They issued a correction, as they should have.

I’d agree Haley is intelligent and appears to have a hell of a lot more integrity and principles than the rest of them.

However, extravagant spending and abuse of taxpayer money has kind of been a theme of Trump’s cabinet. Zinke, Price, Pruitt, Mnuchin, and the FEMA lad this week, off the top of my head.

A correction, (but not an apology from what I can tell).

And it wasnt like they were correcting a MISTAKE.....it was an intentional and deliberate attempt at  misrepresentation. 

As ive said here a thousand times, i believe about  as much of what i read in the NY Times as I do of what I read on Breitbart

Maybe the Times sees Haley as a threat to Elizabeth Warren down the road and are trying to get out in front of her

I haven’t seen the original article.

In what way was it an “intentional and deliberate attempt at misrepresentation”?

Because they led with a headline and a picture of Nikki Haley, yet nonchalantly admitted deep down in the body of the article that it in fact was a decision made back in 2016

Fair enough.

Sensational headline (which I would hope someone got a serious bollocking for, because, what’s the point, even if you didn’t care about honesty, especially with the Trump admin’s proven record?) but if you read the actual article you’d find that while she is the first to use it, it was ordered by Obama’s people.

I honestly hadn’t heard a single word about this before you brought it up.

As i have said from day 1, theres enough legitimate stuff to be outraged about......theres no need to make stuff up.

Making stuff up just helps Trump......told you so...NY Times.......FAKE NEWS!

On another note, if Kavanaugh gets on the Supreme Court next week, most conservatives I know will view this administration as a resounding success
