New York Times officially censored
Yesterday, 22 December 2006, the New York Times ran an op-ed. Nothing unusual there, the NYT runs at least one op-ed in each edition.
However. this op-ed was 'redacted', that's to say parts of it were blacked out by the CIA's Publication Review Board.
This was after the "White House intervened in the normal prepublication review process and demanded substantial deletions."
Op-ed contributors Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann explain why in What We Wanted to Tell You About Iran: NYT
That link also leads to the redacted version, and citations of what is missing.
Raw Story has pieced together what it thinks is missing and why it is so awkward for the current occupant of the White House: Raw Story
Thanks for the heads up, ESWN
