New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet again found himself defending the paper’s Hillary Clinton coverage on Sunday.
Responding to accusations that the Times is unfair to Clinton and her campaign, Baquet acknowledged the Times’ screw-up on a recent story — which the Times corrected — that erroneously claimed a criminal inquiry was being sought into Clinton’s email usage during her time as secretary of state.
While that story “fueled” criticism about the Times’ Clinton coverage, said Baquet during an interview on CNN, “We’re aggressive on all the candidates.” He likewise emphasized the breadth of the Times’ Clinton coverage.
