Times profile of Norman Siegel ignores Atlantic Yards

The 9/9/05 Times profile of Public Advocate candidate Norman Siegel, An Outsider Wants to Take His Watchdog Role Inside, fails to mention Siegel's role in the Atlantic Yards debate, in which he has challenged incumbent Betsy Gotbaum on her incoherent position. Given that it was not written by the reporter who covered the two debates, it's plausible that the reporter profiling Siegel, who likely perused recent clips before meeting Siegel, didn't even know about the Atlantic Yards issue. That is, if the reporter only looked at Times clips; a more comprehensive search would turn up, for example, a Village Voice article and blog entry about the controversy.
