Trump Pardons Media Baron Conrad Black, Who Authored Glowing Biography of Trump

HeadlineMay 16, 2019

President Trump has pardoned former Canadian press baron Conrad Black, a longtime political ally and former business partner who in 2007 was found guilty of fraud and obstruction of justice. Black, whom Donald Trump has described as a “friend,” wrote a glowing book about the president last year titled “Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other.” Black was convicted for fleecing millions of dollars from shareholders of his company, Hollinger International. His media empire included The Daily Telegraph in London, the Chicago Sun-Times, The Jerusalem Post, the National Post in Canada and 400 other newspapers.
