NY Times Runs Same Story Two Ways

The NY Times owns the International Herald Tribune. IHT is a paper designed for American Ex-Pats that live in Western Europe. The local ABC affiliate in Houston has a report of the two different versions of the same story that the NY Times published in the NY Times and the IHT.

The Times explains.
Late Tuesday, a spokesperson for the New York Times told us the two online versions can differ because of different deadlines, but that, "The two versions are not substantially different. The thesis is the same: that Houston is benefiting from the situation in New Orleans."

The statement that appears in IHT and not in the NY Times?
"No one would accuse this city of being timid in the scramble to profit from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina."

Is a mad scramble the same thing as a thoughtful gesture?
