We told you earlier that TWT‘s John Solomon was upset by an article on the front-page of the New York Times. The article by Jim Rutenberg and Jackie Calmes said that TWT was “decidedly opposed to Mr. Obama.”
FishbowlDC has now obtained another internal TWT memo that says that the NYT has apologized and will issue a correction in tomorrow’s paper. Solomon’s memo below:
I’m glad to report that the New York Times has formally called to apologize and will be running a correction in tomorrow’s paper. The Times’ Washington bureau chief, Dean Baquet, wanted me to personally pass along his apology. He also shared these words with David Jones: “I would never say your paper has been anything but absolutely fair and objective to Obama.” We agree and accept the Times’ apology.
