"NY Times, Reuters Whitewash US Drone Strike Killing of Mehsud From Taliban Reasons for Karachi Airport Attack":
"The New York Times and Reuters, however, chose to be very selective in how they reported the TTP’s claim of responsibility.

By contrast, AP and the Washington Post included the TTP’s reference to the drone strike."
