Are we supposed to believe, in a Reuters article bizarrely headlined NY MTA: Still sees $1 bln from Brooklyn's Atlantic Yards:
- that MTA Chief Financial Officer Gary Dellaverson knew what he was talking about when he said "We don't have any current concern with respect to the $1 billion" the agency expects from Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards plan?
- that the Reuters reporter didn't know the purchase price for the Vanderbilt Yard is $100 million?
- that the reporter thinks Atlantic Yards would "be built on one of the agency's rail yards"?
- that the reporter didn't realize that the real story, which MTA officials wouldn't touch, is the Observer's scoop about Ratner trying to delay paying the money owed?
