A blatantly anti-Semitic cartoon depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a guide dog with a Star of David collar leading a blind President Trump wearing a skullcap. The cartoon accompanied an op-ed published 4/25/19 in the International Edition of the New York Times.[1] The cartoonist had a history of drawing anti-Semitic cartoons.[2][3] If it could not get any worse, the NYT published another anti-Semitic cartoon a few days later.[4] The NYT #antisemitic cartoon contains numerous clear antisemitic elements.[5]

The New York Times (NYT) is a newspaper published in New York City and distributed worldwide. It is generally thought to promote an extreme leftist point of view.[6][7] Former editor Jill Abramson admitted the paper had an "unmistakably anti-Trump" bias.[8][9]

Declining in popularity and credibility, The New York Times is the third most widely circulated newspaper in the United States behind and The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.[10] The paper is noted for its frequent inaccurate statements related to Christian and Catholic beliefs and practices.[11] In recent years the paper has been criticized for its openly racist and anti-Semitic viewpoints,[12] and it has promoted far-left historical revisionism regarding U.S. history.[13][14] It has also opposed free speech.[15]

The last Republican the New York Times endorsed for president was Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.

The paper has been derisively referred to by its critics as the New York Slimes due to its intentionally sleazy, libelous, fact-twisting and factually devoid articles and left-wing political and ideological bias in support of advancing liberal narratives.[16]

In an article about Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, the fascist New York Times used the word fascist 29 times.

Conservative organizations have stated that the Times promotes the homosexual agenda because it employs homosexuals and wins praise from homosexual groups. In 2001 Richard Berke, the Times' national political correspondent, revealed that "on any given day, three-fourths of those attending the daily meeting where it is decided what will be on the front page of the Times, are likely to be 'not-so-closeted' homosexuals." [17] In 2004, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gave the New York Times an award for "Outstanding Newspaper Overall Coverage", specifically citing journalist Frank Rich's article attacking President Ronald Reagan's record on AIDS.[18]

In 2008, ABC journalist John Stossel claimed: "The reason the Times, and to a lesser extent the Post, are so important, and they are, is because the TV and radio - all of the media - copy it sycophantically. That's how bias at the Times becomes bias in other media."[19]

Examples of types of liberal bias utilized by the New York Times include:

As further reflection of the newspaper's liberal bias, it has been awarded the most Pulitzer Prizes of any newspaper.[20] Leaked internal conversations have revealed many NYT staffers as what one conservative journalist called "parodies of hypersensitive liberal journalists."[21]

The NYT publishes 18 other newspapers, including the International Herald Tribune (based in Paris) and The Boston Globe. The parent company has suffered repeated financial crises in recent years.

In 2017, the NYT abolished its public editor position.[22][23]

On April 5, 2022 the Times reported "it was unable to independently verify the assertions of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry and other officials" regarding the alleged massacre of civilians in Bucha by Russian forces.[24]

Anti-Israel falsehoods

Islamic Terrorists killed their own people in hospital explosion - then falsely blamed Israel (Oct/23)
Confirmed Islamic Jihad rocket caused Gaza hospital Al Ahli blast Oct 2023
Footage from TV station's cameras at the time of the Gaza al-Ahli hospital explosion definitively showing how a misfired Islamic Jihad rocket is responsible for the incident Oct 17 2023
To Israel, every civilian death is a tragedy. To Hamas, it's a propaganda tool

In Oct 2022, the NYT promoted tbe Apartheid slur against Israel in film review by "Palestinian" filmmaker Jumana Manna [25]

One of the worse in blaming-the-victim in the 2023 Sabbath Jerusalem Synagogue Massacre was infamous anti-Israel bigot Patrick Kingsley in his NYT garbage piece,[26] including his nonsense as if racist-Arab Islamic-bigots care what government is in Israel, conservative or liberal.

In Feb 2023, Israel's UN envoy accuses New York Times of 'overt anti-Israel bias', especially with growing anti Semitic attacks. He called asymmetry in The Times' coverage of Israel "libelous narratives" and demanded that reporting in the paper that serves the largest urban Jewish community in the world be rectified.[27]

In July 2023, NYTimes' guest was a bigoted Arab "Palestinian" born in Jordan - Tareq Baconi, justifying, cheering the murdering of Israeli civilians. Using that Israelopohbia - false "Resistance," term too. He bursts out with another song of praise for Palestinian violence. Lacking the ability to condemn Israel for killing Palestinian civilians, Tarek Bakoni is forced to attack her for trying to stop the murder of Israeli civilians.[28][29]


Al Ahli hospital reporting - scandal

Oct 17, 2023, (10+ days following the fascistic "Palestinian" --Hamas / Palestinian Islamic Jihad etc.-- atrocities Oct/7/2023: massacres, beheading of babies, gunning down youths, mass rape while laughing, dismembering bodies, beheading babies, abducting women and children, the elderly, the disabled, parading them towards cheers of thousands of other racist Arabs in Gaza, leadimg to the anti-Terror Swords of Iron), 'Palestinian Islamic Jihad' failed rocket hitting Gaza hospital al-Ahli,[30][31][32][33] causing several casualties. Naturally guilty Palestinian Hamas terrorist regime, immediately blamed Israel for their "accident," (inflated the numbers too), which triggered protests among the Arab world. The failed jihadists' missile was one of approximately 450 that land within the Gaza Strip. In fact, "radar detected outgoing rocket fire at the same moment the blast at the Gaza hospital occurred," Also, was publicized, an audio recording between Hamas operatives immediately after the rocket fall/fail about the terrorists' strike.[34][35] In addition, Gaza-regime Hamas, often working with Islamic jihadists at rocket launchers had warned, one minute before the hospital explosion on an upcoming missile to reach Haifa, which didn't reach that city at the end, and missiles launched do trigger second explosions.[36] Evidence, video of Palestinian failed rocket launch at the time, was published. Footage, analysis and audio intercepted Hamas conversations - immediately after, all supported IDF that it was Palestinians killing[37][38][39] their own people.[40][41] And not a rare case. "US analysis showed Israel not responsible for hospital explosion."[42][43] "Hamas immediately understood that this was the Islamic Jihad’s rocket, and launched a massive lie campaign, blaming Israel... In addition to the aerial footage, there is a recording of Hamas terrorists discussing the hit, describing the shrapnel at the site as "local" and "not Israeli."

