MEDIA: New York Times Steals (Back) From Me
Besides a quote from Dave Levin and a nice picture of Kashi Nelson, the KIPP teacher who belatedly changed her mind about unionization, yesterday's NY Times story about the KIPP AMP mess (here) didn't seem to add much to the story I reported last month (A Teacher Changes Her Mind). Yes, reported. Take a look and I think you'll see what I'm talking about.
To be sure, I would have loved some acknowledgment for having been first to report this. My scoops are rare, since I do so little reporting. Then again, everyone knows that big papers don't like to credit competitors who beat them to a story, especially annoying little blogs. Things like this happen all the time.
And of course, I steal stuff from the Times every day, including for example this nice picture of Kashi Nelson, the KIPP teacher who belatedly changed her mind about unionization. So I don't like it, but I guess it serves me right. You know I broke this story. They know, too. They're probably just trying to even the score.
