Subject:        New York Times Articles

The New York Times reporter William S. Niederkorn has two articles in
last Sunday's edition (Feb. 10, 2002).  One is a review of William
Rubbo's anti-Stratfordian (Marlovian) documentary, "Much Ado about
Something," and the other is an article that purports to describe the
authorship controversy but actually advocates the anti-Stratfordian
position very strongly.  The article does mention Terry Gray and David
Kathman's website, but Niederkorn has either not read their website or
has not paid attention to it if he has read it.  Reporters are allowed
to have a point of view, of course, but this is a prime example of
reporting giving way to advocacy.
