NYT Fails to Mention Bob Menendez Is a Democrat in Story on Corruption Trial

The New York Times on Monday night published a lengthy story about Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) corruption trial, but they neglected to mention his Democratic Party affiliation.

The story, titled "Menendez Trial Set to Begin With Tensions High and Washington Watching," referred to Menendez as "Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey," "Mr. Menendez, a senior senator," "Mr. Menendez" and "the senator," but it did not include the word "Democrat."

After taking extensive criticism on social media, the Times updated the online version of the story to include Menendez's party affiliation in the fourth paragraph.

The author of the story, Nick Corasaniti, tweeted that the omission in the original story was “just an oversight on my part after drafts.”
