The New York Times, which had been unforgivably remiss on Jena coverage until yesterday, has finally gotten the memo. Richard G. Jones, the reporter who filed yesterday’s piece (which ended with a charged confrontation between Mychal Bell’s parents, Bryant Purvis’s mom and the Rev. P.A. Paul, who wrote off the nooses as “kid’s play”), has sent this lively update from today’s protests, which is posted on the Times blog The Lede. More to come, I’m sure.
Update: The Washington Post has produced an annotated photo gallery of the day’s events.