For hours, immediately after the incident, without even checking, the NYTimes blindly recycled the butchers-jihadists' version.

Former PM responds to New York Times initial headlines on Gaza hospital explosion. 'Is there a special exemption from fact-checking when it’s the Jewish State involved?' Former Prime Minister Naftali Bennet responded to the headlines in The New York Times, which defined the explosion in the Gaza hospital as an "Israeli strike." "Yesterday, at 6:59PM Islamic Jihad fired a barrage of around 10 rockets to Israel," Bennett wrote. "One of the rockets misfired (fairly common event) and hit the parking lot of the Al-Ahli Hospital, killing many innocent people." "Hamas immediately understood that this was the Islamic Jihad’s rocket, and launched a massive lie campaign, blaming Israel. The New York Times immediately adopted Hamas’ version, peddling this lie for hours." "New York Times: Shame on you. Apologize now for this slander," Bennett added. "Aren’t you supposed to check facts? Isn’t that your claim to fame? Is there a special exemption from fact-checking when it’s the Jewish State involved?" The IDF undertook serious investigations and the IDF spokesman held briefing for foreign media, proving that the missile which hit a Gaza hospital on Tuesday night was not one of Israel's. In addition to the aerial footage, there is a recording of Hamas terrorists discussing the hit, describing the shrapnel at the site as "local" and "not Israeli."[44]

NYT changing headlines after swallowing jihadists' claim about Palestinians killing Palestinians Gaza hospital al Ahli. (Oct.17.23)


Report: NYT Twice Changes Reckless Headline: ‘Israeli Strike Kills Hundreds in Hospital, Palestinians Say’

The New York Times reportedly edited a headline twice on Tuesday about a blast that blew up a Gaza hospital, changing the title each time to reflect less blame against Israel for the tragic explosion.

After the blast, multiple pieces of evidence emerged from the Israel Defense Forces and the media that suggested the blast was an errant rocket fired by Hamas, not an Israeli airstrike. As the evidence came to light, the Times altered its headline... [45]

Even forthright (formerly at HRW) critic of Israeli Military says IDF Not responsible for Gaza hospital explosion: 'It Wasn’t An Airstrike."[46]

Before investigating and checking, Hamas' mouthpiece Al Jazeera (al Jihadzeera) had already inflamed the Arab world by broadcasting Hamas' lie blaming victim-Iarael, and 'protests' broke out -- with much in the Arab world, embarrased by images of Hamas/PIJ Oct 7 atrocities, trying to believe or at least to say they believe the blaming Israel version. As well as increased expressions of hate.

Even Biden fumed at NY Times over coverage of Gaza hospital blast.[47]


Kidnapped-sign-outside-times-office-accuses-paper-of-whitewashing-jew-hatred (20.Nov.23)

'Times’ office accuses paper of ‘whitewashing Jew-hatred. Posters depicting Israeli hostages that Hamas terrorists are holding in the Gaza Strip near a large billboard that the watchdog group CAMERA took out near the Midtown Manhattan offices of “The New York Times,” November 2023.[48]


Sultan Alamer

The NY Times was slammed (Oct/2023) for quoting ‘experts’ Sultan Alamer, who praised ‘mass murder of Jews.’[49]


Hamas' vetbatim


The New York Times caught again passing along Hamas talking points and even language - verbatim, as if they were objective fact. In their Dec. 16, 2023 item, "Israeli forces withdraw after besieging Gaza hospital, leaving behind bodies and destruction," Raja Abdulrahim and Iyad Abuheweila wrote: "For a week the Kamal Adwan Hospital in Beit Lahia was surrounded and raided by Israeli occupation[sic] forces, who destroyed the southern part of the hospital, according to the health ministry." The term - vilification of Israel’s military favored by anti-Israel activists along with terror organizations including Hamas. Notably, this language is not consistent with Times‘ style and practice. It indicates a total departure of journalistic norms guiding objective reporting. Shortly after media watchdog CAMERA called out the paper for this egregious formulation and directly contacted an editor the word "occupation" disappeared...[50]


Hamas' mayor


On Dec 24, 2023, the NYT published a "guest essay" by Hamas' mayor, no less. Causing uproar. [51][52] [53]


Sudden urprising publishing of Oct 7 rape Jihad crimes


In harrowing detail, the NYT ("'Screams Without Words': How Hamas Weaponized Sexual Violence on Oct. 7")[54] reports on weaponization of rape, sexual violence on Oct. 7. Publication uncovers new information, devastating testimony, on systemic targeting of women and girls, use of sexual assault and mutilation during savage Hamas onslaught in Israel.'


Some asked: 'Is this a ploy by -- Arabized "Palestinian" Nazi Hitler-fan (Soliman Hijjy) employer -- NYT to get credibility for its weekly Pallywood garbage (such as by Raja Abdulrahim, Iyad Ibuheweila)?'[55]

Raja Abdulrahim

Propagandist supporting terrorists, CAIR linked

In Feb 2022, NYT hired former CAIR's linked[56] Raja Abdulrahim, who published letter denying Hamas, Hizbollah are terror orgs which murdered innocent Israeli civilians, was granted CAIR scholarship.

Example spin by Islamic propagandist Raja Abdulrahim in Apr 2022. "The Raja Abdulrahim article is not facing a confusion based on facts that are perplexing or unclear. It’s based on the blatant contradictions between the actual situation in Israel and the version that the nytimes wants its readers to believe."[57]

She's also pushing the fake "innocent" narrative on Palestinian terrorist Israel eliminates. Apr 2022,[58] Another New York Times Journalistic Malpractice Case. Again, Libeling Israel. The terrorist backgrounds of Jenin gunmen are expurgated by the Times.


