NPR stands by story its ombud criticized in lengthy report: http://t.co/dd3iOidQX3 " little to be gained from a point-by-point response"

There are six chapters of NPR Ombudsman Edward Schumacher-Matos’ epic examination of Laura Sullivan and Amy Walters’ October 2011 investigation about foster care in South Dakota.
The series won awards but was also criticized by the state’s governor and head of its Department of Social Services. “Many South Dakota residents also have written me in disapproval of it,” Schumacher-Matos writes. “My finding is that the series was deeply flawed and should not have been aired as it was.”
It was optional to hate NPR in 1993. Now that you've scorched a DC neighborhood with your Taj Mahal HQ, it's mandatory.
