NY Times Turns To Ireland To Protect Reporter

Consider this terrifying article in The Hill by US didn’t step in to protect reporter from arrest in Egypt so paper turned to Ireland

Burdryk notes that the Times could not rely on Trump to protect its reporter, so it turned to Ireland, which quickly moved to save the individual for possible arrest. He quotes Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger to say that, “Unable to count on our own government to prevent the arrest or help free Declan if he were imprisoned, we turned to his native country, Ireland, for help. Within an hour, Irish diplomats traveled to his house and safely escorted him to the airport before Egyptian forces could detain him.”

This should horrify anyone with an interest in a free press.
