The New York Times on Friday corrected a story that previously suggested U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was responsible for $52,701 window treatments in her New York office, even though the decision to buy them was made during the Obama administration.
“An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question,” the editor’s note said. “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 goes on to state the following:
A spokesperson for Haley said that she did not have any input on the purchase of the customized, mechanized curtains.
The evolution of the headline:
Original: “Nikki Haley’s View of New York is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701.”
Second: “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Nikki Haley’s Residence.”
Current: “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy.”
