(To amplify on an earlier post by P-W) What do you call a newspaper that doesn't report news because its editorial staff is hiding under the bed?
I suppose you could call it an advertising broadsheet or comics with a horoscope and sports news.
Or you could call it the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
From the Associated Press:
The Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper, is holding two investigative stories based on leaked documents because they could result in the type of court showdown that led to a New York Times reporter being jailed, the paper's editor said Friday...Clifton said the Plain Dealer had decided several weeks ago - before Miller was imprisoned - to withhold the stories because the leaked documents could result in subpoenas and court sanctions, including jail. The stories deal with local and state government.
