That may be because the Sueddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) has an ongoing
cooperation with the NYT. For example, every Monday the SZ carries a
very nice additional section with articles from the NYT (in English,
of course).

I suppose, they could have just printed the NYT original, but why not,
e.g., put a special German spin on it? Besides, international
newsmakers (love the word!) pick up on competitors' material all the
time. Bad news if the first one out with a story has it wrong
(remember "Gore wins!" or, in Germany, the 'Hitler diaries' some years

Do any U.S. news products carry additions in any non-European language
other than English? Yes, I know, that's foreign matter to TAXACOM, and
probably too political ... ;-)
