The New York Times is buying out the Washington Post and taking sole control of the Paris-based International Herald Tribune. The Post told its reporters Tuesday that it agreed to the sale only after the Times threatened to drive the Herald Tribune into ruin. The Times said the sale was by mutual agreement but had no response to the Post's charges, which represented a rare airing of dirty laundry between two newspaper titans.

Settling its second defamation suit in Singapore this year, the International Herald Tribune newspaper Monday agreed to pay $214,285 to Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew, state-run television reported. The amount was decided at a High Court hearing Monday, the report said. Lee was Singapore's prime minister from 1959 to 1990. The suit arose over an article published in October, 1994, that Lee's lawyers said alleged he had tried to suppress democratic political activity.

A billion-dollar project to build cars in southern China may turn out to be one of the country's biggest foreign investment flops. Panda Motors was the largest wholly foreign-owned enterprise approved in China. The U.S.-based company, with close links to the Korean Unification Church of Rev. Sun Myung Moon, planned to assemble 300,000 cars annually for export. Now the showpiece project has stalled.

William S. Paley, hailed as the father of modern broadcasting, hasn't been idle since his retirement 3 1/2 years ago from the CBS media colossus that he fashioned from a string of foundering radio stations. He has dabbled in artificial intelligence and biogenetics, overseen large art and newspaper interests, and helped set CBS policy as a member of the board.

The wizened sage sits alone upstairs in his secluded wooden house, massaging his temples in fatigue as he speaks to the camera. It's late afternoon, and he has been at it since 3 a.m., conducting his business by video linkup around the world: new schools in India, new meditation centers in Europe, a new medical curriculum for his university in Iowa.

A few weeks ago I arrived at Kennedy Airport in New York at 11:30 a.m. for a 1 p.m. flight to Los Angeles. The departures board indicated that the flight would be delayed three hours. I needed to be in California for an important 4 p.m. engagement. As other passengers began to panic, I headed for a phone. I connected my portable computer to the line and, by dialing a special number, airline schedules were soon displayed on the screen. An American Airlines flight was leaving at noon.

It was long the great gray lady of American newspapers, so conservative in its journalism that it refused to call homosexuals "gay" until two years after Rock Hudson died of AIDS--and wouldn't use the honorific "Ms." until 14 years after the magazine of that name was founded. The New York Times still hews to many of its traditions. It still doesn't publish a horoscope or comics or an advice to the lovelorn column, and it still identifies even terrorists and mass murderers as "Mr."

In late November, Disney announced that, despite Chinese threats, the company would go ahead with plans to distribute Martin Scorcese's coming film on the Dalai Lama, titled "Kundun." Since then, Disney has earned kudos from the U.S. media for standing up to Beijing. By putting principle ahead of potential profits, the Magic Kingdom ended up triumphing over the Middle Kingdom.
