‘Just NOW?’ Believe it or not, NYT’s Nikki Haley faceplant just got MORE embarrassing; UPDATED

We’d tell the New York Times to call their office, but the hackery is coming from inside the house. So it wouldn’t do them any good.

After beclowning themselves in epic fashion over the pricey curtains in Nikki Haley’s residence — curtains Haley did not buy — they’ve got a monster cleanup job ahead of them. The job is reportedly underway now:

Spox for @nytimes tells me that editors “are reviewing” the @nikkihaley curtain story.

This is the story where headline said Haley spent 50k + on curtains that were decided on during the Obama admin https://t.co/HrPtoUxbFa

“Reviewing” the story.

Now, we’re no Real Journalists or anything, but their procedure seems … off.

Just now?

— Nick Brown (@nwbvt) September 14, 2018

So they didn’t already? https://t.co/WzVvZTW26P

Maybe the editors should have “reviewed” BEFORE publishing the story.

Always a strong move after publication https://t.co/YJpFueARZG

Don’t hey have editors to review it before publishing https://t.co/HsPzKDxBeZ

— Mujahed (@kebejay) September 14, 2018

they’re supposed to do that *before* it’s published https://t.co/6zFgS2gvZJ

Pro tip: that’s what they’re supposed to do before the story gets posted pic.twitter.com/6quwBLEjrW

— Amber Athey (@amber_athey) September 14, 2018

Shouldn’t they do that before the story is published?

— Philippe (@CA_Sprinkles) September 14, 2018

Aren’t they supposed to do that BEFORE publishing it?

— Lisa (@Lisa_L_Reynolds) September 14, 2018

Maybe they should start doing that before they hit the tweet button? https://t.co/3NIKX2sX6w

I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be done before the story is reported.

What a disgrace.

Show’s over, New York Times. It’s curtains for you.

Update:

Well, it looks like the New York Times’ “review” has concluded:

New: The New York Times has updated its story on @nikkihaley: “An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question.” pic.twitter.com/GQg7Bj0qfv

— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) September 14, 2018

Okay, credit where it’s due. This is a good and thorough walkback, @nytimes. pic.twitter.com/XVmGazjFGt

— Daniel Foster (@DanFosterType) September 14, 2018

It’s very nice and all, but wouldn’t it have been more good and thorough to actually vet the article before it was published? Or, even better, just not have even written it in the first place?

Why does the NYTs even have editors if they have to correct every story after it’s published? https://t.co/8zDtxBxjk6
