I’d expect this from the Washington Times not the New York Times. At the request of the White House, they’ve changed a headline.

The New York Times has changed the sub-headline in Wednesday’s front-page story on the C.I.A.’s destruction of secret interrogation tapes, following a formal request by the White House…On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said in a statement that The Times sub-headline – “White House Role Was Wider Than It Said” – was inaccurate…Dean Baquet, the Times Washington D.C. bureau chief, told Politico that while the deck – the sub-headline – went a “little farther than the story,” the facts in the piece are accurate.

Doesn’t the White House have better things to do than to fiddle with a New York Times headline? Like, end the war, reduce the deficit, improve public education, or end poverty or something?
