Berger and the 9/11 Commission

I still can't get over Sandy Berger. Check out page 14 of the Inspector General's report on Berger's larceny:

...________ said ___ informed the White House that NARA was not able to reconstruct the responsive documents for EOP2, as Mr. Berger was provided original documents. ________ said ____ would never know what if any original documents were missing from Mr. Berger's visits on May 30, 2003 and July 18, 2003.

The OI, with assistance from __________, reviewed the documents Mr. Berger had reviewed in an attempt to identify if it could be determined if additional documents were missing. It was not apparent that Mr. Berger removed an entire NSC numbered package or a SMOF file folder, however, the contents of these documents could not be verified. Due to complications, the emails Mr. Berger reviewed could not be readily reconstructed...

Does anyone -- anyone! -- in the mainstream media care that Berger likely removed and destroyed original documents just prior to the 9/11 Commission's investigation?

At this point, I'd call the New York Times and their ilk "reprehensible pond-scum", but that would be a mortal insult to real pond-scum everywhere. However, I can always take solace by reviewing the Times' stock chart.
