NYT editor: White House appreciated our handling of WikiLeaks 'War Logs' story

The Upshot
"I did in fact go the White House and lay out for them what we had," Times Washington bureau chief Dean Baquet tells Michael Calderone. "We did it to give them the opportunity to comment and react. They did. They also praised us for the way we handled it, for giving them a chance to discuss it, and for handling the information with care. And for being responsible."
