The New York Post has a habit of turning up the heat on its competitors.
Now the paper is under fire for using a template for a new article, and it’s not even sure who wrote it.
The template was written by a writer named Jason Kowalski, according to the Post.
The piece appeared on May 10.
It describes how President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump has a business deal with a Russian real estate developer, but says the deal has “been canceled” by the Trump Organization.
The article said the story had been updated to include that the Trump family’s business is “in limbo.”
The template is available in the New Yorkers Times’ template store.
Kowalskis blog was the first to post the article.
It’s now being picked up by other outlets.
But the Post’s editor-in-chief, Jill Abramson, said in a statement, “It is clear that Jason Kowa’s template is not representative of the Post, nor is it consistent with how we have published for months.”
Abramson said she would review the template and issue a statement clarifying the situation.
Kowa told Ars in a phone interview that he wrote the article because it was on the front page and it wasn’t clear to the public how the story was written.
He said he wasn’t trying to undermine the Trump administration.
“This is a story about my business, about how Ivanka Trump’s business has been suspended by the president, which is true,” Kowal said.
“This is how it should be done.
It doesn’t reflect my business at all.””
This template was created with a lot of input from the paper’s writers,” he said.
The story says the story will now be “shifted to a different site with a more detailed explanation of the reasons behind its decision.”
“I am extremely disappointed by the template.
It does not reflect our editorial approach, which includes a robust, transparent, and timely public reporting process,” Abramson said.
The statement said Kowales template was meant to be a placeholder for an editorial to be published later.
“I have reviewed this template and will not be publishing it, and I encourage everyone to do the same,” Abramsons statement said.
