Times Watch director Clay Waters appeared on Fox & Friends Friday mias orning to discuss the New York Times offering cheap ad space to MoveOn.org to bash General Petraeus as a betrayer of his country.   Fox News Channel’s Gretchen Carlson told Waters the Times now claims they offer this discount rate for advocacy groups and for ads that float without a scheduled publication date.

Waters said that “sounds plausible, but the thing is the ad itself, you read the ad itself, it says, ‘Today will General Petraeus become General Betray Us?’ which indicates it’s a pretty specific time frame.   And generally, there’s a pretty strict wall of separation between your business side and your editorial side.   As someone pointed out, if anyone is going to breach that wall, it would be the publisher of the Times, ‘Pinch’ Sulzberger.   He’s made, he’s a proud liberal.   He’s made his anti-war statements pretty publicly.   

The Times would be a logical choice for MoveOn.org.   That’s where their fans are.”
