NYT Botches Clinton Story

"We do things that are controversial. We do things that try to inflame their base...We are wasting time,” Hillary Clinton recently told a group of Democrat women in Arkansas. The New York Times reported that Clinton was speaking about Democrats when in fact she was speaking about the Republican Congress. The story has been circulated widely, linked on Drudge, and the Times apparently still hasn't retracted. As Atrios notes, "Kornblut makes it even worse by implying that Democrats are the ones bringing up gay marriage, when it's the goddamn Republicans who are doing so."

  1. Does the NYT write up articles based on Drudge Report alerts now? It's so obvious the author didn't look at the source material that it's almost hilarious.
