- Really? March 23
An article in The New York Times Magazine this weekend from Carlotta Gall lays out the case that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence knew of and hid Osama bin Laden in the country for years. But readers of the Times' international edition in Pakistan didn't see the story in print. There, a local printer left an empty space where the story was slated to run.
A Times spokeswoman, Eileen Murphy, confirmed the alteration, saying it had been done "without our knowledge or agreement." The paper noted that another article earlier this month, on the Chinese sex industry, was censored, too.- -
