I've got to come back and defend the Times again. I'm currently working with the Poynter Institute, who owns the SPT, and there is no institution more devoted to quality journalism than these guys. They are the authority on the institution -- newspapers all over the world call them to ask for help and advice. Seriously. Poynter is as good as it gets, and they put that into the Times.

Other than the few stupid columnists I've mentioned, SPT has been very fair to Dukes. The most recent story emphasizes in the first paragraph that it's just what the girl told the police, and follows that up by saying that it isn't a crime. It's their job to report this stuff. If somebody accuses somebody famous of something, the paper has to report the accusation. Would you want journalists to ignore the entire Valerie Plame issue because nothing had been proven against anyone?

I'm not close to the situation but he "allegedly" knocked up a 17 year old who was in the care of his foster parents. I think this is the story people are talking about. Unfortunately I can't remember where I read this but its out there....

TB decisions are mind boggling. I understand that they are not the most saavy managers of baseball but still... If you are trying to unload Dukes, then what is the point of sitting him? It just doesn't make any sense to me but maybe someone has an explanation?
