Mr. Lee may be eccentric, obsessive, and sometimes even petty and vindictive. He isaterrible slob. But he is alsoavery good reporter. He has exposedalot of wrong doing and championed the plight of those suffering horribly as the UN member states and the organization have failed to act. He has broken more stories than the Turtle Bay reporters for the world’s leading news organizations. And so many UN reporters are complete tools (a large number work for government controlled media or publications controlled by odious oligarchs). So who are they to challenge his accreditation?Ihave no doubt the great Murray Kempton, who reported often from the UN back in the day, would think highly of Mr. Lee.
