To the Editor:
   This newspaper's breast-beating would evoke more sympathy if it were honest; it is not.  President Xi knows as well as we do that the New York Times suppressed the scoop on warrantless wiretaps for over a year rather than risking loss of a seat in tomorrow's White House press conference.  How much more might Xi extort on threat of keeping its reporters out of China entirely?
   We look to the New York Times for investigative reporting around the globe. But it should start by shining the light of honest inquiry onto its own past sins.
