I believe this was mentioned here a few weeks back.
For those who don't want to click on the link, I've excerpted the key points below:
"The New York Times
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
Exclusively for Times Subscribers
The Penn State Scandal
by Joe Sexton
I have served as both Metro editor and Sports editor at The New York Times.
In closing, it's been a wild and exhausting two weeks. Tips have led to breakthroughs and more tips. Just how insular a community like State College is -- full of strong emotions and multiple conflicts -- became astoundingly clear. One of our reporters was chased off by dogs; another was threatened by a tow truck driver. Many conversations took place both in trailer parks and in the hallways of academia. More than boys had been violated it seemed. A proud university's sense of superiority and privilege and arrogance had been blown up, too.
More TK, as we say in the business."
Maybe we can let ol' Mr. Sexton know that our inbred hick redneck community is one of the safest in the country, according to a survey of crime statistics.
Much safer than Manhattan, which is nowhere to be found on the list of safest communities.
You lost me at "NY Times"...........
This corny piece of writing suggests he should think again about who he is accusing of "superiority and privilege and arrogance."
"But, as Al Siegal, one of our legendary editors, liked to say, once the NYT kicks into gear, it's an impressive thing to watch. A Cadillac he might have called it. Al, of course, is retired. So, make it an Escalade."
