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

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.18

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.

BUSTED! NY Times Suggests Nikki Haley Bought $52k Curtains, Actually Purchased by Obama Admin

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.18

The New York Times found itself in hot-water from readers across the country Friday after the newspaper published an extremely misleading headline regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

The Times published an article Thursday titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” suggesting the ambassador purchased lavish curtains for her New York City residence.

“The State Department bought the custom, mechanized curtains for Ms. Haley’s New York resident during a time of cost-cutting,” adds the author.

It isn’t until six paragraphs later that the author admits the window dressings were actually purchased in 2016 and authorized by the Obama administration.

“This seems like a pretty important paragraph that we should get to the bottom of before calling them ‘Nikki Haley’s $52,000 curtains,’” writes a reporter for the Washington Post.

ECHO CHAMBER: Dem Rep Calls for Probe into Nikki Haley After PHONY HEADLINE

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.18

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu called on his Congressional colleagues to launch an investigation into Nikki Haley and the State Department’s budget this week; saying “this is not okay” after citing a debunked New York Times headline surrounding the Ambassador.

“This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy,” tweeted the Congressman Thursday night.

Lieu fails to mention the article -while suggesting Haley purchased $52,000 curtains for her New York residence- admits six paragraphs later that the window-dressings were approved in 2016 by the Obama administration.
