[Ed. – Not so much fun, huh, sweetcakes?]
The Hillary Clinton campaign sent a nearly 2,000-word letter to the executive editor of The New York Times this week expressing “grave concern” with a recent and controversial report relating to the former Secretary of State’s private email account.
“We remain perplexed by the Times’ slowness to acknowledge its errors after the fact, and some of the shaky justifications that Times’ editors have made,” Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri wrote in the letter to Dean Baquet, which the campaign forwarded to the On Media blog late Thursday night. …
The Times’ report, from July 23, claimed that two inspectors general had sought a criminal investigation “into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state.” It later altered the language to eliminate the suggestion that Clinton was the target in the potential criminal probe. Then, on July 24, all parties involved in the story—the two inspectors general, the Justice Department, and the Clinton campaign—issued public statements saying that the sought-after investigation was not “criminal.” Despite the overwhelming evidence, the Times did not remove the word from its headline and its story, nor did it issue a correction, until the following day.
