Source close to South African judge claims he initially approached liberal publication to print his letter of regret – and was rejected. New York Times says in response it does not comment on editorial process
Not only did Judge Richard Goldstone's words of regret fail to match the global resonance of his original report, it now comes to light that one of the most important newspapers in the world refused to publish his retraction.
A source close to Goldstone stated that in the past few days the judge had approached the editor of the New York Times opinion pages requesting to post the article he wrote in the paper – and was told his article was rejected.
NYT lead editoralist, Thomas Friedman, responded to Goldstone, "I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction."
And, the good news is that the New York Times is now making you pay to read their leftard hate-screeds on-line.
