A reminder that Black wrote a column defending Faith Goldy (a white supremacist), among other heinous pieces I am not going to link to for obvious reasons.U.S. President Donald Trump has signed a full pardon for former media mogul Conrad Black, who was convicted in 2007 of fraud and obstruction of justice.
Black, 74, spent almost 3½ years in a Florida prison before being released and deported back to Canada. He had originally been sentenced to 78 months in jail, but had his sentence reduced after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down several of his initial convictions.
A statement from the White House on Wednesday said Black has made "tremendous contributions to business, as well as to political and historical thought."
