Egg on Their Faces: New York Times Retracts False Nikki Haley Smear. BY TYLER O'NEIL
Excerpt: On Thursday, the New York Times — America's newspaper of record — published a disgusting false smear against U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. The original article suggested Haley was responsible for spending $52,701 on curtains for the UN ambassador's house in New York City, when in reality the decision to purchase the curtains was made under former president Barack Obama. The Times appended a correction at the top of the article, altered the headline, and removed the photo of Nikki Haley. "Nikki Haley's View of New York Is Priceless. Her New Curtains? $52,701." the original headline screamed, complete with a featured picture of Haley at the United Nations. The original version of the article is unavailable, but a screenshot captured by the Washington Post's Aaron Blake revealed that the Times had substantially altered the article after receiving hefty criticism. (To boldly publish a sharp attack on Ambassador Haley accusing her of tremendous waste of taxpayer money without really checking into the facts is as dramatic a bit of evidence of utter, deep bias and strong desire to take down any and all associated with the Trump Administration. This would be scandalous from any media source, but from the supposed Queen of US newspapers it's way beyond that. And it pretty much confirms beyond question the corruption of the media giant. Why would anyone take their reporting on politics at face value anymore? -Del. There are enough real things to attack Trump on. Stuff like this only strengthens him with the voters who don't trust the media. ~Bob)
