A reader noted that the massive Times story today about the troubled loan program that HUD offered while Andrew Cuomo was in charge wasn’t much of a timely piece of news. Much of the original reporting on this had hit newspapers around the time Cuomo ran for governor…in 2002.
But the issue got major play today – 2,000 words! – after the paper endorsed him (albeit reluctantly).
Which makes you wonder how New York Times readers are going to vote in this race if the editorial page is supporting Cuomo, and news pages are providing reasons not to.
