The New York Times faced a wave of backlash Thursday morning after announcing in a headline that “We” missed “The Rise of Right-Wing Extremism.”

The headline, for the Thursday episode of the Times’ “The Daily” podcast, was eventually changed: “The Rise of Right-Wing Extremism, and How U.S. Law Enforcement Ignored It”

But readers and journalists saw the initial headline as representative of a narrow view of “we” — and pointed out that marginalized groups in America and scores of reporters on the ground have long warned of violent right-wing extremists.