The deplorable New York Times hire, reporter Raja Abdulrahim showed her unreliability again, and bigotry to try to limk Palestinian Arab accident on unrelated Israel, inserting also fake news regarding Judea Samaria:[59]

There has been a great deal of surprise and confusion in the American press over the results of the recent Israeli elections. Pundits and self-styled “experts,” as well as liberal American Jews, seem to be having trouble grasping why Israeli voters turned so decisively towards parties on the political right. Well, one need no look further than the Nov. 19 edition of The New York Times for the answer. From the headline on page 10, one would not think the article had anything to do with Israel. "Blaze in Gaza Strip Kills 21 Gathered for Family Party," it announced. Correspondent Raja Abdulrahim began by describing, matter-of-factly, the circumstances surrounding a fire that tragically engulfed the entire top floor of a building in the northern Gaza neighborhood of Jabaliya. Then Abdulrahim suddenly pivoted and pointed an accusing finger at Israel. She cited claims by Hamas that Israel prevents Gaza from importing adequate firefighting equipment. “Israel’s civil administration… controls the civilian aspects of Israel’s presence in the occupied territories, including Gaza and the West Bank,” she wrote. Clearly the point of that sentence was to establish that Israel must bear some of the blame for the fire because Israel “controls” Gaza, at least to some extent. Except that it doesn’t. The Israeli civil administration, to which Abdulrahim referred, was established after Israel captured Judea, Samaria and Gaza in a defensive war in 1967. When Israel withdrew from most of Gaza in 1994 as part of the Oslo Accords, the civil administration there was restricted to the narrow sliver where Israeli communities were located. Then, in 2005, Israel expelled the Jewish residents and tore down those communities. The civil administration’s presence in Gaza ended. Yes, the civil administration still operates in the parts of Judea and Samaria that Israel rules, but not in Gaza. Now look again at the way Abdulrahim constructed her sentence: “Israel’s civil administration… controls the civilian aspects of Israel’s presence in the occupied territories, including Gaza and the West Bank.”

By blurring “Gaza and the West Bank” together, as if they are a single unit, Abdulrahim created the false impression that the Israeli civil administration still has some control in Gaza, since it operates in part of “the West Bank.”

As expected, she oroved to be a radical mouthpiece for "Palestinians."[60]

In white washing the horrific 2023 Sabbath Jerusalem Synagogue Massacre: 'Insane,' 'Reprehensible,' ‘Complicit’: New York Times Excuse-Making for Jerusalem Terrorists was condemned. It typified what it means when it's being said that the media is complicit in the crimes.[61] Shame on the NYtimes for "trying to minimize and excuse a terrorist attack that left 8 Jewish civilians dead, at their synagogue, on Int’l Holocaust Remembrance Day." concealing “the terror affiliations of at least seven of the nine Palestinians, introducing the false impression that the Palestinian dead are, like the Israelis murdered in Jerusalem, innocent victims." By it Times had achieved a “reprehensible result: minimizing and obscuring Palestinian terrorism." Critic contrasted a Times of Israel headline, "Armed Palestinian shot dead by guard near West Bank settlement, IDF says," and a New York Times headline about the same event, which said, "Palestinian Man Fatally Shot as Violence Continues in Israel."

Raja Abdulrahim in printed New York Times takes pains to describe the terrorist attack outside a Jerusalem synagogue as “a synagogue in a Jewish settlement[sic] in East Jerusalem.” The Times article says, “The recent Palestinian attacks, including Friday night’s shooting outside a synagogue and Saturday’s shooting, have targeted Israeli settlements and settlers in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. The settlements are considered illegal under international law and by much of the international community.”

That is cow manure, which is to say, both inaccurate and a morally loathsome effort to justify an attack on innocent civilian worshipers.

As HonestReporting noted, “On the contrary, Neve Yaakov is not a ‘settlement’ outside Jerusalem but is rather one of the neighborhoods that make up the Jerusalem municipality. While it is true that Israel gained control over that area following the Six-Day War, Neve Yaakov does not have the legal status of a ‘settlement’ and is a fully integrated municipal neighborhood. It should also be noted that Neve Yaakov sits on land that was purchased by the Jewish community in the early 20th century and served as a Jewish agricultural center until it was depopulated during the Israeli War of Independence.”

Around operation Shield and arrow against "Palestinian" Islamic Jihad PIJ terrorists, NYT's "Palestinian" Islamic reporter purposely misreported facts:[62]
Abdulrahim’s explanation of the goal of Islamic Jihad was purposely vague. She left out the fact that it is an Islamist party that believes that the entire country—Israel and the territories—should be governed solely by Islamic law. Even more important, she wrote that it was created in the 1980s “to fight the Israeli occupation.” To most Times readers and consumers of other corporate media outlets, that sounds like the organization wants to end Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank”), as well as Jerusalem. But for Palestinian Arabs, the phrase means something different. When members of PIJ, or for that matter, those affiliated with its Hamas rivals or even the so-called “moderates” of Fatah—whose leaders corruptly run the Palestinian Authority— speak of “occupation,” they are not referring to those territories that Israel gained during the 1967 Six-Day War, and which the international community and the media wrongly describe as “Palestinian” rather than disputed. As far as PIJ is concerned, every inch of Israel is “occupied.” It regards the creation of the Jewish state 75 years ago as a nakba—a “catastrophe” or “disaster”—as well as a crime that must be expunged by violent struggle.

