The New York Times issued a correction on their article connecting Nikki Haley to the purchase of expensive curtains for the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the U.N.
The original version of the article by Gardiner Harris blamed Haley for the State Department’s decision to purchase $52,701 curtains for her residence.
"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." pic.twitter.com/Zs0Y6p6uB1

“Nikki Haley’s View Of New York Is Priceless,” the headline read. “Her Curtains? $52,701.”
The article explained in the sixth paragraph, however, that the decision to buy the curtains was made during the Obama administration and that Haley had no say in the matter.
