Money cleanses: what's missing from the Times's Prokhorov article (hint: whatever the Nets do, Prokhorov's already won)

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder runs through some of the things missing from The Times's puffy profile of Mikhail Prokhorov, including:

  • Any mention of Atlantic Yards, the project proposed and pursued by his business partner Bruce Ratner...

  • The recognition that the Times might disclose the newspaper company's business relationship with Ratner...

  • The realization that Prokhorov, like Ratner, might be beneficiary of some sweetheart deals...

  • Voices beyond Prokhorov regarding his super-swift path to wealth...

It's not about Nets' victories. Prokhorov, virtually unknown in America, is on the cover of the Times Magazine. He's already won.

Money changes everything? No, money cleanses everything.
