The New York Times wants an apology from Fox News. Fox spokeswoman Caley Cronin says "Fox & Friends" will air an updated story Monday morning. "Neither the staff at Fox & Friends, nor the writers of a related story on, appeared to make any attempt to confirm relevant facts, nor did they reach out to The New York Times for comment".

In a wide-ranging interview moderated by Fox News' Catherine Herridge, Thomas, who leads the Special Operations Command, said his team was "particularly close" to Baghdadi after the 2015 raid that killed ISIS oil minister Abu Sayyaf. The general never mentioned the Times but Fox said he was referring to a June 2015 story that reported us intelligence agencies obtained "valuable information" from a raid in Syria.

The newspaper also states that the information in the 2015 article was publicly disclosed in a Pentagon news release three weeks before the article was published, was reported by several media outlets and came from United States government officials who knew the details would be written. There's a great need to inform the American public about what we're up to. The paper said it is seeking clarification from the White House about the president's tweet, but in the meantime it is calling on Fox to apologize.
