NYT publishes fake letter on Kennedy's senate bid
The New York Times has said a letter purporting to be from the mayor of Paris that attacked Caroline Kennedy's bid for a Senate seat was a fake.
The letter, which was signed with the name of Bertrand Delanoe and printed in Monday's paper, called Ms Kennedy's bid "not very democratic" and "appalling".
The New York Times said it had failed to check whether the letter, which was sent by e-mail, was authentic.
It said it had expressed its regrets to Mr Delanoe's office in Paris.
