Preya Samsundar continues to beat the stuffing out of the Twin Cities institutional media in reporting on Minneapolis DFL legislative candidate Ilhan Omar’s fuzzy marital history.
Only this time, she may have done it with the unwitting help of the City Pages’ DFLer-with-byline Cory Zurowski:
Whether or not Mr. Zurowski realizes it, he has shed new light into the Omar case. The story, which was originally published on Wednesday, October 26, Mr. Zurowski wrote that Ilhan Omar’s father is named “Nur Said Elmi Mohamed”. A day later, Zurowski’s article was changed and now Omar’s father’s name appears in the article as “Nur Omar Mohamed”.
Read the whole thing.
And then ask yourselves why nobody in the Twin Cities media is covering this story.
To use a Glenn Reynolds line, it helps if you think of reporters as Democrat operatives with bylines. Who, in this case, don’t want to be barred from the Saint Paul Grill.
