Jenn brought you the report that The New York Times may have had a hand in foiling a plot to take out Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Gen.

"Well, on Sunday the New York Times sent Fox News a lengthy statement saying the Times described its 2015 reporting to the Pentagon before publication and they had no objections", Doocy said. She said the online story was changed to reflect comment from the Times after the newspaper reached out.

There's a media storm brewing between President Trump's favorite news outlet and one of his most hated, but it concerns a story that unfolded long before he took office. The Times pled its defense in the alternative, pointing out that its article was published three weeks, not one week, after the raid that killed Abu Sayyaf.

"Neither Fox News' report nor the subsequent on-air coverage was inaccurate", Fox News said.

The "Fox and Friends" segment also featured Thomas' comments.

Writer Eric Schmitt reported that American intelligence officials seized a wealth of data on "how the organization's shadowy leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, operates and tries to avoid being tracked by coalition forces".

The segment was about a tweet from President Donald Trump.

The story was referenced on the program at 6:19 a.m. Saturday. "Their sick agenda over National Security".

That tweet gave Fox News fodder to return to the story later in the day.

In response, the Times sent Fox News a lengthy letter explaining that it would have been hard for al-Baghdadi to have been tipped off by its story since the raid Thomas described occurred on May 16, 2015, and the Times story didn't run until June 8, which even "Fox & Friends" hosts should be able to figure out is three weeks later. Hegseth said the Times "is not just failing in its credibility".

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is highly-anticipated given the smartphone could be a come-back Note-series smartphone for the company. What does that hint at? Samsung has officially confirmed the release date of its next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8.

On Sunday, the Times pushed back. "With this segment, Fox & Friends demonstrated what little regard it has for reporting facts".

The New York Times demanded Fox & Friends apologize for what a rep called the "malicious and inaccurate segment" in which Fox & Friends, with its usual flair, called NYT "failing" - and "unpatriotic".

On Monday, "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy aired a portion of Thomas' remarks. Tony Thomas, head of the US special operations command, by Fox correspondent Catherine Herridge. The raid led to the capture of Abu Sayyaf's wife, Umm Sayyaf, and some documents. Tony Thomas, the head of U.S. Special Operations Command, said his team was "close" to al-Baghdadi after a 2015 raid but the "lead went dead" after it "was leaked in a prominent national newspaper".

The Times in its responses Sunday outlined the timeline of events that led it to publish its story. For starters, they write, the Pentagon first made the announcement about Sayyaf - not them.

Also, the Times says it asked Pentagon sources for comment before publishing its story and that no one had any problems with it. "It the USA government wanted to keep the detention and likely interrogation of the wife secret, the Pentagon would not have publicly announced it". The newspaper said no senior American official complained publicly about the story until now.

The dispute surfaced less than a week after Times television critic James Poniewozik said in a review of "Fox & Friends" that Trump was "the show's subject, its programmer, its publicist and its virtual fourth host".
