It is weird that you say Trump's Baku nonstory is a waste of effort while thinking that the NYT change is worth your time.

But nothing new came to light at all other than Donald Trump making a stupid tweet / accusation. Hence why I bothered making my original post back in the Cretaceous Era.

The Baku story is a good story, but it's irrelevant when the "goal" so to speak is to prove actual collusion with Russia when there's so much inconsistent information out there and nothing even close to a smoking gun.

Let me know when Forbes completely changes an article headline based on Trump's next drunken tweet. I'm sure the "context" will make perfect sense, because in this case there was nothing wrong with the NYT original story.

They do that **** all the time. The only reason you think it's new is either because someone told you it's new and it involves the evil left or you clearly don't know much about common journalistic practices.

So which is it? Ignorance or partisanship? Genuinely the only two things that could've driven you to make that post and defend its stance so vehemently.

I'll go with both.

You guys have demonstrated some interesting...ironies. Very interesting indeed.

I made a few points, explained my reasoning, and that was that. Nice try at the end there though.

Hey now, *we. Let's not joke around here.

Hit me up if you find anything compelling enough to think that this is anything but common or pointless to fret about.

If Forbes fellates the rich by running feature articles then so do the rest of news organizations.

Forbes is a great source*.

*this does not extend to op-eds

You've summed up this whole thread in a nutshell. I have nothing more to add.
