NY Times Stealth-Edits Article to Remove Embarrassing Obama Admission - Mediaite

If you read The New York Times‘ story on President Barack Obama‘s private meeting with news columnists Friday morning, you may have caught one quote that made the President look particularly bad:
In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments.
The President of the United States failed to understand that Americans were anxious after two major terrorist attacks in Western cities because he doesn’t watch TV?...

...But just as the quote was beginning to make the rounds, it disappeared entirely from the the Times piece, without a correction or any indication that the piece had been updated.

Instead, the paragraph in question has been replaced with the following, which doesn’t appear to have any connection to the original paraphrase:
“Mr. Obama argued that while there were potentially threats that would merit the kind of investment of lives and money equivalent to that made in the Iraq war, the Islamic State does not pose an existential threat to the United States and therefore the response should be measured. The United States needs to take on the group, in part to defend allies in the region, he said, but it should not be an all-out war.

Moreover, he added, part of the group’s strategy is to draw the United States into a broader military entanglement in the region. A sustained but limited campaign may be slow and politically unsatisfying, but ultimately will be more successful, he contended.”

How Iranian Women Dressed In The 1970s Revealed In Old Magazines




Iran has impounded tens of thousands of cars since March because women inside the vehicles had not properly covered their hair with a hijab, Tehran’s traffic police said Tuesday.

“Over the past eight months, more than 40,000 cases of bad hijab have been dealt with,” said Brigadier General Teymour Hosseini, quoted by Iran’s ISNA news agency.

“In most cases, the cars were impounded and cases were referred to the judiciary,” he said, while some of the women stopped could face fines or warnings.

Police warned in November that women who fail to observe hijab, the mandatory dress code in Iran, while driving would have their cars impounded for a week.

So what time does Tuesday's Republican debate start?







There’s currently a countdown clock during telecasts (“New Year’s Rockin’ Eve”-style), but the ticker winds down to 6 p.m. Tuesday, which is not even when the main event starts. It's merely the start of pre-debate analysis for the undercard debate, featuring long-shot candidates Mike Huckabee, Lindsey O. Graham, Rick Santorum and George Pataki. The main event with leading candidates including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson starts at 9 p.m.

Not that you can find that start time noted in many places. CNN’s original promo, which began airing before Thanksgiving, informed viewers that the debate would indeed begin at 9.

More recently, however, CNN has advertised the debates — plural — as starting at 6 and 8:30.

On CNN.com, a weekend news story bore the headline, “What time is the #GOPDebate? And everything else you need to know.” This allegedly helpful explainer article told readers that “CNN’s coverage of the first debate will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET and coverage of the second debate will start at 8:30 p.m. ET.” It even mentioned that “CNN will also offer a live stream of the debate on CNN.com’s homepage and across mobile platforms from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.”

So, you can tune in even earlier online! But you still can’t know what time the #GOPDebate really is.
