THE PLANK FEBRUARY 23, 2008

Nyt Public Editor On Mccain Scandal

This afternoon, Times public editor Clark Hoyt weighed in on the fallout from the paper's McCain investigation. This is likely Hoyt's biggest scandal yet as Times omsbudsman. While Bill Keller and Times editors continue to stand by the story, Hoyt disputes Keller's claims that the story was justified by the reporting. "What the aides believed might not have been the real truth," is how Hoyt puts it. "And if you
cannot provide readers with some independent evidence, I think it is
wrong to report the suppositions or concerns of anonymous aides about
whether the boss is getting into the wrong bed."
