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.
