Great minds on Jack Kelley...


On Fox News Watch on January 17 [1]:
GABLER: And there's another issue here. It's surprising how incurious "USA Today" was all these years when there were accusations against him because he was a star. He was a star reporter and they wanted that star.

PINKERTON: As they say around newsrooms, this story is too good to check.

(LAUGHTER)


On January 19, on a blog not so very far, far away:
one gets the sense...that Kelley was giving USA Today stuff that was too good to be looked at too hard.


  1. That's Jim Pinkerton of Newsday and Neal Gabler.
