The New York Times created a stir on Thursday when it published a scathing editorial, slamming the Obama administration for its drastic domestic surveillance efforts. The “administration has lost all credibility,” it read.
But it was only a few hours before the Times quietly altered that harsh statement, adding the words “on this issue.” Though a small change, it completely changes the meaning of the sentence.
This is what is currently displayed on NYTimes.com: “The administration has now lost all credibility on this issue.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity caught the sneaky edit and slammed the publication for once again caving to protect President Obama.
“It’s interesting, The New York Times for a few hours tonight actually had it right,” he said. “They said the president has lost all credibility, and then they couldn’t leave it. They just had to add ‘on this issue’ hours later.”
