NYT Admits Its Front Page Climate Change Article Was Wrong

Once again NYT let it's biased and very partisan view damage the paper's almost nonexistence credibility.

NYT Admits Its Front Page Climate Change Article Was Wrong

http://dailycaller.com/2017/08/09/nyt-admits-its-front-page-climate-change-article-was-wrong/

The New York Times issued a correction to its Tuesday front page article, now admitting that the government climate report it “obtained” had actually been publicly available online for months.“An article on Tuesday about a sweeping federal climate change report referred incorrectly to the availability of the report,” TheNYT wrote in its correction issued Wednesday morning. “While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times.”

TheNYT ran a front page article Tuesday claiming to have exclusively obtained a draft climate report that “directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet” on global warming.

Unnamed scientists told TheNYT they feared the Trump administration would suppress the climate report. The report is part of the National Climate Assessment that’s released to the public every four years.

Climate scientists that worked on the report, however, were quick to point out it’s been online since January. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration published a copy of the report online in March.

Let's look at the substance of the report rather than the politics involved in it's release.
That is an obfuscation.

Before one casts stones about "credibility" lets' consider Perry and Price denying climate change is occurring, or the President calling it a "Chinese hoax"

Rather than sling mud back and forth on the politics, let's  focus,,,
What do you think of the findings and conclusions from these 13 agencies?
After all, this is NOT the politics section of the Board.

That the NYT rescinded the headline does nothing to change the report or the notion that many of the scientists believe this report will not be given its due regard. Given the stated ideas of the current Administration it IS likely that the scientists are totally correct.

It would be more appropriate to comment on the report and its substance. I doubt that will happen here however.
