English-Broadcasting Roundup of Bradley Manning Pardon Request
I checked the NY Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, NY Daily News, Washington Post, USA Today. None of them have, on their front page, the fact that Bradley Manning is requesting a pardon. The Wall St. Journal even suggested he left with some bad words for the President.
The front pages of Russia Today, the Guardian UK, both mention the pardon request in a separate story. Agence France Presse only headline is that Manning comforted his weeping lawyer. German Bild and Chinese Xinhua takes the U.S. line for their front page.
