The real person who should be interviewed on this Acorn story…

…is New York Times reporter Stephine Strom.

I sent an e-mail through the times feedback system this morning asking about her opinion on the current stories, how it jibes with her reporting from last year and if she plans on further reporting.

I think she is the real loser of this whole story. As Michelle mentions today she was breaking story after story on this when the Times shut her down.

Instead the times decided to ignore this and other stories (read Van Jones) at the cost of their credibility with the public.

A lot of other places ignored it too, but the times actually had an “in” and threw it away, what kind of Newspaper does that?

I’m not a reporter but I’m sure a professional reporter could appreciate how it must just twist your guts to lose a scoop like this.

I’ll let you know if Strom replies and what she says.

Update: Don Surber says aloud what I’m thinking:

I am convinced now more than ever that the unindicted Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization known as ACORN was the spine of the campaign to elect Barack Obama.

And THAT is why the Times had to repress the story.

Update: Misspelled her name, that’s why she is a pro and I’m not.
