A spokeswoman for the New York Times has asked Fox News for an on-air apologize and tweet
The "Fox & Friends" report, which aired Saturday, triggered an outburst on Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) by President Donald Trump: "The Failing New YorkTimes foiled USA attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist, al-Baghdadi", the president wrote later Saturday. But it didn't seriously claim that General Thomas was talking about an article in some other newspaper. "Their sick agenda over National Security", Trump wrote in one of a barrage of early morning tweets.
But Fox did name The Times, repeatedly, with the caption "NYT foils United States attempt to take out Al-Bahgdadi;" one of the show's hosts Pete Hegseth, blamed the "failing New York Times" for leaking information.
Later on Monday, Fox News issued another statement that asserted no apology was warranted and reinforced Thomas' suggestion that Times report had an impact on the intelligence effort. Thomas said the raid garnered a valuable lead that could have led the U.S.to al-Baghdadi but it went cold after it was leaked "in a prominent USA newspaper" about a week later.
Fox News parried: "For all of their hyperventilating to the media about a correction, the New York Times didn't reach out to anyone at Fox News until Sunday afternoon for a story that ran Friday night".
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.
The newspaper said that before it published the story, it described the piece to the Pentagon, which did not object to the details.
In a wide-ranging interview moderated by Fox News' Catherine Herridge, Thomas, who leads the Special Operations Command, said his team was "particularly close" to Baghdadi after the 2015 raid that killed ISIS oil minister Abu Sayyaf.
The New York Times told Politico in a statement: "We have asked the White House to clarify the tweet".
The clarification was not sufficient for Rhoades Ha, who said it "wasn't an apology". "If you want to read the entire statement, it is posted on FoxNews.com". On Monday, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy issued an "update" on the matter, but not an apology.
That Times article said: "New insights yielded by the seized trove - four to seven terabytes of data, according to one official - include how the organization's shadowy leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, operates and tries to avoid being tracked by coalition forces".
The drama begins with this article, published by the Times on May 8, 2015. I don't know. But General Thomas, the head of all US special forces, believes that the Times article contained information that allowed al-Baghdadi to escape.
"Neither Fox News' report nor the subsequent on-air coverage was inaccurate".
