Reporting news that local newspapers seem unwilling or unable to cover, the Associated Press today revisits the unsettled lives of a dozen Haitian children still living in a local institution six months after being transported to Pittsburgh -- in sketchy circumstances that have created a problem for the United States Department of State -- in the wake of Haiti's devastating earthquake. (Early Returns mentions the AP report.)
If any local newsgatherer wishes to begin to cover this story, it might check whether religious discrimination tainted screening of prospective adoptive parents; whether any false declarations were made in attempting to arrange clearance to depart Haiti; or whether Haitian authorities have threatened criminal charges.
