In Saturday’s Times, Brian Stelter and Sarah Lyall wrote a front-page piece about Prince Harry and the Afghanistan embargo. They noted that:
The embargo was almost exclusively a British one, although The Associated Press, Reuters and CNN also joined the agreement. American newspapers including The New York Times were not made aware of the British press blackout.
I find it rather amusing, then, that on Friday Us Weekly ran a story online that said, in part: “In compliance with the Ministry of Defense, Us participated in a reporting embargo on Harry’s deployment but the news was widely posted after an item on the Drudge Report.”
HA! So the Times was “not made aware of the British press blackout,” but Us was. It actually makes sense—because honestly, when Us wants to find someone, they do, especially someone as prominent and popular as Prince Harry—I’m sure they knew about he was leaving practically before he did. But jeesh. What a world.
