MATTHEW HOY WONDERS IF THE NEW YORK TIMES' NEW ARCHIVING POLICY is designed to frustrate fact-checking.

I think a more, not less, liberal archive policy is called for under the circumstances.

UPDATE: Drudge reports that two more New York Times reporters are being investigated.

Open the archives! Mr. Raines, tear down that firewall!

ANOTHER UPDATE: Richard Bennett observes:

The media establishment has told us that responsible news organizations are more reliable than the blogs because of all these editors and fact-checkers, but who seriously believes that a blogger doing what Blair did could have survived more than a few months without being caught out? I sure don't.

Bloggers have open archives, too.
