Advice for Cubune editor, too?

filed by George Bova

January 11,2005

An independent panel released its final report on the journalistic gaffes that led to CBS News' reports concerning George Bush's National Guard service last September.  Here's one short excerpt that ought to give Cubune editor Ann Marie Lipinski a moment's pause.

"The panel does not find a basis to accuse those who investigated, produced, vetted or aired the segment of having a political bias. The panel does note, however, that on such a politically charged story, coming in the midst of a presidential campaign in which military service records had become an issue, there was a need for meticulous care to avoid any suggestion of an agenda at work. The panel does not believe that the appropriate level of care to avoid the appearance of political motivation was used in connection with this story."

After her new organization spent most of last summer trailing, burying, and outright ignoring a series of news stories regarding murder and scandal in and around her paper's sister baseball division -- and her continued denials about any organizational bias as cause for this behavior -- would Cubune editor Ann Marie Lipinski's outfit do as well as CBS under similar investigation by an independent panel?

Sox Fans already know the answer to that one.
