The Times defends the front-page scaleback story, but then practices "rowback"
Atlantic Yards Report
Norman Oder has been trying to get the NY Times to acknowledge that the paper made a mistake, falling hook, line and sinker for Bruce Ratner's story about the 6%-8% scaleback.
This has led to a copious amount of correspondence with numerous editors, including the Public Editor Byron Calame.
Though the Gray Lady won't cry uncle, many of Oder's points have been added to subsequent coverage, without the paper admitting error.
NoLandGrab: Though the Times has made a fool of itself with its Atlantic Yards coverage, the real losers are Times readers in Central Brooklyn.