Raja Abdulrahim, again, weeks later, demonized Israel with another skewed piece but not blaming the vicious Jihadists choosing residential areas, nor praising humamitarian Israeli effort to minimize Arab casualties.[63]


"Raja Abdulrahim continues in her tradition of using her platform as a New York Times reporter to shade the facts away from the reality." In her Jul 2023 propaganda piece, instead of pointing to the culprit leadership and an overall cult(ure) which glorifies Shaidism "martyrs". She white washes the whole phenomenon. [64]

Fixing terrible NYT coverage, language[65]
CNN, NYT Refuse to Call Ramot Ramming Attack Terrorism

Refusing the T word on Palestinian-terrorist rammning attack in civilians

In Feb 2023, the NYT refused to call Ramot ramming attack Palestinian terrorist ramming attack (Jerusalem February 2023), Terrorism.[66]

Hiba Yazbek

In April 2022, the radically biased NYT hired another vile Islamic anti-Israel propagandist, Hiba Yazbek. As if hiring Raja Abdulrahim wasn't estructive enough. In 2021 for example Yazbek protested "emotionally" Israel eliminating a murderer terrorist.[67]

Watchdog:[68]
A Pattern of Hiring to Ensure a Pattern of Bias

That the newspaper would hire such a partisan is telling. For context, Yazbek is hardly the first person with a history of anti-Israel comments to be employed by the Times. A decade before joining the newspaper in 2015, Diaa Hadid had worked for the anti-Israel NGO Ittijah, had written that she even “can’t look at Israelis any more,” and insisted the Jewish-state was a country “founded on hate.” Her “objectivity got thrown out the window,” she had admitted. (Hadid has since left the Times.) Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, while a student at the University of Florida, Raja Abdulrahim wrote to her campus paper to protest a description of Hamas and Hezbollah as “terror organizations” that have “murdered innocent Israeli civilians. A few years later, she was given a thousands of dollars by the anti-Israel (and anti-synagogue) organization CAIR to “encourage” journalism that is congruous with CAIR’s ideology. Recently, Abdulrahim was hired by the New York Times.

But in Yazbek’s case, the evidence of a skewed perspective about the conflict is particularly recent relative to her hiring.

Fady Hanona

In Aug 2022, the NYT reportedly cut Gaza stringer loose for urging murder of Israelis, Hanona: "The Jews are sons [sic] of the dogs… I am in favor of killing them and burning them like Hitler did. I will be so happy." (His post in Aug 2014. Typically, the NYT is concerned about this kind of behavior only when they get caught.).[69][70][71]


Soliman Hijjy

NYT rehires Hitler-praising Soliman Hijjy to cover Israel-Hamas war. Oct/2023

After firing Soliman Hijjy in 2022, following exposed his Hitler praising 2012 and 2018 posts, in Oct 2023, the NYT rehired this racist Arab Palestine to cover at Swords of Iron.[72]

Bucha massacre

See also: Ukraine propaganda war

The New York Times was in Bucha, Ukraine on April 2, 2022 and did not report a massacre. Instead, the Times confirmed the Russian withdrawal was completed two days after the mayor of Bucha said it was, and that the Russians left “behind them dead soldiers and burned vehicles, according to witnesses, Ukrainian officials, satellite images and military analysts.” The Times said reporters found the bodies of six civilians. “It was unclear under what circumstances they had died, but the discarded packaging of a Russian military ration was lying beside one man who had been shot in the head,” the paper said. In Bucha, the Times was close to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, whose soldiers appear in the newspaper’s photographs. The Times suggests that Azov Nazis may be responsible for the killings:

NATO-backed neo-Nazis in the Donbas war.[73]
“Something very interesting then happens on [Saturday] 2 April, hours before a massacre is brought to the attention of the national and international media. The US and EU-funded Gorshenin Institute online [Ukrainian language] site Left Bank announced that:
‘Special forces have begun a clearing operation in the city of Bucha in the Kyiv region, which has been liberated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The city is being cleared from saboteurs and accomplices of Russian forces.’

The Russian military has by now completely left the city, so this sounds for all the world like reprisals. The state authorities would be going through the city searching for ‘saboteurs’ and ‘accomplices of Russian forces.’ Only the day before [Friday], Ekaterina Ukraintsiva, representing the town council authority, appeared on an information video on the Bucha Live Telegram page wearing military fatigues and seated in front of a Ukrainian flag to announce ‘the cleansing of the city.’ She informed residents that the arrival of the Azov battalion did not mean that liberation was complete (but it was, the Russians had fully withdrawn), and that a ‘complete sweep’ had to be performed.”

Defund the Police

The movement began with an editorial by the communist mouthpiece New York Times[76] and was immediately echoed by Hillary Clinton's press spokesman.[77] Together with its revisionist 1619 Project, the New York Times has been a vociferous supporter of the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization. Gatewaypundit exposed Black Lives Matter as a money laundering scheme for the Democratic National Committee.[78] When you click on the “Donate” button on blacklivesmatter.com you are sent to “ActBlue”, the DNC official payment portal. ActBlue claims to be tax exempt organization and all donations to it are tax-deductable. The terms and conditions also link to ActBlue and mention “Campaign Finance Laws”.[79] When you research the expenditures of ActBlue, all of their contributions are directly going to top DNC campaigns.[80] After reaching the BLM homepage, which features a “Defund The Police” petition front and center, if a user chooses to donate, they’re rerouted to a site hosted by ActBlue. Joe Biden is a top beneficiary of the ActBlue’s fundraising efforts.[81]

ActBlue contributions comprise 99.64 percent of all funds raised for the “Biden for President” entity and the total is nearly 773 times greater than the group with the second-highest donation sum. As of May 21, 2020, the organization has donated $119,253,857 to the “Biden for President” effort.[82]

FTX scandal

Speakers at the New York Times event, Bankman-Fried, Zelensky, Fink, and Yellen.[83]
See also: FTX scandal

The New York Times, in partnership with WEF partner Accenture,[84] was planning on to hold its DealBook Summit on November 30, 2022 featuring Sam Bankman-Fried, Ukrainian dictator Vladimir Zelensky, Blackrock CEO Larry Fink, and Biden Treasury secretary Janet Yellen as the main speakers at a cost of $2,400 to attend. The event was scheduled for three weeks after the scandal erupted and became public.

Others to be included in the event were Mark Zuckerberg, New York mayor Eric Adams, CNN host Van Jones, Amazon.com CEO Andy Jassy, Netflix founder and CEO Reed Hastings, TikTok CEO Shou Chew and former Indian governor Mike Pence. The event was billed as bringing "together the most consequential people at the intersection of business, policy and culture that are impacting society. The conversations this year will address the complicated, turbulent global landscape and seek to find solutions for the future of business, tech, policy and more.”

