In the New York Times‘ article, “Cheney Urges House G.O.P. to Abandon Isolationism,” the author mistakenly referred to Cheney as the former president. On September 9, they issued this correction:
Correction: September 9, 2014
An earlier version of a summary with this article misstated the former title of Dick Cheney. He was vice president, not president.
The article exposes nothing new, just recaps Cheney spouting off about embracing a strong military. Though, “The crux of his argument, in fact, centered not on Mr. Obama, but on the isolationist voices on the rise in his party ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign.”
Maybe the long running joke that it was Cheney who wore the pants during Bush’s tenure has seeped into the Times’ subconscious. Or maybe it an intentional and elaborate jab?
