**Update: I originally used the word “retraction” in the title for this post. I’ve changed it to reflect Andrew’s descriptive of “correction” which does seem more accurate considering how and where it was placed in their article.**
Tea Party Patriots everywhere owe Andrew Breitbart a big Thank You. He responds to the curious retreat of the NYT.
Buried at the bottom of a story published the other day, the New York Times printed a curious little correction:
The Political Times column last Sunday, about a generational divide over racial attitudes, erroneously linked one example of a racially charged statement to the Tea Party movement. While Tea Party supporters have been connected to a number of such statements, there is no evidence that epithets reportedly directed in March at Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, outside the Capitol, came from Tea Party members.
Let’s go over that again:
* The Times is admitting that there is absolutely no evidence that any epithets were shouted at the Congressman by any member of the Tea Party.
* This correction demonstrates we have finally proven our point to the nation’s most eminent and influential liberal media organ: that Rep. Andre Carson lied when he told the AP that members of the Tea Party hurled the “N-word” 15 times during the March 20 health-care rally that took place at the U.S. Capitol.
That’s great, as far as it goes – a thorough vindication of the Tea Party — but it doesn’t go far enough.
As they say, of course, read the whole thing.