Zerohedge noted: “It's not just us: with much of the entire world demanding to know how this corpulent 30-year-old still has not been thrown in prison, or at least charged with a variety of crimes, the New York Times just confirmed to the entire world what a farce the one-time paper of record has become, and how it is willing to whore itself out for clicks - not to mention prominent Democrat donors - because moments after Sam Bankman-Fried tweeted that he will be speaking with Andrew Ross-Sorkin at the moderated New York Times "summit" on Nov 30 [2022]...Sorkin quickly confirmed as much”.[85]

Coronavirus

By 2020 the New York Times still existed in print editions and on newsstands, which was convenient given the toilet paper shortage which, in part, was caused by the CCP global pandemic. One NYT reporter, Donald G. McNeil, Jr., blamed Trump and the CDC for the Coronavirus pandemic.[86]. Trump told him, "Don't ask me, ask China that question", then he said with a loud voice, "It is NOT China's fault". They called the CDC "Chinese" even though it is American, and then Joe Biden received tremendous support from them.

Aligned with DNC/CCP

After the failure of the Mueller Report, The New York Times founded The 1619 Project in August 2019 to serve the Democrat Party's's objective of falsely painting Donald Trump as a "racist" as a key issue for the 2020 presidential election. The 1619 Project claims that the United States was founded in the year 1619 A.D. on the basis of "racism".[87]

Far-Left agenda

In 2004, the newspaper's ombudsman, Daniel Okrent, published a piece on the Times' liberal bias, citing the example of its coverage of same-sex "marriage".[88]

Refaat Alareer "educating" his daughter toddler: She asked: "Dad who created the J..s?"[89]

In 2012 again the "public editor" of the New York Times, Arthur Brisbane, accused his employers of harboring progressive bias on topics like same-sex "marriage" and the Occupy movement.[90] Its publisher, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. has denied the paper's extreme leftist bias, claiming instead that the paper has an "urban" viewpoint.[91]

Racism and hate groups

"I could not answer her question. Unfortunately." - Refaat Alareer.[89]

In August 2018, the newspaper defended a racist, misandrist, anti-police and anti-Trump editor it had just hired, and it even defended her racism.[92] In a blatant display of liberal double standards, while this editor's racism was directed at white-skinned people, the NYT immediately fired another editor only a few months prior for anti-black and -gay tweets, even though that instance was not as severe as the former.[93]

In January 2019, The New York Times wrote a sympathetic profile of Black Hebrew Israelites, a racist hate group, treating them significantly better than a group of Catholic students wearing MAGA hats, who it demonized.[94][95]

Two 17-year-old Indian boys allegedly used racial slurs against a group of African-American girls and urinated on one during the game at Lawrence High School. By making race a "social construct", the racist actions of non-white people can still be blamed on white people. New York Times columnist Nell Irvin Painter, wrote that the Indian boys were “enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.”[96]

Refaat Alereer, "author" out of Gaza, replying to a Twitter noting Y. Rabin was a peacemaker, Refaat replied "So was Hitler". (Sep/25/2020)

On May 13, 2021,[97] a "contributor" piece appeared in the NYT by a vicious racist spreading Nazi type of venom (including his boasting, his child at the age of 5/6, asked him who created the Jews, and he said he couldn't answer her[89] In order to justify his war, Refaat stated that all Israel are "soldiers."[97] Which of course includes the elderly, the children, most of ultra Orthodox haredi who choose not to serve on the IDF for religious reasons, especiallly a large percentage of Jerusalem's neighborhoods who are as much of target by Arab Islamic racist attackers. The NYT May/2021 article essentially promoting a modern-day blood libel about Israel. In Sep 25, 2020, a twitter 'Lou' tweeted: 'Rabin was a peacemaker.' Refaat (@itranslate123) replied: 'So was Hitler.') - Gaza "author" Refaat Alareer, claiming his child supposedly "asked" him something about bombing. [98]

CCP propaganda

See also: CCP propaganda war

In July 2021, NYT reporter Katie Benner tweeted:

“Today’s #January6thSelectCommittee underscores the America’s current, essential natsec dilemma: Work to combat legitimate national security threats now entails calling a politician’s supporters enemies of the state.[99]

The tweet essentially called Trump supporters "enemies of the state" and a national security threat. Benner used to write for the Beijing Review, China’s only National news magazine in English, published by the Chinese Communist Party-owned China International Publishing Group. Benner joined the New York Times in 2015 after her initial work at the communist propaganda outlet.[100] The CCP-controlled Beijing Review was designated by the U.S. State Department in 2020 as a “foreign mission” of China:

“Pursuant to authorities under the Foreign Missions Act, the State Department is issuing today a new determination that designates the U.S. operations of Yicai Global, Jiefang Daily, Xinmin Evening News, Social Sciences in China Press, Beijing Review, and Economic Daily as foreign missions. These six entities all meet the definition of a foreign mission under the Foreign Missions Act in that they are “substantially owned or effectively controlled” by a foreign government. In this case, they are effectively controlled by the government of the People’s Republic of China”.[101]

Covid vaccine

New York Times editor Carlos Tejada died of a heart attack, 24 hours after receiving a Moderna Covid “booster” shot. Tejeda was 49 years old.[102]

Jeffrey Epstein

In August 2018, reporters at The New York Times and other publications received word Tesla founder Elon Musk was relying on Jeffrey Epstein to advise him on whom to consider hiring as board chair or chief executive. Editors at the Times sent business columnist James Stewart to talk to Epstein. "I wondered why would Musk, if this is true, be using a registered sex offender to recruit new members to the board," Stewart told The Kicker, a podcast from the Columbia Journalism Review. Stewart wrote, "He said that criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history it was perfectly acceptable."[103]

Stewart was not the editors' first choice to interview Epstein further. Initially, they had asked Landon Thomas Jr., a veteran financial correspondent who had been at the Times for 16 years. Thomas knew Epstein fairly well — having first written about him in 2002. For a 2008 profile, Thomas had traveled to Epstein's private isle in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The article largely presented Epstein as someone who solicited prostitutes, not committed sex crimes against minors. Federal agents had by then identified several dozen possible victims. The piece ran just before Epstein submitted to authorities in Florida for incarceration. It included this passage: "As his legal troubles deepened, Mr. Epstein gazed at the azure sea and the lush hills of St. Thomas in the distance, poked at a lunch of crab and rare steak prepared by his personal chef, and tried to explain how his life had taken such a turn," Thomas wrote. "He likened himself to Gulliver shipwrecked among the diminutive denizens of Lilliput."

