White House demands correction from NYT

But the important part of this story is…the White House did NOT demand a correction to the language in the main body of the writeup. From the Editor and Publisher article:

One of the top national stories of the day is the front-pager in The New York Times which suggests that White House involvement in the controversy surrounding the destruction of the CIA “torture tapes” was much wider than previously known.

The White House has kicked back against the Times on various other front-page reports in recent years but today it has asked for something specific: a “correction” of the headline’s deck.

The Hill, the Washington, D.C. newspapers, reports, “Catherine Mathis, senior vice president of corporate communications for the newspaper, stated that the sub-headline has been changed, adding that a correction would be printed. However, Mathis also pointed out that the White House did not challenge the contents of the article.” (emphasis mine)

Ain’t that special? 😉
