Drudge reports that New York Times investigative reporter Glen Justice is investigating the status of adoption records of Judge Roberts' two children. According to Drudge, a NYT source calls this an NYT "standard background check." Reverting to the old "anonymous sources" schtick, Drudge quotes a "top Washington official" as saying, "Trying to pry into the lives of the Roberts’ family like this is despicable. Children’s lives should be off limits. The Times is putting politics over fundamental decency," and a "top Republican official" as being incredulous and saying, "This can’t possibly be true?"
I would say that fundamentally, this investigation is indecent.
Michelle Malkin - For God's sake.
Jeff Goldstein - has list of 9 other "standard background checks" form NYT for Roberts' family
The Captain - thought that the Times' job was to report news.
Generation Why? - more important story than the theft of $875,000 from poor kids and old folks.
Angry in the Great White North - First go after the Bush twins, then target Judge Roberts' kids.
The Political Teen - This is just plain disgusting.
Macsmind - The "paper of record" goes fishing. For what? Nanny problems?
TBogg - Says the Roberts couple should never have adopted the two children and, "Fuck, (Captain) Ed is stupid." This is an example of why the lefties lose and will continue to lose...no class. Captain Ed is stupid? I'll have to start reading his posts more closely in the future because I had failed to detect that.
Damian Penny has more on The Captain.
Smash - Is nothing off limits?
Steve Verdon at OTB - New York Times is taking its cues from the Daily Kos.
PoliPundit - They're doing it for the children.
