New York Times admits creating 'unfair impression' about Nikki Haley's $53G curtains that were OK'd by Obama administration


New York Times walks back story slamming Nikki Haley
The Times issues correction for implying that U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley spent over $52,000 on curtains; reaction and analysis on 'The Five.'

The New York Times has added an editor’s note and changed the headline on a story that was widely criticized for reporting U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley has extravagant curtains in her official residence costing nearly $53,000, because the purchase was actually approved in 2016, under the Obama administration.

“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 editor’s note states.

"The decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration."

- New York Times

“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.”

The New York Times initially reported this week that $52,701 was spent last year on buying customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Haley’s New York City residence, for which rent is $58,000 a month. The paper didn't mention until the sixth paragraph that Haley's spokesman said the Trump administration had no input in the purchase decision.

Haley’s office declined Fox News’ request for comment.

The first version of the story was mocked across social media for appearing to place the blame on Haley. Earlier in the day, Donald Trump Jr. mocked the paper for the mistake, tweeting “It was Obama’s State Dept. Will you print a correction or just leave it as is because you want it to be true???”

Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey said the Times change is “pretty significant,” while HuffPost’s Yashar Ali called the original story “irresponsible.”

The news-making curtains themselves reportedly cost nearly $30,000, but the hardware needed to operate them cost an additional $22,801. The curtains were installed last year.

Patrick Kennedy, the top management official at the State Department during the Obama administration, defended the spending, saying the curtains will be used by future officials and cited security and entertainment purposes.

“All she’s got is a part-time maid, and the ability to open and close the curtains quickly is important,” Kennedy told the newspaper.

The State Department, under former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, had frozen hiring, reduced diplomatic staff and proposed cutting the department’s budget by 31 percent.

Fox News’ Adam Shaw and Lukas Mikelionis contributed to this report.

No she couldn't...

This was done under contract...any change would've resulted in a lawsuit and even more would've been paid...

Now tell us your opinion of the new York Times deceiving the public...

I think they are awesome for admitting their error and apologizing for it and printing the rest of the story:

Read their editorial note here at
The Awesome New York Times


Funny how FoxNews would make a critical spin story out of an honest newspaper story.
I notice the rw sites and papers who did print a retraction of the ACORN video buried it way down in the pages
And I have yet to hear an apology from FoxNews TV regarding their lying "embedded" reporter during the Saddam days. He was embed alright-in bed maybe in his hotel after he turned in a totally made up story to his boss who ran it.

There was no error. NYT either ran with a story without bothering to check the veracity or they ran with the story knowing it was false. They got caught with their pants down and issued an oopsie.

The NYT is awesome for intentionally lying and then apologizing after they get caught lying.

Anybody remember this?

In 1897, Adolph S. Ochs, the owner of The New York Times, created the famous slogan "All the News That's Fit to Print," which still appears on the masthead of the newspaper today. He wrote the slogan as a declaration of the newspaper's intention to report the news impartially.

The slogan is still there today. Adolph would be proud.
