LA Times passed on running Dylan Farrow's letter

dylan-farrow-by-frances-silver.jpgDylan Farrow's letter that ran on Nicholas Kristof's New York Times blog was shopped around first and turned down by the Los Angeles Times op-ed page. "We got it, we considered it, we ultimately decided not to use it,” said LAT op-ed editor Sue Horton. She denied an allegation made by The Wrap, based on an unidentified "insider," that Times editor Davan Maharaj killed the letter. "The editor of the paper doesn’t have a say in what goes on the op-ed page,” Horton said.

The New York Times is apparently pondering whether to publish a response to Farrow by Woody Allen. He has already said that his estranged, adopted daughter's account of sexual abuse by Allen when she was seven is untrue.
