The Missing Voice

Sometimes the bias in Times news articles isn't in what they say, but in what they leave out.

One example in today's paper is an article by Patrick McGeehan that appears under the headline "Critics Wait for the City To Rein In Bus Lines." The article features five paragraphs from a business owner complaining about intercity bus companies whose buses park in front of her businesses, and two paragraphs from a person who represents the businesses. There are two paragraphs from a "spokeswoman for several bus companies." But there's no representation at all of the point of view of the customers of the bus lines, which even the article concedes are "popular." The article complains about "clogged sidewalks." Well, welcome to New York City.



Clyde Haberman manages to write an article about a matchmaker without talking to a single customer of the matchmaker, either satisfied or dissatisfied, and without reporting how much the matchmaker charges for her services. It would be a better article if it included that information.

THUMBS UP to the New York Times' Clyde Haberman for his recent reports from Israel and the Palestinian areas which give voice to the fears that Israelis live with daily.
