David S. Rohde

New York Times journalist David Rohde was kidnapped by the Taliban 7 months ago, but the story’s only just seeing the light of day, following Rohde’s daring escape from his captors. Keeping the story quiet was the result of a collaborative cover-up between The New York Times and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales to make Rohde seem unimportant to his Taliban kidnappers. Meanwhile, Wikipedia’s community is pissed. Free Speech debate!
