In a New York Times opinion piece meant to list lies told by President Donald Trump, the outlet published a falsehood of its own.
The op-ed published Friday, titled “Trump’s Lies,” includes the following correction: “An earlier version of this graphic included an incorrect total for the number of days Donald Trump told a lie during his first two months as president. It was 20, not 25.”
The New York Times has never published a “definitive list” of President Barack Obama’s lies.
“Trump’s Lies” received glowing praise Friday from Hollywood stars like Star Wars actor Mark Hamill and left-wing journalists like Lawrence O’Donnell and Kurt Eichenwald:
