Boston Globe -- Corrupt or Incompetent

I am e-mailing this to Jay Rosen, an NYU journalism professor and the proprietor of Pressthink to ask him about the Globe's treatment of Kerry's navy records.

As I noted previously, John O'Neill has raised serious questions about the form Kerry signed. Wouldn't basic Journalism 101 require that the paper contact the most prominent representative of those who have been calling for these records to be released and get a comment? Wouldn't we expect that the Globe would want to make sure that they had, indeed, gotten ALL the records? And, if they had checked it out, told us so that all these questions wouldn't remain?

Jay assures us that the MSM is not biased. Should we assume incompetence instead?
