The Washington Times is standing by the authenticity of an op-ed by Bangladesh's opposition leader, Khaleda Zia, that has kicked up a storm in parliament in Dhaka.
Veteran journalist David S. Jackson has been named the new executive editor of The Washington Times, President and CEO Larry Beasley announced Wednesday.
Mr. Jackson said that before the article was published, The Times had been in touch with Mr. Pursey and it was clear that he was in contact with Mrs. Zia and that the article represented her views.
The article, published Jan. 30 in The Times, "was submitted to us by Mark Pursey, a London-based intermediary acting on behalf of Begum Khaleda Zia," said The Times' Executive Editor David S. Jackson.
