New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan weighed in on Nicholas Kristof’s publishing Dylan Farrow’s open letter about Woody Allen’s alleged abuse.
But Ms. Sullivan largely avoided saying very much: she agreed with a reader, whose letter she ran, writing that she is “troubled” by some of the questions raised. And she linked to the also-controversial article about the allegations in The Daily Beast and urged “those who have not done so” to read it for essential context. (The New York Times)
