NYT: Carlos Slim is a thief, a robber baron, and ... a wonderful human being

TimesWatch notes today that the New York Times has decided that Mexican mogul Carlos Slim ain't so bad after all:
Carlos Slim, described in 2007 as a "thief" and "robber baron" by a Times editorial writer, is now "a very shrewd businessman with an appreciation for great brands," according to the paper's publisher. What changed? A $250 million loan from Slim to the NYT Co., for one.
I guess Rupert Murdoch now knows what he needs to do to get some good press from the Times.
