    New York Times falls for fake Paris mayor letter

    New York Times falls for fake Paris mayor letter
    the Times said it had "violated both our standards and our procedures in publishing signed letters from our readers" because it had not verified its authenticity.
    LOL. What standards?
    If standards at The Red Wench were a high jump bar, an ant couldn't crawl under it.

    The NYT fell for something that's now referred to as "Pulling a Palin." ;-)
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Except that the NYT has the responsibility to fully vet its sources before choosing to publish something like this.

    Think if Sarkozy did call and she rebuffed it?


    As ladahai pointed out, it's the NY Times job to vet the news. They have the time. But all their layoffs must have left them down to one copy boy and no telephone lines.

    I was joshing. Yes, you are correct, The NYT does have that obligation.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
