Earlier this month, on June 10, The New York Times inadvertently briefly posted an article on the lives of the women involved in Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal. The article, written by reporter Michael Barbaro, was titled “For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers.” It was quickly deleted before being replaced with a production note:
“An article was posted on this page inadvertently, before it was ready for publication,” read the note left on the story page.
“The story was posted inadvertently before it was ready,” New York Timesspokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha told BuzzFeed. “We do not discuss stories in advance of publication.”
