'New York Times' Demands Fox Apologize For Islamic State Segment

'New York Times' Demands Fox Apologize For Islamic State Segment

The newspaper has claimed that the report is both "malicious and inaccurate".

The president chimed in after the segment aired Saturday, tweeting that The Times has a "sick agenda" over national security.

Thomas appeared to be referring to a New York Times report in June 2015 that detailed how American intelligence agencies had "extracted valuable information".

After taking a brief break in their respective corners to mop away the sweat, Fox News Channel and The tonight began another round of Competitive Insult Trading. Several media outlets reported about it at the time, including the Times and Fox News. "Unfortunately, it was leaked in a prominent national newspaper about a week later and that lead went dead", Thomas said.

Fox News "updated" its reports on Monday's Fox & Friends, and online, while firing back that "for all of their concern about accuracy, the New York Times didn't reach out to anyone at Fox News until Sunday afternoon for a story that ran Friday night", though that shot seemed to miss the mark.

The updated segment on "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning consisted of airing Thomas's comments again, and adding about 15 seconds dedicated to The Times's response. She said Baghdadi would have known about the capture from the Pentagon's announcement, not the Times story that ran three weeks after the raid.

"The Times described the piece to the Pentagon before publication, and they had no objections", NYT said in its statement to Fox News.

Minneapolis authorities have not released the woman's name. "She was treasured and loved and we will really miss her", Reed said. Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said the two officers were responding to a 911 call regarding a possible assault.

A New York Times spokesperson reached out to producers for the Fox News show "Fox and Friends", asking the network to apologize on-air and retract a story that claimed that a Times story fumbled plans for the U.S.to capture an ISIS leader in 2015.

The clarification was not sufficient for Rhoades Ha, who said it "wasn't an apology".

"You want a patriotic journalist", said the third host, Clayton Morris. Except whoops! No, they didn't, which forced Steve Doocy to do what he does best on Monday morning's show: grudgingly sort of clarify his network's bad reporting. Hegseth said the Times "is not just failing in its credibility".

Writer Eric Schmitt reported that American intelligence officials seized a wealth of data on "how the organization's shadowy leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, operates and tries to avoid being tracked by coalition forces".

The report referenced comments made by the head of the United States Special Operations Command Gen.

The New York Times' demand for an apology from Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ: FOX) is part of a long line of media mea culpas either granted or denied for slights real or perceived.

Fox, in a statement, said neither its initial report nor subsequent coverage on the air was inaccurate.
