New York Press Story Leads to Disclaimer on NYT Magazine Column

october 31, 2007  11:04 am
A few weeks ago, the Press published a cover story claiming that the author of the New York Times Magazine's "Questions For" column had repeatedly broken the paper's code of ethics by reshuffling her Q&As and even making up questions. The story was batted around the internet, and ultimately Times public editor Clark Hoyt argued in his weekly column that Deborah Solomon's column should come with a disclaimer. Now Gawker reports that Solomon told students at Columbia University last week that the column will indeed come with a disclaimer, though the Times has not yet announced such a move and the column was disclaimer-less this past weekend.
