The New York Times says it took nearly a million dollars from bloody Khartoum in its "strong belief" that "all pages of the paper . . . must remain open to the free flow of ideas . . . [but] we do not endorse the politics . . . or actions . . . or the character of [the country's] leaders."
I won't be surprised although no less disgusted to see a bountiful special advertising Times supplement paid for by Robert Mugabe on how the people of Zimbabwe enjoy unprecedented prosperity and a free press under his deeply compassionate reign. That should cost $2 million.
