Wherein The NYT Acts Like Anthony Weiner’s Cup
“For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers” sounds like an episode of a soap opera. In a way, it was; it was the name of a New York Times article that was published but then removed, because it was prematurely released.
The New York Times “inadvertently” posted an article on the women involved in Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal — and then deleted it.
“For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers” by Michael Barbaro was posted on the Times’s website Monday “before it was ready for publication,” according to a production note.
The Times article “For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers” is also referenced on Google News with the sentence, “For those on the other end of Anthony D. Weiner’s sexually explicit conversations, the episode damaged careers, disrupted educations.”
Times director of communications Danielle Rhoades Ha told POLITICO in an email, “This story was published inadvertently, before it was ready. As a general rule, we do not discuss stories in advance.”
So that means it will be published?
I can’t wait to read it. I’m sure they just had to finish copy editing or something and will have it right back online.
