OUR STANDARDS DON'T APPLY TO US:
NYT editor: We had to keep mum on Afghan abduction (AP, June 21, 2009)
The Times reported Saturday that reporter David Rohde (ROHD) escaped by climbing over a wall. Rohde was abducted Nov. 10 along with an Afghan reporter and a driver south of the Afghan capital of Kabul.
In an interview on CNN Sunday, Times editor Bill Keller said suppressing the story of David Rohde's kidnapping seven months ago was "an agonizing position that we revisited over and over again."
