The Ford statement was widely commented upon by the Austrian press. Some of the editorials see the reasons for Ford’s recantation in the probable outcome of Aaron Sapiro’s libel suit against him. Other papers praise Ford for his manly act, although they term this a rather belated recognition of the truth. Other editorials advise the anti-Semitic leaders to look for new sources of financial support. Still others say that the Ford statement was nothing but a publicity stunt.
