Hardly surprising …

… Inky Covers Up Prosecutorial Misconduct In D.A. Krasner's Office | Big Trial | Philadelphia Trial Blog. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

This morning, however, the Inquirer committed a few new crimes against journalism. First, they printed a story that said the district attorney's office was withdrawing three sexual assault charges against Carl Holmes, a former chief inspector in the police department. 

But in reporting that news, the Inquirer deliberately omitted the main reason why Common Pleas Court Judge Karen Simmons tossed those charges -- on Jan. 7th, the judge caught Assistant District Attorney Rachel Black lying about an alleged victim's availability to appear in court.
