Book Review: "Buried by the Times"


A review of Laurel Leff's new book ("Buried by the Times: The Holocaust and America's Most Important Newspaper") criticizing the New York Times for downplaying news of the Holocaust appears in today's New York Sun. Reviewer Ira Stoll describes it as "a fascinating biography of the man [Arthur Hays Sulzberger]who ran the Times during World War II and presided over what the paper has since acknowledged was its own botched coverage of the Nazi extermination of European Jewry". Read more about how a man clearly uncomfortable with his heritage managed to negatively influence crucial news coverage of that catastrophical time.
