UPDATE: NY Times Issues Major Correction, Admits ‘UNFAIR’ Article Regarding Nikki Haley

The New York Times was forced to correct a previous article regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley Friday afternoon, saying the piece gave an “unfair impression” of the senior Trump official.

The initial article, titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701” came under fire after the author acknowledged the window dressings were purchased in 2016 under President Obama’s administration.

The Times issued a forceful correction hours later, changing the title to “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy.”

An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question. While Nikki R. Haley is the current ambassador to the United Nations, the decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration, according to current and former officials. The article should not have focused on Ms. Haley, nor should a picture of her have been used. The article and headline have now been edited to reflect those concerns, and the picture has been removed,” writes the Times.

This is very important. I’m so glad it was brought to our attention.

The NYSlime was so quick to smear her…but again that’s the Slime MO.

Yet they demonstrate more integrity than Trump and many of his supporters.

(Some I’m sure are good people)

So is the original story the “Fake News” or is the correction the “Fake News”?

Gee.

Isn’t it amazing how a media entity, a legitimate real news entity, corrects the record if they get it wrong and their mistake is brought to their attention?

Unlike the scumbag president we currently have that tweets out or blurts out any old lie or inaccurate piece of garbage and never ever retracts what he has lied about or fudged the facts about.

If he issued a “retraction” for every lie, untruth or inaccurate BS he spouted he wouldn’t have time for anything else.

There are no good liberals so “some” doesn’t apply to them.

Right. Enemy of the people or something. Isn’t that our title now?

should they not bother with correction?

what a shame what these news orgs have become

they smear. then pretend it was a mistake.
“oopsie” issued later after their smear was completed, knowing their damage is done

such a claim is not a simple journalistic error which is excusable. this was inexcusable. the claim had teeth and was obvioulsy meant to cut at Haley

a real journalist (or a non blatantly racist newly hired editorial board) would have checked this claim before running with it like a scalded dog

wonder if they will mention the anti-capitalism socialist ocasio-cortez’s 3000 dollar suit so her moron supporters will realize what morons they are

True. He would have to give up golfing and tweeting and rallies and admiring himself in the mirror.

Issuing a retraction is an admission of being inaccurate in the past. That is a weakness. It’s far better to double down on your untruth. Those who are inclined to believe you will continue to defend you because you are never wrong, just always unjustly attacked by those with TDS.

:laughing:

It’s a strength. It shows integrity and ability to alter course based on new information. Three things he is severely lacking.

Maybe if you’re a lib.

Conservatives like people who don’t need to alter course. Being right, regardless of the information, is paramount.

That’s Trump’s philosophy to a tee.
