    You will find the very same story - word for word in the Argus-Dispatch - which means it was a news release from Ringling Brothers. If so many people on this site dislike the Times stories then why are you on the site in the first place??

    I think you misunderstand the reason for having a web site or an app on a cell phone. The propose of these are to inform the public about an event with the information that you have at that time and then update the site as more information comes to light. Journalism is not a part of these sites, if I want all the details I can WAIT until I read it in the paper or hear it on the TV news.
