What do you as a newspaper editor do if you send an overpaid reporter out - all expenses paid - to do a story and there's no story there?
Run it anyway and pretend there is a story there.
See "Guns in Public, and Out of Sight."
What's it about?
"The New York Times examined the [concealed carry] permit program in North Carolina ... While ... the review ... does not provide answers, it does raise questions."
It raises questions? Uh, no. It doesn't. Other than this one:
How much money did the Times waste on this non-story?
