New York Times Reporter Tweets Embarrassing Observation About C-SPAN During Benghazi Testimony

Media

"How did you get your job?"

A New York Times political reporter tweeted an embarrassing observation about C-SPAN as the network covered Hillary Clinton's testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi Thursday.

Michael Barbaro, who covers the 2016 campaign for The Times, wrote that it was "telling" C-SPAN was "encouraging" Democrats and Republicans to call in on separate phone lines.

Only problem? Any regular viewer of C-SPAN could tell you the network has done this for years. Users were quick to point this out to Barbaro.

Later, Barbaro wrote to the "CSPAN geeks" that he now understood "they do that all the time."
