19. Again, I'm going to quibble with Boehlert's assertion of NYT culpability.

Barr came out with his spin summation. There was no access to the redacted Mueller Report at that time.

It wasn't PROVEABLE that his spin was a lie at that point, but many had suspicions. The NYT reported Barr's announcements. IIRC, they also reported that others were skeptical, and that there was no way to know definitively.

What are they supposed to do? Not report what Barr claimed? He's the AG of the US. The Trump Admin knew how responsible journalism works, and they exploited that knowledge multiple times to "spread lies".
