In Truth, Justice, Abortion and the Times Magazine - New York Times, readers' representative Byron Calame finds that the April 9, 2006, cover story in The New York Times Magazine did not meet the standards that readers of The New York Times should expect. The article claimed that a woman named Carmen Climaco was sentenced to a 30-year jail term in El Salvador for having had an abortion, when court records show that she was found guilty not of an abortion, but of having a full-term live baby and then strangling it. Calame also doesn't think the reaction to early complaints about the article were handled well.
Hats off to The New York Times for publishing Calame's column on this.
