The New York Times is a garbage newspaper that represents the decaying rot of journalistic integrity in America. Prove me wrong:
The Times ran a front-page article a week before this admission that was basically Hamas propaganda, featuring children killed in Hamas' all-out war with Israel that was meant to paint Israel in a negative light:
* * *
It's all about those evil Israelis. I mean, who cares about all the Palestinian kids killed and used by Hamas, or the Israeli kids who live in fear of Hamas rockets, amiright??
To try to maintain a semblance of credibility, the Times had to issue a correction on the story, pointing out that 17-year-old Khaled al-Qanou was actually a terrorist.
People rightly noted that this was an absolutely grotesque oversight for a supposed leader in "objective" news:
Even worse, al-Qanou was actually featured on a Hamas recruitment poster before the original story even ran:
The paper also published an incorrect photo of another child who had reportedly been killed in 2017.
It's almost like the Times just trusts whatever the terrorists at Hamas send them without doing actual journalism.
Great job! I can't wait for the totally unbiased fact checkers to ping you for misinformation and for the tech giants to reduce your distribution for your harmful inaccuracies!
