Playing FAIR?

Remember the controversy about Bush's mysterious bulge on the back of his suit during the first presidential debate? Well, maybe you would have heard more about it if the New York Times editors had not decided to kill a story about the possibility the bulge was an electronic device Bush used to cheat during the debate--right before the election.

In the story that never ran, a NASA scientist showed that the bulge was a T-shaped object. See Dave Lindorff's story in Extra! from Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR):
The Emperor's New Hump
