    This Wednesday, May 2, 2012 photo shows a copy of the New York Times published on May 8, 1945, at the home of Julia Kennedy Cochran, daughter of former AP Paris bureau chief Ed Kennedy, in Bend, Ore. Kennedy was dismissed by The AP after he became the first journalist to file a firsthand account of German officials surrendering unconditionally to Allied commanders at a former schoolhouse in Reims, France. Sixty-seven years later, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Curley said that Kennedy was right to stand up to the censors, and should have been commended, not fired. Cochran said she was ?overjoyed,? that the AP had taken an interest in exonerating him. ?I think it would have meant a lot to him,? she said. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

    Eric Weltman, an organizer for Food & Water Watch, speaks during a protest against Wal-Mart on the steps of City Hall in New York April 24, 2012. Renewed action against Wal-Mart opening stores in New York City has started as it grapples with a bribery scandal that has led to more than $10 billion being cut from its market value. On Saturday, the New York Times reported that a senior Wal-Mart lawyer received an email from a former executive at Wal-Mart de Mexico in September 2005 that described how the Mexican affiliate, known as Walmex, had paid bribes to obtain permits to build stores in the country.