After Epstein's death the paper reported on a public apology by one of its corporate directors, Joichi Ito, who had landed millions of dollars from Epstein for the institute he leads, the MIT Media Lab. In a tweet, the paper's media editor, Jim Windolf, said that Ito had sought funds from Epstein "a few years after Epstein got out of the Palm Beach County Jail."[104]

Haqqani

After eliminating Al Qaeda's Al-Zawahiri in Aug/2022, it was stressed that arch-jihadist was killed at home of Taliban lackey the New York Times gave platform to.[105]
The paper was slammed by critics and even its own reporters for giving the global terrorist a megaphone to thousands of readers to spew what many saw as thinly veiled propaganda. The Times defended its decision to publish the piece at the time.

History

The New York Times was first published as New-York Daily Times in September 1851, and is often referred to as the Old Grey Lady.

Fascism

See also: Fascism and the New Deal

Two weeks after Presiden Franklin Roosevelt was sworn in, The New York Times praised fascism, which became the model for the New Deal:

"In a period when all politicians are either dull or unwilling to break away from routine – “tradition” ; when it seems that in every Western nation the spring of imagination is dried up, Mussolini gives the impression of an ever-welling source. One may object to any for of dictatorship, but one cannot help being stimulated by the phenomenal vitality of this man who, in his role of dictator, has commanded the barren soil of Italy to produce wheat within a given time; ordered his territory to be expanded (by reclaiming swamps) without extending his fronters; and, not content with summoning new cities into existence, is changing the face of the Eternal City by digging up the buried glories of Imperial Rome….

In order to create a new Italy he is returning to the old sources of Roman strength and domination. He wishes to resuscitate the material vestiges of ancient Rome because they are beautiful and invaluable, but also, and mainly, because in so doing he hopes to revive the old virtues of the rugged men who under Iron discipline once fashioned Roman power…. Here I had the feeling that there is no limiting condition imposed on any Fascist project; a strange impression that whatever Mussolini commands is executed without being hampered by problems, practical or financial.[106]

Victims of Soviet government "agricultural reform" policies.

Soviet crimes against humanity

Main article: Holodomor

In 1931, Times correspondent and Soviet sympathizer/propagandist/collaborator Walter Duranty intentionally covered up the Soviet genocide of the Ukrainians.[107] Duranty not only helped conceal all evidence of Holodomor, but also called other journalists who reported on it "liars".[108][109] The lack of knowledge of this genocide was observed by English writer George Orwell, who commented "huge events like the Ukraine famine of 1933, involving the deaths of millions of people, have actually escaped the attention of the majority of English Russophiles".[110] The Soviets managed to cover this up until Ukraine’s independence in 1991. Official Soviet documents recently declassified revealed that the genocide was indeed intended to target the Ukrainian people.[111]

Nazism

The New York Times Crossword Puzzle in the shape of a swastika on the first day of Hanukkah, December 18, 2022.[112]

In 2005, Professor Laurel Leff of Northeastern University published her seminal history of The New York Times titled "Buried By The Times: The Holocaust And America's Most Important Newspaper"[113] wherein she documented the newspaper's catastrophically failed coverage of the fate of millions of European Jews barely existing under the tyrannical and despotic rule of the German Nazi regime.

She goes into detail how the decisions that were made by The New York Times ultimately resulted in their minimizing what turned out to be modern history's worst genocide—and whose cause of doing so she traced to its publisher Arthur Sulzberger—who, while millions of European Jews were being slaughtered, sent a memo to all of his reporters stating: "I have been trying to instruct the people around here on the subject of the word ‘Jews’, i.e., that they are neither a race nor a people, etc."[114][115]

During the atrocities, over 11,000 articles were published. But of those, merely 26 were about the Holocaust. To make matters worse, those articles that did actually get published were small, and buried deep and low in the paper below advertisements. One of the worst examples was an article titled "Warsaw Fears Extermination", which was so poorly written and spread apart that it was difficult to understand fully what the article was about.[116]

Maoism

For a more detailed treatment, see Maoism.
The New York Times reported:[117]

Most Americans who have visited Red China are accused of arriving at their judgements according to previously held prejudices. None denies, however, that in Communist China they have found matters of law and order, public health, equitable distribution of food and wealth, and other operations of Government carried out with greater earnestness and success than elsewhere in China or in most of Asia. . .

Another certainty is that the idea they represent, the hope they hold for the landless, overtaxed Chinese peasant, is not one that can be destroyed by force. . .

By 1956, during the Three Years of Disasters, U.S. Ambassador Joseph C. Grew commented,

The appalling figures on murders committed by the Beijing Communist government are neither propaganda, exaggerations nor guesses. Since the Communists drove Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalists off the mainland in 1949, official accounts in Red newspapers have listed the executions of millions of Chinese. . .
. . . The real total of Chinese deaths administered by Beijing probably would total a great deal more than the estimates. Few Chinese marked for death by Beijing had a chance to escape their executioners. The Communists masked their real intentions with a deceptively mild, restrained and orderly entry to power.[118][119]

In a September 2019 tweet, The New York Times praised Mao Tse-tung and reminded viewers of its past positive coverage of Mao.[120]

Promoting Castro

The front page of the New York Times on April 18, 1959 read, "Premier Fidel Castro of Cuba denied today charges of Communist influence in his regime. In a speech before the American Society of Newspaper Editors he asserted: 'I have said very clearly that we are not Communists...our revolution is a humanistic one'". In an editorial later, the Times commented Castro "made it quite clear that neither he nor anyone of importance in his Government so far as he knew was Communist or in agreement with communism."

