The Twitter controversy spurred by a New York Times post comparing the size of the Obama White House Superbowl event with the Trump White House Superbowl event caught the attention of the nation’s tweeter-in-chief. Trump railed against the “failing” New York Times for their “big lie” on Thursday morning.
A New York Times spokesperson provided BuzzFeed News with a quote from Sports editor Jason Stallman:
Bad Tweet by me. Terrible Tweet. I wish I could say it’s complicated, but no, this one is pretty straightforward: I’m an idiot. It was my idea, it was my execution, it was my blunder. I made a decision in about four minutes that clearly warranted much more time. Once we learned more we tried to fix everything as much as possible as swiftly as possible and as transparently as possible. Of course, at that point the damage was done. I just needed to own it.
