NY Times -- a rather disgusting silence
Story in the NY Post. A native of NYC gets a posthumous Medal of Honor, the first such issued in the Afghan fighting ... and the NY Times declines to cover the story.
A Google search of news shows the story is covered by the AP, NY Sun, NY Post, Newsday, NY Daily News, newspapers in Hawaii, California, D.C., Pennsylvania, Colorado, and others. But not in the NY Times.
That surprises you?

It doesn't surprise me; of course, if it had happened in California, there would probably be an anti-war protest at the ceremony.

In CA not just an anti-war protest but a nekkid, legalize-pot - with posters of Che and other "non-violent" activists, like Mao and Lenin...
