About that non-apology from the New York Times « Hot Air

By Hot Air, Nov. 13, 2016 

Earlier this week, John Sexton wrote about “the unbearable smugness of the media” with a specific focus on CBS News’ Will Rahn. His critique of his own profession was almost admirable and no doubt caused a number of other media outlets to engage in some navel gazing. There was another admission of sorts this week coming from the New York Times. The editors sent out a letter which only went to their paid subscribers and in it they supposedly address some of their shortcomings in covering the 2016 election. This led Michael Goodwin at the New York Post to describe the missive as an admission that the Gray Lady “blew it” throughout the process and others have chimed in along similar lines. I’m not sure what letter they read, but I’m not seeing it that way at all. I’m going to begin by reprinting the letter here in its entirety since it’s rather short. You should be able to judge for yourself rather than taking an excerpted section from me.
