NY Times: How low can they go?
According to the Drudge Report, the New York Times has had an investigative reporter digging through the adoption records of Judge John Roberts' two children, ages 4 & 5. Frankly, that is getting way to personal for my liking. Did they give any thought to the effect on the Roberts family if they find something (which they won't)? They have no right to be rifling through those types of records without cause, and whatever they find would be used for no other purpose then to ruin the lives of both Judge Roberts and his children. John Roberts has more than enough money to conduct a perfectly legal adoption, and I'm sure he knows enough about the law to make sure that nothing fishy was going on during the adoption process. There is simply no evidence to suggest that the Times had any reason at all to look at those documents!
If, as the Times claims, this is all part of a standard background check; then they need to take a serious look at changing their policies. Whether their story is about John G. Roberts or Joe G. Schmo, they have no business prying that deep into someone's private life!
