A reader notes this in NYT IRS story: 'A version of this article appeared in print on May 11, 2013, on page A11 of the New York edition.'—

The IRS apologized Friday for singling out conservative groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names for audits of their applications for tax-exempt status. Translation: We’re sorry we got caught.
Want to read about that in the New York Times before lining your bird cage? Try page A11.
The IRS targeting a particular political viewpoint for scrutiny is front page news, period. Shame on the NY Times for burying it on A11—

If you look really hard, you can find a below-the-fold teaser on the front page.
It’s also buried on the New York Times website.
Hey, what's missing from the top half of the New York Times homepage? Why, the IRS-targets-conservatives scandal!—

Reminder: The Fishwrap of Record squeed with delight last year and patted the IRS on the back for a job well done.
Will the editorial be retracted? We won’t hold our breath.
