NYT Denies Sulzberger-Kennedy Rumor

In response to rumors about an improper relationship between New York Times publisher Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger and would-be senator Caroline Kennedy, the newspaper has issued a statement: “Mr. Sulzberger is not and never has been romantically involved with Ms. Kennedy.” Gawker led the charge to connect the odd couple; Page Six offered an alternate Sulzberger-lover, a “vivacious woman” by the name of Helen Ward. Asked for comment, Ward responded enigmatically: “There is only one woman in Pinch Sulzberger’s life, and that is the Gray Lady.”
