Leave it once again to Dave Zirin, a rapidly developing world-class muckraker and wordsmith, to pull down the pants of the MLB corporate machine, embodied this time in the empty suit of George Mitchell and his monumentally disingenuous, foul-smelling "report."
Mitchell's whitewash carries on the grand tradition of such documents as the Warren, Kerner and Kent State commissions, and a few NASA accident reports, where each in its own specific purpose flew in the face of openness, fact-based candor and enlightenment, in favor of subterfuge, doublespeak, driving responsibility intentionally downward and planned obscurity of the truth.
One can only hope that the controversy over this document will continue, and eventually lead to the real story behind this mess.
