While no individual or
organization should be above criticism, that directed at Conrad Black
lacks all proportion and reeks both of hypocrisy and pettiness. As he
contends, he would not have been convicted nor likely even charged in
Canada, and was convicted not on the basis of any specific U.S. law but
on a general principle subjectively and, in his case, erroneously
interpreted: his actions in themselves did not harm Hollinger Corp.
What is obvious is that
Mr. Black has more courage than 100 of his detractors put together, and
that is probably at the heart of all the malice.
