  •  Will there be any accountability here? (5+ / 0-)

    This reporter is responsible for the spread of misinformation, which altered the National debate in a dishonest way. The article was one that could be cited being from a "reliable source," i.e., the New York Times. And that's the way the NYT's credibility gets eroded.
     Action is called for in terms of accountability, but also in terms of reviewing and tightening standards. The apologetic piece by the Editor is only a start. Let's see if they treat it that way.

      and Emptywheel's exposure of them right next to each other. It really highlighted the lies.

      I think the days are long behind us when the Gray Lady could be called a "reliable source", her lies have become compulsive.

      The NYT has become the Old Gray Crackwhore, and she's in desperate need of rehab.
