NYT reporter lies to get into jail

mdoneil writes “A reporter for the New York Times lied to get into a detention center to see Anthony Pellicano. The contract reporter, Allison Hope Weiner is a indeed a member of the California bar but she is not Pelicano’s attorney.

According to the LA Times story the reporter violated Federal Law, California State Law, and the NYT Code of Ethics (such as it is).

Of course the reporter denies everything, but the detention center director and even the prisoner don’t believe a word of it.

Is this another get the story at any cost end run around the truth? Time will tell if she lied she deserves prison time and to be disbared.”
