'NY Times' Chairman Asked About Spiked Obama-ACORN Story (http://thebulletin.us/articles/2009/05/06/top_stories/doc4a0152a4bdad0342302497.txt)

New York Times chairman Arthur Sulzberger was asked about the March 30 The Bulletin report that his paper intentionally did not use information that might be deleterious to the Obama campaign.

Julian Gammon, a minority shareholder, asked the question during the annual shareholders meeting in The New York Times offices on April 23.

“He said he didn’t know anything about it and told me to give the details to his staff assistant and she would get back to me,” Mr. Gammon told the Bulletin in an email.

Mr. Gammon said that he gave all the information to the assistant – including a copy of the Bulletin story. To date he has not received a reply.

When asked if he thought if the Times’ profitability is affected by actions such as this, Mr. Gammon replied, “I do not think their credibility is helped by this sort of thing.”

The New York Times was contacted about the status of the inquiry. Catherine Mathis, SVP of Corporate Communications replied, by email, that a response was sent via email to Mr. Gammon on April 23.

Mr. Gammon said he does not recall receiving an email response from the New York Times, but would check his records again to be certain.

I suggest he check his junk folder for the response. It's naturally where anything from the NYT would go.
