Support The Stranger

The Seattle Times included an apology to readers online Wednesday and in print Thursday. The paper, like many others, led Wednesday with an image of former President Bill Clinton on the night Hillary Clinton officially became the Democratic nominee and the first woman in the running for the White House representing a major party.

There were discussions between various Times reporters on Twitter yesterday about how they could have handled the front page differently, but it's great to see that in the end, the leadership of the paper fully owned its mistake—a far cry from how the Times has handled other controversies.
