What did they know, and when did they know it?
The disclosure of the arrest of Budget Secretary Eloise Foster is no laughing matter, but this is once again another issue that brings forth the issue of trusting the media.
Here is a snipped from this morning’s Sun story in Metro Notes:
“Secretary Foster immediately disclosed the incident,” O’Malley spokesman Rick Abbruzzese said in a statement. “She has been treated like any other state employee and has the governor’s full confidence as the legal process continues.”
And that’s fine. This isn’t about the Administration.

This is about the press. How in the world do Sun reporters not find out about a six-week old incident until the Examiner reports it and it is disclosed by the administration? Is there any doubt that had this been an Ehrlich appointee or a prominent Republican that it would have been splashed on Page 1A the next morning, not buried in the Maryland section weeks after the fact?
