The Times kept up the pressure on Governor Paterson with another story in prime time on the front page of the print edition on Wednesday. Investigators Are Told of Paterson Bid to Quiet Accuser, reads the headline.
'Make This Go Away'It's not until you get to page A29 that you get to read Paterson's version.
The governor has begun telling top state Democrats that he had a conversation with Ms. Booker only because she reached out to him to complain that she was being pestered by reporters from The Times.And there are a couple of articles in other outlets - Daily Politics and the Village Voice - that elaborate on his side of the story.
And I'm not taking that side for now....I just don't know. Nobody does for sure except for the parties involved. The investigation is ongoing. So I'm just saying that just because something is published in the right hand column on page A1 of the New York Times doesn't make it true. As we've seen in the past, and with tragic results.
