The News Not Fit to Print (About Atlantic Yards)

Atlantic Yards blogger Norman Oder discovered there was part of Monday’s profile of planning director Amanda Burden that The New York Times deemed not fit to print.

The paragraph, which did make it onto the newspaper’s Web site, recounted a panel discussion at which Ms. Burden dismissed Atlantic Yards’ opponents as “nostalgic and infantile.” (Mr. Oder also knocks the Times for giving Ms. Burden credit for reducing the scale of the Brooklyn project, when the developer had proposed the reduction himself.)
