Darby recalled fielding phone calls from NYT asking what was going on (normally the reverse is true)...

Ashley remarked that H-S was embarrassed by getting scooped by N&O and that was trying to play catchup. Mentioned competition between news outlets. Implication was that had driven story quickly and in the wrong direction...
