'If the Times didn't think the Acorn story was worth covering, why does it now find Mr. O'Keefe – and other campus conservatives — worthy of so much ink?'

It takes Bernie Goldberg a while to get to his point here, but it’s a good one. Whether or not you think O’Keefe actually did what he’s been convicted in the press of doing, it is a bit odd that the New York Times didn’t find him worthy of front-page coverage until he failed at the sort of work they didn’t cover when he was successful at it.

The sports section couldn’t get away with only covering the home team when they win one, yet it’s fine on the front page.