Cuban President Fulgencio Batista (left) welcoming U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt (right). Batista, a signatory of the Atlantic Charter, was overtherown by Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro.

On May 23, 1959, on the front page, the Times recorded the following: "Extremists have no place in the Cuban revolution, Premier Fidel Castro said in a television interview....In the same broadcast the Premier dashed hopes of United States sugar interests to save their properties from seizure under the new land reform law." An editorial in the same issue the Times declared: "It is encouraging to see Premier Fidel Castro of Cuba facing up to the Communists as he did in his television interview . . . The aims of the Cuban Reds, with their links to Moscow and their totalitarian philosophy, were bound to be contrary, in the long run, to the aims of the 26th of July movement, which fought for democracy, freedom, social justice and - rather unhappily - for an extreme nationalism."

After Castro seized power, on July 16, 1959 the New York Times front page carried a story by Herbert L. Matthews:

This is not a Communist revolution in any sense of the word and there are no Communists in positions of control. This is the overwhelming consensus among Cubans in the best position to know and this writer subscribes to that opinion after searching inquiries and talks with Cubans in all walks of life and with many Americans....

There seem to be very few in Cuba - and one need have no hesitation in saying this - who believe Fidel Castro is a Communist, is under Communist influence or is a dupe of communism...

There are no Reds in the Cabinet and none in high positions in the Government or army in the sense of being able to control either governmental or defense policies. The only power worth considering in Cuba is in the hands of Premier Castro, who is not only not Communist but decidedly anti-Communist. . .

Premier Castro is avoiding elections in Cuba for two reasons. He feels that his social revolution now has dynamism and vast popular consent, and he does not want to interrupt the process. Moreover, most observers would agree that Cubans today do not want elections. The reason is that elections in the past have merely meant to them the coming of corrupt politicians seeking the spoils of power.
On December 2, 1961 Castro announced that he was forming:
a "united party of Cuba's Socialist revolution," a monolithic organization like the Soviet Communist party with restricted membership....[He] acknowledged that he was a Marxist-Leninist and said that he was taking Cuba down the path to communism. He maintained that the world, too, "is on the road toward communism." . . .I am a Marxist-Leninist and will be one until the day I die".
Castro added that by 1953, three years before his insurrection in Cuba, his political thinking "was more or less like what it is now." Herbert L. Matthews after his days as a reporter in Havana was promoted to the Editorial Board of the New York Times.

Spinning for Carter

The New York Times attempted to spin the 1970s stagflation crisis in order to protect former President Jimmy Carter’s political image before the 1980 elections.[121]

Evil Empire

  • When on March 8, 1983 Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union where people were routinely sent to Gulags an "Evil Empire", prominent liberal intellectual Anthony Lewis of the New York Times commented two days later that the speech was "primitive...simplistic theology" and "a mirror image of crude Soviet rhetoric". But when news of the speech reached Natan Sharansky, confined to an eight-by-ten foot cell on the Siberian border, the reaction was different: “Tapping on walls and talking through toilets, word of Reagan’s 'provocation' quickly spread throughout the prison. We dissidents were ecstatic. Finally, the leader of the free world had spoken the truth — a truth that burned inside the heart of each and every one of us.”[122]

Fabrications and scandals

  • In 2003, Times reporter Jayson Blair resigned after it was found that he had engaged in repeated plagiarism and deceit, copying articles from other newspapers and fabricating information.[123]

Jihadism

  • The New York Times is known to defend America's enemies, discount terrorist acts or present stories as not to offend Islamic feelings, as with the case of American students who carried out suicide bombings in Somalia. In the NYT article "A Call to Jihad, Answered in America," the issue was a "crisis of belonging," "They want to belong, but who do they belong to?" Then the author states that these jihadist were "born-agains" or "fundis", not how the rest of America describes Islamic fascism.[128]

Boston Marathon Bombing

After much liberal media speculation that the Boston Marathon bombing was caused by right-wingers [129] or tea-partiers,[130] it was discovered that the bombing was done by two Islamic brothers. At that point, the liberal media became very sympathetic toward the bombers, who killed two women and a child, then shot and killed a police officer. The New York Times wrote a piece excusing their actions since they grew up in a bad country (Chechnya).[131]

Coverage of the Taliban

Like everything else liberal, supporting America's fighting men and women is a burden for the paper. If it is a sensitive matter that would endanger the lives of our troops, they dismissively shrug the concerns off and post photos of American troops abusing prisoners in Iraq. In a liberal 'cause for concern', a New York Times reporter was kidnapped in Afghanistan by the Taliban, December 2008. The Times colluded with all the news organizations to keep it secret, not to endanger the reporter.[132]

The Associated Press and most other Western news outlets respected a request from the Times to not report on the abductions because the publicity could negatively affect hostage rescue efforts and imperil Rohde's life.

Changing Jesus' place to support 'falstinian'

Noted by watchdog, after NYT was notified of gross errors, "New York Times quietly concedes Jesus didn’t live in [so-called titled/name] "Palestine":[133]

As The New York Times itself noted in a commendable June 20, 2008 correction, the Romans named Judea and the Galilee, where Jesus was born and then lived, "Palestina" more than a century after he was crucified. The Times correction 15 years ago accurately stated:

The Malula Journal article on April 22, about efforts in the village of Malula, Syria, and two neighboring villages to preserve Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus, referred incorrectly to the name of the region where Jesus spent most of his time. It was Galilee — not Palestine, which derives from the word Palestina, the name that Roman conquerors gave to the region more than 100 years after Jesus’s death.

    Erdan called asymmetry in The Times' coverage of Israel "libelous narratives" and demanded that reporting in the paper that serves the largest urban Jewish community in the world be rectified

    NEW YORK –Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan on Wednesday sent a letter to The New York Times' executive editor in which he sharply condemned the newspaper's "overt anti-Israel bias."

    Addressed to Joseph Kahn, Erdan called asymmetry in The Times' coverage of Israel, from opinion columns to news stories, "libelous narratives" and demanded the reporting be rectified.

