Cobell Lawyer Critical of Coverage; ICTMN Posts Clarification


Yesterday on Indianz.com (and on other sites), one of the principal lawyers who worked on the Cobell settlement, Keith Harper published an essay (Keith Harper: Just a few truths about Obama, Cobell and me) that was highly critical of our story first published on Monday, September 10, now called "White House Says Lawyer in Cobell Deal Recused on Administration Conflicts (UPDATE).” In his essay, Harper provided information that clarified the issue of recusal and led us to update our coverage. We did not run Harper's essay on this website because it also made unsubstantiated allegations about our practices and the reporter who wrote the piece.
