Big surprise. The New York Times used the death of Robert Kennedy's granddaughter, Saoirse Kennedy Hill, to cover for Ted Kennedy and hail Chappaquiddick as "another Kennedy family tragedy."

The story in the Times details the death of Saoirse Kennedy Hill and somehow jumps to the 50th anniversary of Chappaquiddick, an event the article describes simply as an accident that killed Mary Jo Kopechne. All while completely ignoring the fact that Kennedy walked away from the scene and left Kopechene to die.
