A Small Newspaper Broke the Santos Scandal But No One Paid Attention

From a Washington Post story by Sarah Ellison headlined “A tiny paper broke the George Santos scandal, but no one paid attention”:

Months before the New York Times published a December article suggesting Rep.-elect George Santos (R-N.Y.) had fabricated much of his résumé and biography, a tiny publication on Long Island was ringing alarm bells about its local candidate.

The North Shore Leader wrote in September, when few others were covering Santos, about his “inexplicable rise” in reported net worth — from essentially nothing in 2020 to as much as $11 million two years later.
