Here’s the online version of that article from Jan 19, 2017 — note that the headline is completely different.

It has the same authors, the same basic information, but does not mention “wire tap”.

When you search for “wiretaps used in inquiry of Trump aides” you get this article.  And at the very bottom of the article in 6-point grey type it says “A version of this article appears in print on January 20, 2017, on Page A1 of the New York edition with the headline: Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.”

To avoid using the term wire tap, the NYT kept “Intercepted Russian Communication” in the title of the online version.  The bottom line is that the print version of NY Times articles may not match the online version.

Be careful of your sources, especially the NY Times!
