Twitter Slams NYT For Not Mentioning That Sen. Menendez, Who is Facing Felony Charges, Is a Democrat

On Monday, The New York Times took some heat for a factual omission in an article about Democratic Senator Robert Menendez, whose corruption trial begins this week.

The article, which has since been updated, goes into detail about the New Jersey senator, who is being accused of accepting thousands of dollars in bribes in the form of campaign contributions and lavish vacations, but never mentioned his party affiliation.

And Twitter noticed quickly.

The author of the piece, Nick Corasaniti, made the correction, calling it an “oversight.”

Let’s just say people didn’t believe him.
