Can they really be asking this question? Indeed they can.
I’m looking for reader input on whether and when New York Times news reporters should challenge “facts” that are asserted by newsmakers they write about.
Apparently if they did this they would qualify as ‘truth vigilantes’. I would have used the word ‘reporters’.
(Thanks, Mr Jender. And thanks also for the many expletives with which you alerted me to the story.)
