Why did newspapers ignore the Acorn story?

Here's one explanation, from Austin Statesman Editor Fred Zipp.  It's all about dissing Fox News, and note two sources he quotes: 

"ACORN is a national group dedicated to community organizing. According to its website."

"Wikipedia has a succinct description of the group"

And they wonder why people seek out alternative news sources.

    The young couple who exposed these crooks deserve a Pulitzer prize. Fox did (and coninues to do) a superb job of bringing this to light-a story of watergate proportions. The traditional liberal media is so discredited and decrepit that they are worthless; a national embarassment.

    For the same reason they ignore whatever goes against their agenda. I blieve it's called bias, but don't quote me on that. I didn't attend Columbia School of Journalism; I merely have a functioning brain.
