NY Times edits Tea Party article after White House complains

The Bush administration spent years feuding with The New York Times but the Grey Lady hardly ever backed down.

Most would agree that the media's honeymoon with the Obama administration appears to be over, but the relationship isn't as contentious as under Bush.

Perhaps one reason why President Obama seems to get more satisfaction is that he never referred to any Times reporters as "major league assholes."

"The White House is pushing back hard against a New York Times report that the president's political team is considering a national ad campaign that would cast the GOP as taken over by tea party extremists," Mike Allen and Andy Barr report for Politico.

One unnamed White House official claims the story was "100 percent inaccurate," but "Times Washington bureau chief Dean Baquet counters that the 'piece is accurate.'"
