Fact vs. Fiction

Arnaud de Borchgrave ought to get his facts straight ("Turnaround artist de Borchgrave focuses UPI on 'critical stories,"' Jan. 30, P. 14). There was no UPI when he was married on his lunch hour. He must have been working for the United Press Associations, who's logo was UP. It was in the 1950s that owner Scripps Howard acquired the name and goodwill of Hearst's INS and renamed UP UPI. (Hearst kept those great INS writers and created the supplemental wire Hearst Headline Service).

They are communicants of the Episcopal Church. Had de Borchgrave really made his claimed threat to Abe Rosenthal, the columnist might've corrected him.
