York Times?
By JAMES TARANTO | SEPTEMBER 14, 2009
Last week we noted that Jill Abramson, managing editor of the New York Times, had acknowledged her paper was "a beat behind" on the story of Van Jones, the Obama administration's so-called green-jobs czar, who among other things once signed a 9/11 "truther" conspiracy petition. Times readers did not learn about Jones until he had already become the Obama administration's former so-called green-jobs czar. Abramson pointed out that long before the Times reported the story, "it had been discussed on talk radio, Fox News and other venues."
Our conclusion: "If you want to get the news ahead of the Times, watch Fox News Channel."
