Here’s an interesting item, in which a writer with a major vested interest in a story criticizes another newspaper for having a vested interest in the story. Not that I’m rushing to the defense of the Seattle Times here (the story was terrific, but the Blethen family, its owner, is an evil pack of union-busting bastards) but… the Wall Street Journal op-ed page? If Ms. Landro had any information proving the story was false or flawed, wouldn’t she have run an article in the far more reputable WSJ news section? (UPDATE 7 April 02: Salon’s on the case.)
