The other day I wrote about a lousy item in the Boston Globe, in which the reporter did a “gotcha” on Jeb Bush’s Super PAC for running an ad featuring a journalist with “conspiracy theorist” leanings. Here’s an update: it turns out the Globe actually swiped its lousy item in the first place — from the New York Times. And then hyped it up a bit. The Times at least contacted the journalist, and let him (or his spokesman) respond. Double spanking to Globe, single, gentler one to Times. 

Where else do you see journalism of this quality and value?
