Jane Pauley, formerly a co-host for the Today show, is suing the New York Times and DeWitt Publishing over an interview she says she was deceived into giving to a DeWitt Publishing employee last year. Ms. Pauley says she believed the interview was for a Times news piece. Instead, her remarks appeared in an advertising supplement and her photograph appeared on the cover of the supplement. The Times says Ms. Pauley's assistant was fully informed of the circumstances of the interview. Read more here in a Times article and here in an Associated Press/Hollywood Reporter article.
