Squabbling and recriminations have broken out among the media over the press' conduct in the Clarence Thomas confirmation battle. One reporter has quit her paper, another has been publicly revealed to be under investigation for sexual harassment, a third has been condemned as lacking in credibility because of plagiarism. And the press in general has been accused by one of its own of having "congealed into an undifferentiated blob" that is "out of the mainstream" of American thought.

The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for the jailing of two reporters who refused to reveal confidential sources to a prosecutor investigating how the name of an undercover CIA operative ended up in a newspaper column. The high court, without comment, declined to hear the appeal of Judith Miller of the New York Times and Matthew Cooper of Time magazine, who had argued that the 1st Amendment protected them from having to identify their sources to special prosecutor Patrick J.

April 29, 2001 | TAMAR JACOBY, Tamar Jacoby, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, is the author of "Someone Else's House: America's Struggle for Integration."
When journalist Suzanne DeChillo arrived in Maplewood, N.J., last spring to photograph schoolchildren for one in a series of front-page articles that the New York Times was preparing on race, she wasn't particularly aware of being driven by her own preconceptions. Nevertheless, she wrote in her journal, she couldn't find what she was looking for. For one fleeting moment, she thought she had it: "an image of self-segregation" in the high school cafeteria.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK OF SCIENCE LITERACY, edited by Richard Flaste (Times Books: $24.95; 318 pp.). The New York Times' Science Times pages are a great crossover feature--science deftly dished up for the lay reader. This collection includes pieces that appeared between January, 1987, and March, 1990--as much of a hedge as a book can make against dated material. The result is the equivalent of a big bag of your favorite junk food--say, M&Ms.

The Pentagon on Thursday sent Congress a formal assessment of the war in Iraq that describes the insurgency as "capable, adaptable and intent," but does not disclose details on the readiness of Iraqi security forces. The report, the first of a series required by law at 90-day intervals, provides a generally upbeat view of progress in Iraq, contending that postwar recovery efforts have the support of a majority of Iraqis and the international community.

Coming off one of their worst years ever, media companies are not expecting any quick relief from the 1991 advertising decline that has battered the nation's biggest newspapers and television stations. "1991 was the toughest year we have had since we went public," Gannett Co.'s chief financial officer, Douglas McCorkindale, said last week. Now the nation's largest newspaper company, Gannett sold stock to the public in 1967.
