The New York Times' public editor, Margaret Sullivan, wrote Wednesday that she spoke with the newspaper's editorial page editor, Andrew Rosenthal, about the possibility of publishing Allen's op-ed response.

Rosenthal told Sullivan that it's unusual for the Times to publish such a piece as an op-ed, but "In this case, it was so personal, we thought that we should.”

The editorial page editor said that whether the Times will publish the piece or not will come down to the editing process, but told Sullivan that it could appear within the next few days.

Allen's publicist and attorney denied Farrow's claims after her open letter was published.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
