NY Times Blamed Dems for Shutdown, Then Gets Busted Switching Headlines to Protect Dems

Liberal bias is strong with the mainstream media. That’s not exactly a secret.

The New York Times correctly blamed Democrats for the government shutdown only to eventually switch their headline in an attempt to protect the left.


From Downtrend:

The New York Times had a rare slip up on Friday when it published a story correctly blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown.

It wasn’t long before the editors at “The Gray Lady” realized that they had slipped up and took corrective action to continue to hoodwink readers with its blatant liberal bias.

Daily Caller has more:

The original version of the NYT headline on an article reporting the news reads: “Senate Democrat Block Bill to Keep Government Open Past Midnight, Shutdown Looms.” The story went through various changes as negotiations on the budget deal broke down.

But a final version of the headline was published at 12:01 am and appears to dramatically downplay Democrats’ responsibility in the matter, according to an analysis The Daily Caller News Foundation conducted using NewsDiffs, a website that tracks changes made to high-performing articles.

The final version of the headline states: “Government Shuts Down as Bill to Extend Funding Is Blocked.” TheNYT altered the original article substantially as well. Editors nixed a sentence, for instance, noting that, “Senate Democrats blocked passage of a stopgap spending bill to keep the government open.”

NYT almost did something right.

Too bad they’re not an honest news source!
