Second attempt to row the Atlantic fails, but that gets much less ink

Two months ago, I criticized the local press for paying attention to the second attempt by Victor Mooney to row the Atlantic while ignoring bigger stories of civic concern.

Now Mooney's second attempt has been aborted, due to a failure of water purifiers; that news gets a brief in the Brooklyn Eagle and the Courier-Life chain.

The New York Times, which ran a story in February, hasn't told us about the demise of the Goree Challenge II. Well, the Times hasn't covered Forest City Ratner's bailout of ACORN, either.
