Lame Gray Lady: NYT Scrubs Major Portion of Original Obama-Olympics Article, Inserts Meeting with McChrystal | NewsBusters.org.  We are at war with Oceania.  We have always been at war with Oceania.

I try not to wave the Orwell flag too often for a variety of reasons, but this truly rises to that level in my book.  If you publish a story online, then that story should be treated as a print story would for corrections of fact. Wholesale revision of a story after publication is unwise at best and stinks of cronyism.

It has traditionally been one of the arguments of mainstream media that the internet is an untrustworthy source of news because there are no standards for how that information will be handled.  It appears that the critics may have been correct.

Hat tip to Reynolds.
