Is this more fake news from the New York Times, which seems to be the worst offender?
From the wiki page of the new Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte
On his CV (which is linked, in Italian, on the wiki page), Sig Giuseppe includes an entry
dall'anno 2008 all'anno 2012 ha soggiornato, ogni estate e per periodi non inferiori a un mese, presso la New York University, per perfezionare e aggiornare i suoi studi
which google translates as
from the year 2008 to the year 2012 has stayed, every summer and for periods not lower a month, at New York University, to refine and update his studies
Notice that (in google's translation) it says "stayed" rather than "studied" or "worked" or "enrolled"
According to wiki,
On 21 May 2018, when the name of Giuseppe Conte was proposed to President Mattarella as candidate for Prime Minister, The New York Times, questioning his summer stays at New York University listed in his official curriculum vitae, published an article asserting that a NYU spokeswoman did not find the name of Conte in university "records as either a student or faculty member".
So the NYT is giving the impression that Sig Conte is a liar.
But it seems that the NYU spokesman went on add something that the NYT chose to leave out:
The next day, the Associated Press, in an article published also by The New York Times, reported that the NYU spokeswoman added that "While Mr. Conte had no official status at NYU, he was granted permission to conduct research in the NYU law library" during the period listed in his official CV.
Oh, so he was there after all?
We seem to get this a lot from the NYT. Someone whom the NYT dislikes says something and the NYT publishes an article disproving something slightly different from the original statement, but fails to point out the difference, in order to give the impression that the person whom they dislike is a liar.
