WHY THE TIMES IS THRU……

New York Times walks back story slamming Nikki Haley

The Times issues correction for implying that U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley spent over $52,000 on curtains; reaction and analysis on ‘The Five.’

The New York Times has added an editor’s note and changed the headline on a story that was widely criticized for reporting U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley has extravagant curtains in her official residence costing nearly $53,000, because the purchase was actually approved in 2016, under the Obama administration.

“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 editor’s note states.

“The decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration.”

“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.”
