That and, judging from their recent layoffs, the Times doesn't have the cash to pay lawyers to tie this up.
Funny though...this admission comes out on Saturday (when few read it). Why don't they can Alexandra Stanley's immediate editor who said last week her characterization was truthful? He's obviously proven himself unqualified to be in that position.
The admission was printed on a Sunday.

However, the Ombud's op-ed does not necessarily rise to
the standard of a retraction, much less an apology, and
it's clear that officially, the NYT is standing by, that
is, repeating the libel. In fact, it hurts the NYT's
posture, since one of their employees is agreeing with
the aggrieved party.
Very stupid of them, considering that Geraldo is
reportedly a lawyer, and that Fox might love the
chance to subsidize an action by him, and drain the
NYT of its remaining cash.
