“It makes it appear that they did it for the money,” said Jane Kirtley, who teaches media ethics and law at the University of Minnesota. “If judges can get these news organizations by the balance sheet, they’re going to yield. For Time Warner not to rally round the crown jewel of their empire to support a journalist is appalling.”

Mr. Pearlstine said financial considerations played no role.
