Skip to comments.NYT Offers Totally Inadequate Defense Of Story Comey Says Is False

Theres something odd about the explanation The New York Times offered for standing by a blockbuster report that former FBI Director James Comey characterized as almost entirely wrong in testimony before Congress Thursday.
Would it be fair to characterize that story as almost entirely wrong? Republican Sen. Tom Cotton asked Comey during the hearing. Yes, Comey replied. And at another point in the hearing he said of the report, in the main it was not true.
The paper of record reported Feb. 14 that U.S. intelligence officials had intercepted repeated communications between the Trump campaign and senior Russian intelligence officials in the year leading up to the election, based on accounts from four former and current U.S. officials. The news firmly planted the as yet totally unsubstantiated narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to sway the election in his favor.
Despite Comeys strongly worded statements, TheNYT announced Friday it had completed a review of the facts and would stand by the report in its entirety. The three reporters behind the story offered a dubiously reasoned explanation as to why in a separate piece that includes an odd admission about the review process no one was able to get in touch with the original sources.
The original sources could not immediately be reached after Mr. Comeys remarks, but in the months since the article was published, they have indicated that they believed the account was solid, the reporters wrote.

"But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and ALL LIARS (emphasis mine)they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. Revelation 21:8
Never gonna happen.
(unless you count the fact that they work for Carlos Slim now, including Pinch Sulzberger)
Where there’s Smoke, there’s some NYT Reporters hitting a Bong.
Wasn’t it because of the fake dossier that the whole Russian investigation started and FISA warrants were obtained?
Carlos Slim can not be happy with the morons running his newspaper.
Its like the dossier. Its been debunked. Wasnt 4chan punking them? Well now they are running with it and saying its true.
I remember when the NY Times was a highly regarded newspaper....a loooooong time ago
Who were the original former admin sources? John Podesta? Hillary Clinton? Valerie Jarett? The NYT is nothing but fiction. The world and the USA would be a much better place if this commie propaganda organ ceased to exist.
“The real big story here is that there is nothing to report.”
The real story is that they aren’t going to stop until Trump falls or they are stopped by force.
Either that or the whole silly stupid escapade will drag on meaninglessly for seven and a half more years. No evidence means they’re just that desperate to manufacture some.
Actually Walter Cronkite did when he was a closeted Communist all the years he was also the CBS anchor. Cronkite only admitted it after he retired. It's been all downhill since Cronkite's era.
Hang em high.
“Who believes Comey OR the New York Times?”
Now that is a tough question. Both are self serving ideologues.
