Readers tweeted out pictures of this morning’s edition of the New York Times in Pakistan, which displayed nothing in the space that many think should have contained a story on what Pakistan knew about Osama bin Laden.

The New York Times story in question can be found here.

    They should have simply presented yet ANOTHER photo of our POTUS golfing . . . again next to Putin receiving standing ovation from his people

    • bungopony

      “Ya say ya wanna revolutio-on,we-ell,y’know…”(that is from TWA,isn’t it?)

  • Matthew Koch

    They put in a picture of the cover of the White Album?

    • Zathras11 @B5

      Didn’t they?

    • The Demon Slick

      The original was a picture of The Emperor In His New Clothes.
      Early editions were covered by a blank white sticker, if you have one of those they’re going for big bucks.

  • Super Marsupial

    For a moment I genuinely thought it was the actual NYT blanking an article showing Obama in a -ve light. i.e. a real news report

    • ToyZebra

      The NYT wouldn’t blank an article negative to Obama because they would never allow it to be submitted in the first place.

  • Maxx

    It was actually a story listing all of Barack Obama’s accomplishments as President.

      Well, you can still see his mom jeans.

      New York times: selective reporting home and abroad..

    • The Demon Slick

      A rare case where the comment section is more hilarious than the tweets. This and white wash cracked me up.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Sorry, Ma’am we empathize, and we too are embarrassed by this lazy bored boy in our Whitehouse…Really, we too hope we last until Jan. 2017…And the ROE in Afghanistan, has caused us more loss of heroes, too, and he does nothing about it, and we are more than aghast…!

    We will not allow a white flag planted on her soil…

  • JeffWRidge

    In other words there is little difference between how the regular New York Times handles negative stories about Obama and how the International New York Times handles stories that might embarrass the government of other countries?

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      In Pakistan, they spike negative stories about Osama.
      In the US, it’s negative stories about Obama.
      Got it.

      • bungopony

        Well,it IS pretty straightforward.Unlike…

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    You wonder why (per the box in the upper left) they couldn’t have blanked out Paul Krugman as well. He’s offensive EVERY time he appears in the Times.

  • CobraJet428

    What’s so offensive? To a Free People, nothing.
    To bow-tie wearing, pointy-headed snob elitist intellectual editors whose goal is to keep alive an illusion from their insulated bubble who don’t want a scimitar across their throats, well, that’s easy.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Ah, I see the administration has released the Obamacare data of who’s been paying.

  • John Ansell

    Sloppy printing, that’s all. Look, I think I see the 777.

  • RanierWest

    I thought it could have been that MH370 story linked to being in Pakistan. but that was close!

  • Dirty Dutch

    Uh, you thought maybe something different from Pock e ston?

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Ok, Pakistan sensors news? And?
    In other breaking news; Iran persecuted gays.

    • bungopony

      “persecuted”?Sure glad they’ve quit that nastiness.No wonder our official LGBTetc.’s are so quiet.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        Typo, should be persecutes.

        • bungopony

          Then,why ARE our official LGBTetc.’s so quiet?

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Because now everybody will be forced to bake them a cake and thats what really counts. /

  • gena123

    The irony of the first sentence: How can the US fight extremism when it can’t confront it where it lives……. NY Wussies!

  • descolada9

    At least with the paper in Pakistan they are obvious about what they are covering up. With our media in the States, not so obvious to most people.

    • Yeah Buddy

      What? Are you saying our press is censored?
      Not possible… I thought I was being told everything.

  • iVillageIdiot

    How cute. The NYT used the space to list Obama’s foreign policy–or any other–accomplishments.

  • TJ

    Not even in Soviet Union world they censor it by giving a blank page they would have censored the whole paper and you get nothing.

  • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

    Here they just replace what they don’t want you to know with fluff about what Michelle O wore to her latest magazine cover shoot.

  • DStewart

    The New York Whines, all the news that’s fit to omit!

  • uhohChongo

    I’m sure Kim and Kanye’s pic would have been a hit there.

  • pdigaudio

    What does Pakistan (or, as the Celebrity in Chief says, PAH-kee-stahn) know about the missing Boeing 777?

    • Ken Alan Draper

      It’s holed up in a compound in abbottabad. quick! send some more top secret technology to leave for the chinese to copy.

  • Worship Dancer

    now that would just make me curious & send me searching for what was removed.

    • Snap N McGarrett

      Such curiosity will get your head removed in Pah-kee-stahn.

      • Worship Dancer

        true but there are ways.

