Is this the start of a new trend? Is this the birth of possibly more honest reporting? Or is merely a one-off event that we conservatives can point to and say, “see, we told you sold.”
I’m going to opt for the latter.

New York Times reports on right wing conspiracies – then issues an epic correction
The New York Times was mocked on social media over a correction made Tuesday that revealed a bias many allege the news outlet has against conservatives.
Here’s what they corrected
In article detailing the role of Campbell Brown as the head of news partnerships for Facebook, technology reporter Nellie Bowles inserted an example of the “far-right conspiracy programming” that is still found on the social media behemoth.
“…Ms. Brown wants to use Facebook’s existing Watch product — a service introduced in 2017 as a premium product with more curation that has nonetheless been flooded with far-right conspiracy programming like ‘Palestinians Pay $400 million Pensions For Terrorist Families’ – to be a breaking news destination,” the paragraph read.
“That is not a conspiracy theory.”
But after much ridicule online, the article was edited to excise the claim, and a correction was added.
