Fact Check: The Nikki Haley Curtain Kerfuffle

Friday afternoon, the Times added an editor’s note to the report:

An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question. While Nikki R. Haley is the current ambassador to the United Nations, the decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration, according to current and former officials. The article should not have focused on Ms. Haley, nor should a picture of her have been used. The article and headline have now been edited to reflect those concerns, and the picture has been removed.

Caught out lying, eh? It's always been a dull paper; has it always been mendacious?

(Answer: only when it's been written by journalists.)
