Caliphate and NYT
NYT created and published a podcast called "Caliphate", the dramatic story of a Canadian man who was lured to Syria by ISIS and eventually became an executioner for the group. It was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and won a Peabody award in 2018. Canadian authorities investigated the protagonist and accused him of perpetrating a terrorism hoax, and after an investigation, NY Times was forced to give back the award and offer an editors note (egg on face). But then they kept the podcast around (never retracted the story) because 2 of 12 episodes may have not been tainted, and they spun it as Michael Barbaro (the top Podcaster of NYT) was a champion for exposing it, while he was actually pressuring media outlets to go easy on the story. Other than getting the story wrong (publishing a fabrication), not retracting and story they knew was false, and misrepresenting how they handled it - they had journalistic integrity.
