Fox News, New York Times Tussle Over ISIS Raid Report

Fox News, New York Times Tussle Over ISIS Raid Report”

Fox News reported that Thomas said us troops had "a very good lead", on the I.S. leader's whereabouts. 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". Tony Thomas, the head of U.S. Special Operations Command, said his team was "close" to al-Baghdadi after a 2015 raid but the "lead went dead" after it "was leaked in a prominent national newspaper".

The Times disputes the allegations made in the "Fox & Friends" report and Trump's tweet.

The Times took umbrage, and demanded an apology from Fox.

Fox News' segment and online report having been based on a "misleading assertion by Gen. Thomas speaking at a conference in Aspen" does "not alleviate Fox News of the obligation to seek information from all the stakeholders in a story", the publication scoffed.

Israel seeking to consolidate control over al-Aqsa
These could include reinforcing Israeli police at the entrances and introducing CCTV cameras with facial-recognition technologies. The two countries cooperate closely on regional security issues, but frequently disagree on Israel's policies at the shrine.

The Times asked for an apology for what it called a "malicious and inaccurate segment".

This story has been corrected to show the second Times story appeared on June 8, 2015, not June 18, 2015.

A Fox News executive hammered Rhoades Ha for seeking the apology "a day and a half AFTER the FoxNews.com story was published..."

"The host railed against The New York Times for covering a raid stating that the USA government "would have had al-Baghdadi based on the intelligence that we had except someone leaked" to The New York Times when Fox News had covered the same raid three weeks earlier in a segment in which their correspondent said, 'The newly recovered intelligence may bring USA closer to Baghdadi's kill or capture'".

Poland's Senate Approves Law Giving Politicians Influence Over Judiciary
The legislation sailed through the upper house of the parliament with no amendments, the Polish Press Agency (PAP) said. Duda will meet Supreme Court President Malgorzata Gersdorf Monday, suggesting he won't make a decision before then.

Fox News updated its website Sunday with a statement from the Times.

A New York Times spokesperson reached out to producers for the Fox News show "Fox and Friends", asking the network to apologize on-air and retract a story that claimed that a Times story fumbled plans for the U.S.to capture an ISIS leader in 2015. Weekday co-host Steve Doocy also read part of the statement on air Monday. Several media outlets reported about it at the time, including the Times and Fox News. The fact that USA special forces conducted a raid was no secret.al-Baghdadi obviously knew that one of his chief lieutenants was dead, his wife was captured and various electronic files had been confiscated.

The Pentagon publicly announced the raid, the death of Abu Sayyaf, and the capture of Umm Sayyaf, on May 16, 2015, the Times noted.

The Times said that story was described to officials in the Pentagon before it was published and no objections were raised. I don't know. But General Thomas, the head of all US special forces, believes that the Times article contained information that allowed al-Baghdadi to escape.
