Dear Mr. Krugman:

     At the New York Times shareholders meeting on April 16, you were criticized for having said in one of your columns that the OIC's Whitewater probe "never found any evidence of wrongdoing" by the Clintons. Wrong! The OIC found lots of wrongdoing, but Robert Ray says repeatedly that the evidence was insufficient to convict them. Both the New York Times and Ken Starr have said that the White House was involved in the payment of hush money to Webb Hubbell. If Starr had referred that to Congress, Clinton would probably have been impeached and convicted. Mr. Sulzberger said that as a columnist you were free to express your opinions, but he did not disagree when it was pointed out that columnists, like reporters, should get their facts right. They should also correct their mistakes. I don't think you have corrected your error about what the OIC probe found. I would like to know if you intend to do so.
