Censorship in The International New York Times

Saturday’s edition of The International New York Times (formerly The International Herald-Tribune) had an above-the-fold story censored by the government of Pakistan. Sometimes “censored” means that certain details in an article are redacted, but in this instance it means the entire article was stripped out of the front page with unapologetic starkness.

The missing article was a story by Carlotta Gall about the links between Osama Bin Laden and Pakistan that ran in this week’s Sunday Magazine. The image above was taken from a report on the censorship at The Verge.
