I think it would be more useful to discuss the substantive issues, rather than accusing Boing Boing of bias. I've known Abelson for as long as I've known Aaron, and I was surprised by this report.
The substantive issue raised by TSK and Lessig is that the report characterizes MIT as "neutral" in its approach to the parties in the suit. But MIT supplied -- at its discretion, without any legal compulsion -- useful documents to the prosecution, and denied those documents to the defense, who had asked for them and needed them to keep Aaron out of jail.
That fact -- not in dispute -- makes the claim of neutrality hard to credit.
Add to this the also undisputed fact that MIT intervened in the effort to see Aaron's Secret Service file:
Something quite without precedent, and MIT emerges as even more partisan. As Ed Felten pointed out:
the claim that MIT wanted to ensure the documents were appropriately redacted is absurd on its face (the Secret Service is the among the most aggressive redacters in the FOIA league-tables). It's much more likely that they wanted to get out in front of the negative publicity the documents will generate based on MIT's participation in Aaron's prosecution.
