There are claims that, just as the ACORN story was coming to the surface before the November 2008 election, it was suppressed to protect the election chances of Barack Obama.
Powerline reports today on the New York Times' denial in killing the story to protect Obama ... and how the denial appears to help prove the point that they possibly did have a hand in being sure a "game-changer" situation did not occur:
In today's New York Times, Public Editor Clark Hoyt reveals the result of his investigation into the charge that the paper killed a story during the 2008 Presidential campaign in order to help Barack Obama. Hoyt concludes that the claim is "nonsense."There are many questions about ACORN and it is a story waiting for an investigative reporter to pursue. Glenn Beck has been talking with ACORN insiders who have asked questions of their own and been thrown out ... people who were brave to come forward after beating their heads against a wall trying to find answers.
But the facts as related by Hoyt don't rebut the charge; they support it.
The many layers of ACORN ... stay tuned.
