How news outlets dealt with The Intercept’s retracted story on Dylann Roof’s cousin

After The Intercept announced that reporter Juan Thompson had “fabricated several quotes in his stories and created fake email accounts that he used to impersonate people,” news organizations that picked up a story on Dylann Roof’s cousin were faced with the challenge of how to deal with it. New York Daily News and The Root have added editor’s notes, while The Daily Mail and Alternet deleted the story entirely. The New York Post has not made any corrections or added any editor’s notes to its story.
