Clinton campaign has “no evidence” for Russia hack conspiracy, NY Times admits in penultimate paragraph
(This article is published in Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting)
This one appeared on the front page of the US newspaper of record, under the hyperbolic headline “Russian Spies Said to Hack Clinton’s Bid”:
It is not until the 20th paragraph of the 21-paragraph article, on page A13 in the print edition, that the Times reveals a crucial point of clarification: Clinton “campaign officials acknowledge that they have no evidence” that Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to tilt the election to Donald Trump.
The 11th-hour detail might send readers, scratching their heads, back to the beginning.
