On Tuesday, The New York Times ran a front-page story featuring a draft climate change report that was “obtained” by The Times, and a not-so-subtle accusation that the Trump administration was planning to prevent the public from seeing it.

However, it turns out that the draft report had already been available online for months before The Times “obtained” it, and was easily available for anyone interested in reading it. How The Times tried to fix the foul-up is simply shameful.

Suppress - Report - Months - Someone - BS

Suppress a report that had already been public for months? It didn’t take long for someone to call B.S. on the inaccurate reporting.

Even other mainstream media outlets called it out.

Washington - Post - Media - Erik - Wemple

In The Washington Post, media critic Erik Wemple wrote that although Times Times attached a correction to the bottom of the piece, “given the magnitude of the ****-up, it should sit atop the story, surrounded by red flashing lights and perhaps an audio track to instruct readers: Warning: This story once peddled a faulty and damaging premise.”

Wemple also cited several claims in The Times piece that were both inaccurate and leading and spoke to the liberal agenda rather than true journalism. These instances include:
