New York Times, with same facts, changes Iraq conflict from 'civil war' to having 'endangered future'

The New York Times declared on its website early Friday in a headline that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, had warned to U.S. was on the "precipice of full-scale civil war." Their headline? "U.S. Envoy in Baghdad Says Iraq Is on Brink of Civil War."

Within an hour and without explanation, the Times yanked the headline in favor of "U.S. Envoy Says Sectarian Violence Threatens Iraq's Future."

Originally, their lead paragraph had read: "The American ambassador to Iraq said Friday that the country was on the precipice of full-scale civil war, and that Iraqi leaders would have to come together and compromise if they wanted to save their homeland."


Responsible media or disinformation?

I keep seeing more and more of these kind of stories where something material gets changed in a story. Honestly, I don't know which is the answer to the question above. But it does not make feel any easier when publishers refuse to provide an explanation for such changes...
