NY Times to Run Correction After Caption Misidentifies Angela Bassett as Omarosa

Angela Bassett and Dave Chappelle attend Backstage Creations Giving Suite At The 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater

The New York Times went to print with an embarrassing mistake in Tuesday's early edition inside their Emmy Awards coverage in which they captioned a photo of Angela Bassett for Omarosa Manigault Newman. And furthermore, why would Omarosa, who is pretty much a universal pariah at this point, even be invited to the Emmys in the first place, much less allowed to present an award?

"We regret running an incorrect caption from a photo wire service in some early print editions".

Dalot in line for United debut vs. Young Boys
The Manchester United boss recently stated Young Boys hold a "huge advantage" due to their experience on the surface. Everyone knows he has a favourite surface, but he has to win on the surfaces he is not in love with.

"Hey Everybody, no worries!" she tweeted Tuesday, using a meme from the television show "Scandal". However, the error actually leads back to picture agency Getty Images, where Bassett was originally misidentified in a number of photo captions. It seems the photo was taken by an AFP photographer but distributed through Getty Images. "We will issue a correction in tomorrow's paper". The caption incorrectly identified Ms. Bassett as Ms. Manigault Newman, who was not in attendance at the Emmys. Bassett is an accomplished actress who has spent over three decades in Hollywood, while Omarosa is a former "Apprentice" contestant best known for being fired from the White House and launching an anti-Trump press tour to promote a her book.
