Amazingly insightful piece of writing that narrates how a title on the times gets published causing major backlash. The article is investigative, provides historical context about how things have changed in the times in the years, and gives the reader a behind the scenes of the happening. While keeping the Times accountable, the author manages to remain unbiased and critical throughout the piece.

When most had a quick judgment because of their own personal bias, this author investigates into the workings leading up to and after the headline from the Times. A very contextual article with quotes from the Executive Editor of the Times.

This is some incredible investigative work by Gabriel Snyder to hold The New York Times accountable. Gabriel is a Credder Advisor (full disclosure), but regardless of my relationship with him, this is some great work to uncover more about how the news is being made. Moments like this help explain the Times surprisingly low 63% User Rating.