  • TheRMSDave

    I’d prefer a blank section to the fluff they put in our papers in lieu of reporting on stories like the lies regarding Benghazi, for instance.

  • The Demon Slick

    But it’s ok, because, because. … Obama!

    They put in a list of Obama’s accomplishments instead, I see.

    “All the news that fits our views”

  • Oilfart1

    Uh, so what else is new? This is where BO and his minions Hope agenda goes. Their desire is to decide what news is news. Remember the published then cancelled plan to put minders in newsrooms?

  • tedlv

    If I magnify it I can’t read it. What does it say?

  • tedlv

    I get it! Polar bear in a snow storm. Problem is, the wackos think polar bears are extinct. They are thriving…

  • jtak101

    Well..yea….we wouldn’t want to offend our pals in Pakistan!!

  • Dale

    And I thought it was going to be a picture of the Malaysian Flight 370

  • Sam Sewell
  • cscape

    Pakistan’s control of their media is only marginally tighter than the Obama Admin’s

  • Its_My_Fault

    Looks just like a reprint Obama’s foreign policy to me…

    • prado4587

      All we’d see is how Nobama forced his diplomacy on Syria and in getting Osama over the objections of the American people

  • Kevin Jackson

    We can only DREAM about having more of the New York Times blanked out here in the US! Those lucky Pakistanis…

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    It was supposed to be a picture of a dangerous YouTube video.

  • Jeff Allen

    How much in foreign aid do we give this $hit hole?

  • iconoclast

    NYT is just following in the footsteps of CNN in protecting the sensibilities of US enemies.

    • RanierWest

      no they don’t follow in this respect… they’ve led notably since the 1930’s

      • GaryUSMCvet.

        Correct — a real propaganda piece for the Hilter machine.

  • soxfan4evah

    If they read the fine print it says successes of the Obama Administration

  • rjstange

    This type of censorship sends “tingles” up Obama’s leg. He is jealous. This is on his bucket list.

  • Lou Bator

    So, moslems, can’t live with them…might as well get rid of them!

  • http://proof-proofpositive.blogspot.com/ Mike

    I thought maybe it was a summary of everything known for sure about flight MH 370!

  • notpilgrims2

    The article wasn’t published in Pakistan because the Pakistani government doesn’t like articles that are critical of its relationship with al-Qaeda published.

  • Mount Rockula

    i imagine if you live in pakistan, a problem with your liberal paper is like the LEAST of your problems.

  • SpiffyMclure

    Pakistan is not our ally and never have been. ISI officials were connected to 9/11 from the get-go, they’re in bed in with the Taliban and US-hatred is country-wide (not just in the northern ‘tribal’ regions as asserted by US media.) It’s obvious that Pakistani military harbored Bin Laden – he lived down the road from a huge military installation, so it’s not terribly surprising this story was censored. I’m thinking production files are shipped digitally and printed locally but I’d be interested in where the censorship took place and at the behest of whose orders.

  • TroubleAtTheMine

    the only reason it doesn’t happen so literally here is because the media is in the government’s pocket already

  • john q public

    If the NYT was not allowed to run the original story by the Pakistani government, then running emptiness is actually a very good way to protest the censorship without actually violating the law.

  • DutyFirst

    Don’t you get it, the President of Pakistan actually ‘knows’ stuff and doesn’t have to read it in the newspaper.

  • RalphTheCat

    Great newspaper. Cough, cough.
    .
    They might gain an iota of respect if they published and took pictures of their newspapers being burned by the Pakastani government.

  • Paul C.

    Did Obama order that blank?

    • http://commentspammersmustdie.blogspot.com/ Kakarot

      More likely the NY Times did it on their own. The only question is did the order come from someone in Pakistan, or the main offices in New York?

  • CountMahdrof

    All The News That’s Fit To Print . unless, of course, that news might offend Muslims who will then threaten to behead us..

  • Sheri Watson

    At least they know an article was censored. Here they act like nothing is going on with our government.

  • stewedhamm

    but they let the Krugman column through? ouch.

  • http://yourdaddy.net/ NotaLemming

    This is proof enough that the White House tells them what to print, When to print it.
    Coercion of State or Complicity of the Media. Either way it is worthy of jail time for all parties involved.

  • Ken

    Before reading the comments I was going to guess it was supposed to be a list of whatever Constitutional clauses that the pResident had not yet violated.

  • Dave O’Neill

    That’s what you get with this president. First an empty chair, now this.
