Hillary Clinton's campaign complains of' 'egregious' New York Times reporting errors; says the Times 'took an inexplicable, let alone indefensible, delay in correcting the story and removing "criminal" from the headline and text of the story' - @politico
Editor's note: The New York Times has corrected its story on an inquiry into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Times says an earlier version of the story "misstated the nature of the referral to the Justice Department regarding" Clinton's account. "The referral addressed the potential compromise of classified information in connection with that personal email account. It did not specifically request an investigation into Mrs. Clinton," The Times says. We published an update on the original Times story, which has been clarified. - Stephanie
New York Times responds to critics of story on Berkeley balcony collapse; spokesperson says, 'We understand and agree that some of the language in the piece could be interpreted as insensitive, particularly in such close proximity to this tragedy. It was never our intention to blame the victims and we apologize if the piece left that impression' - @meganspecia
Editor's note: Several news outlets are blurring or cropping images of French newspaper Charlie Hebdo's controversial cartoons, BuzzFeed notes. The New York Times said they "do not normally publish images or other material deliberately intended to offend religious sensibilities," but will instead describe the cartoons. The Associated Press said "it's been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images." BuzzFeed's editor declined to comment on why the outlet is publishing the images, the report says. - Stephanie
The New York Times (NYT) is an American daily newspaper, founded and continuously published in New York City since September 18, 1851, by the New York Times Company. It has won 117 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organization.
The paper's print version has the largest circulation of any metropolitan newspaper in the United States, and the second-largest circulation overall, behind The Wall Street Journal. It is ranked 39th in the world by circulation. Following industry trends, its weekday circulation has fallen to fewer than one million daily since 1990. Nicknamed for years as "The Gray Lady", The New York Times is long regarded within the industry as a national "newspaper of record". It is owned by The New York Times Company. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr., (whose family (Ochs-Sulzberger) has controlled the paper for five generations, since 1896), is both the paper's publisher and the company's chairman. Its international version, formerly the International Herald Tribune, is now called the International New York Times.
The paper's motto, "All the News That's Fit to Print", appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page. Since the mid-1970s, it has greatly expanded its lay-out and organization, adding special weekly sections on various topics supplementing the regular news, editorials, sports and features. Recently it has been organized into sections: News, Editorials/Opinions-Columns/Op-Ed, New York (metropolitan), Business, Sports of The Times, Arts, Science, Styles, Home, and other features. On Sunday, it is supplemented by sections of The Week in Review, The New York Times Book Review, The New York Times Magazine and recently T: The New York Times Style Magazine. The New York Times stayed with the broadsheet full page set-up (as some others have changed into a tabloid lay-out) and an eight-column format for several years after most papers switched to six, and was one of the last newspapers to adopt color photography, especially on the front page.
