NY Press Dead Silent on SEC Cover-Up, Except For Forbes’ Liz Moyer

Bob O’Brien

Sanity Check, 21 August 2006

Maybe if we don’t talk about the SEC cover-up, it never happened?

That seems to be the way our venerated NY press corps is treating the FOIA data on Global Links – the topic of the last two blogs, and of a Forbes article on Friday.

This is playing out like the Dan Rather incident, but times ten. Bloggers and a few mainstream pubs get it and break the story, while the media circles its wagons and goes into denial mode.

Anyone surprised? Note that there is nothing from the WSJ, nothing from the NY Times, nothing from Barron’s, nothing from the NY Sun, nothing from TheStreet.com or Marketwatch, nothing from CNBC, nor Bloomberg, nor AP, nor Reuters…not even from the Post.
