Cage Match: New York Times Vs

Baghdadi is still alive: US Defense Secretary

"Well, on Sunday, the New York Times sent Fox News a lengthy statement saying the Times described its 2015 reporting prior to the Pentagon before publication and they had no objection and no senior American officials had complained publicly until now", Doocy said. The "Fox and Friends" segment aired early Saturday and may have been the story that lead the President to tweet later Saturday saying the newspaper values "their sick agenda over National Security".

The segment in question, aired Saturday morning, featured comments from General Raymond Thomas, who said an article in The Times on intelligence agencies having "extracted valuable information" led to al-Baghdadi escaping, the Associated Press reported. "With this segment, "Fox and Friends" demonstrated what little regard it has for reporting facts".

The Times took umbrage, and demanded an apology from Fox. Tony Thomas Friday in a interview with Fox News' intelligence correspondent, Catherine Herridge. Tony Thomas, head of the US special operations command, by Fox correspondent Catherine Herridge. Relying in part on anonymous sources, it described a special forces raid the preceding month that killed a key ISIS leader, Abu Sayyaf, and captured his wife along with much electronic material.

The drama begins with this article, published by the Times on May 8, 2015. Meanwhile, Fox News accused The Times of "hyperventilating" about the story.

Two-thirds of states adding jobs, government says
Twenty-seven states had jobless rate decreases from a year earlier and 23 states and the District had little or no change. The nation's labor force participation rate was 62.8 percent in June, also back to levels last seen in the late 1970s.

The host on the morning show "Fox & Friends" said the United States government would have had Baghdadi "based on the intelligence that we had, except someone leaked information to the failing New York Times". She said the online story was changed to reflect comment from the Times after the newspaper reached out.

"Neither Fox News' report nor the subsequent on-air coverage was inaccurate", Fox News said.

In response, Fox News late on Sunday published an update to a story on its website and acknowledged the change in a brief "Fox & Friends" segment Monday morning. On Monday, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy issued an "update" on the matter, but not an apology.

"Baghdadi would have known that Umm Sayyaf, Abu Sayyaf's wife, was being held, if not from his own communications network then from the Pentagon's announcement and news reports about that announcement", Rhoades-Ha continued. If Thomas was wrong, the paper should take its case to him, not to Fox News. "It the USA government wanted to keep the detention and likely interrogation of the wife secret, the Pentagon would not have publicly announced it". I don't know. But General Thomas, the head of all USA special forces, believes that the Times article contained information that allowed al-Baghdadi to escape.
