A Country Without an Honest Media Is Lost

I learned of New York Times editor Bari Weiss' resignation letter to A. G. Sulzberger from a relative and from friends who called to ask if I wrote the letter as it sounds so much like me.  

No,  of course I did not write the letter. This is an extraordinary letter written by a journalist of real principle and integrity who realized that such highly valuable journalistic traits were no longer welcome at the New York Times.  Bari Weiss' letter is better than anything I could have written. She lived the experience. I could only infer it.

As a former Wall Street Journal associate editor and columnist, as Business Week's first and for some years only outside columnist in its history, as columnist for Scripps Howard newspapers, for Creators Syndicate in Los Angeles, as a regular contributer to the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the San Diego Union, and a number of other once prominant newspapers, and as a regular guest on the TV networks, I am no longer permitted on any of these media platforms today.

The reason is that truth does not correspond to their message.
