This just in from the New York Times: Air America financial scandal!

The state attorney general’s office and the city’s Department of Investigation are looking into whether a boys and girls club serving poor children and ailing elderly people in the Bronx had improper financial dealings, including loans to the Air America radio network, state and city officials said yesterday.

Thanks to Leon at for the link. Guess the Grey Lady isn’t moving as sprightly as she used to. It took her 2 weeks to catch up with (as Leon notes), “the Arizona Republic, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, The Oregonian, the Washington Times, the Sun, the Post, the Daily News, the Opinion Journal, Investors Business Daily and about a zillion blogs (with no editors!) on this story that almost exclusively happened within the confines of New York.”

Leon also properly points to Michelle Malkin, who’s been one of the blogs leading the way on this story. Michelle tries looking for the story on the Times web site.

But you need a magnifying glass to find it. Go the the homepage. Nothing there. Click over the National section. Nothing there. Find your way to the NY/Region section. Scroll way down past the featured stories.

Aha! There it is:

Bronx Boys Club’s Finances Investigated

The story is essentially buried, which is different than the big coverage Air America gets when there’s marginally good news. But that’s not all. Brian Maloney of “The Radio Equalizer” has also been a pit bull on this story. His commentary today notes, among a bunch of other problems, the cleansing of quotes from Al Franken and spokesman Jim Grossman for use in the story.

The “Paper of Record” slips further and further into irrelevancy.
