NYT Admits They Gave MoveOn Preferential Break

The New York Times has attempted to defend the low price they charged for its "General Betray-Us" ad, insisting they did nothing out of the ordinary.

The Times' public editor, Clark Hoyt, now comes clean and admits the paper did indeed give MoveOn preferential treatment, charging the "standby" ad rate while also agreeing to run the ad on the date MoveOn desired. Ads which are for definite dates are normally charged at a much higher rate.

He says the paper also violated the paper's policy against ads which are "attacks of a personal nature."
