CJR Daily and the Navasky affair

Columbia Journalism Review's blog, CJR Daily, has still not posted a single item on the CJR/Navasky affair. Do they think it is unimportant? Are they scared of annoying their new boss?

(For those new to the story, leftist editor and publisher of The Nation, Victor Navasky, was running CJR behind behind the scenes for a number of months without appearing on the publication's masthead. He was only publicly credited with running CJR after being outed by the blogosphere.)

Apparently CJR Daily's managing editor Bryan Keefer has "shared some laughs" over the issue. Wonder why he refrains from writing about it?

Update: Keefer is evidently assistant managing editor of CJR Daily.
