The New York Times recently ended up being shamed into adding a correction to their story about a State Department expenditure for curtains that was clearly intended to give readers the impression that the purchase decision made by Nikki Haley and the Trump administration instead of the Obama administration.
On Fox News Thursday evening, Haley said the Times had all the facts but decided to put an anti-Trump admin spin on it anyway, which ended up just adding another item to the mountain of “fake news” examples:

The NY Times deserves every bit of ridicule and all the “fake news” accusations they’ve heard because of that story.
no doubt @nytimes have learnt their lesson and will never do anything like this again…

The New York Times recently asked readers to help provide examples of the media pushing misleading political stories, but it turns out that all they have to do is read their own paper.