    The ambassador cited a study conducted by Bar-Ilan University over the course of 2022 which found there were 361 articles focusing on Israel, most of which disparage Israel and brand it a human right's violator. The study, included in the letter, also shows that the number of opinion columns condemning Israel was almost double the number of columns condemning Iran, despite the fact that in the past year, the Ayatollah regime murdered innocent protestors in the street, oppressed women, and accelerated its nuclear program.

    Erdan accused The Times, which has won 132 Pulitzer Prizes, the most of any newspaper, of omitting details and distorting reality. Nicknamed "The Newspaper of record," The Times serves the largest urban Jewish community in the world.

    "The cornerstones of journalism ethics are truth, accuracy, and objectivity – values that, when it comes to Israel, The Times deliberately refuses to uphold," he wrote. "When The New York Times chooses to demonize Israel, the very least professional journalism demands is that the reader is exposed to the whole story in order to formulate an unbiased opinion. Yet when The Times reports Israel’s actions with nearly non-existent context, it actively contributes to warping the truth."

    "Due to your whitewashing of Palestinian terror and the propagation of half-truths, your readers are hardly aware of these Jihadist organizations’ existence, let alone the constant threat they pose to Israel. In the future, if Israel is again forced to defend itself against indiscriminate Palestinian rocket fire on our homefront, whether from Gaza or Lebanon, your readership will unknowingly infer that Israel is the aggressor, despite the exact opposite being true. Through this deceitful coverage, The Times not only twists the truth but also incentivizes terrorism."

     "As you are aware, antisemitism is rising at a terrifying rate," Erdan continued.  "Much of today’s violent Jew-hatred takes the form of Israel-hatred. And part of the blame for this growing bigotry lays on your shoulders. The New York Times’ libelous narratives are actively contributing to the growing hatred of my country, and as a result, your publication plays a role in endangering Jews around the globe."

    The Gray Lady was already under fire for 'pushing antisemitic tropes'

    The head of the Anti-Defamation League told Fox News earlier this month that The New York Times' months of coverage of New York City’s Orthodox Jewish community pushed antisemitic tropes and fed stereotypes. 

    "We have the right to voice our outrage at this coverage," said Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of ADL, which was founded in 1913 to combat antisemitism and defamation of Jews in America. "We have an obligation to a community that is under siege to state clearly and consistently that this is not acceptable." 

    Beginning in September, the Times published a series of investigative stories about New York City’s Orthodox Jewish community’s boys' schools, also known as yeshivas. The reporting singled out schools run by the Hasidic community. 

    Greenblatt said the articles included antisemitic tropes regarding Jewish power, money and its communal nature. He believes these tropes could stir up antisemitic behavior.

    "It is not just disappointing, it’s irresponsible that The New York Times took an issue that merits investigation, that necessitates serious exploration and framed it in such a way, which I think, again, isn’t just unhelpful, it can encourage more antisemitism," he said.

    Over several articles, the Times pointed out failing standardized test scores, lack of secular education and the amount of public funding the schools take. The reporting also featured interviews with former members of the community who alleged they were forced to keep their children in the yeshivas because of the power employed by community leaders and claimed the local government turns a blind eye away from corruption because of the community’s influence. The education at yeshivot, the report went on, deprives students of the means to make a living, leaving the hassidic community impoverished.

    According to Greenblatt, the ADL warned the Times to consider the impact of their reporting before the articles ran. He said top executives heard but did not listen. 

    New York Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein challenged the metrics in the Times report by claiming the exam results from New York yeshivot don’t match the Times’ reporting. Tablet’s Liel Leibovitz exposed other flaws in the Times’ accusations, noting that while the yeshiva education is different, that doesn’t mean it’s automatically worse.

    Rabbi Avi Shafran, director of public affairs for Agudath Israel of America, a national Orthodox Jewish organization, wrote in a Religious News Service opinion piece: “The Times let a disgruntled minority speak for an entire system. Its reporters relied on interviews with ex-hassidim, some of whom remained anonymous. Why did the article’s writers not speak with any of the vast majority of hassidic parents or former students who cherish the education offered by their yeshivas? The writers say members of the hassidic community wouldn’t speak with them. That’s unsurprising, considering the Times’ record of negativity toward haredim. But a reporter’s job is still to work to find the necessary interviewees to present all sides of an issue.”

    125% increase in NYC antisemitic hate crimes in November

    Antisemitic hate crimes across New York City's five boroughs more than doubled in November 2022 from the same month a year ago, New York Police Department (NYPD) data revealed. There were 45 hate crimes motivated by antisemitism in November 2022 versus 20 in November 2021, according to the NYPD data.

    The chief spokesman presented actual audio recordings in which Islamic Jihad members say out loud that they are responsible for the explosion.

    IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Daniel Hagari on Wednesday laid out the IDF's full comprehensive intelligence case to prove that an Islamic Jihad failed rocket caused the damage Tuesday night to a Gaza hospital, leading to a still-unclear, but large, number of Palestinian civilian deaths.

    The chief spokesman presented actual audio recordings in which Islamic Jihad members say out loud that they are responsible for the explosion.

    Hagari also presented a detailed video on top of earlier videos put out by Israel's public relations apparatus showing different stages of the rocket's trajectory and the layout of the hospital being hit.

    The press conference was highly unusual in terms of making signals and other military surveillance intelligence available to the public, showing Israel's realization that how the incident is perceived has strategic importance for global support or opposition to the next stages of the war, especially the anticipated ground invasion, which has already seemed on pause for nearly a week.

    — افيخاي ادرعي (@AvichayAdraee) October 18, 2023 Hagari said, "The IDF has concluded an after-action review and confirmed that the Islamic Jihad was responsible for the strike," on the Gaza hospital.

    "We did an immediate review for all relevant branches of the IDF," he said.

    Next, he said, "At 6:15 p.m., a barrage of rockets was fired by Hamas at Israel." At 6:50 p.m., a barrage of 10 rockets was fired by Islamic jIhad from a nearby cemetery, he said. Further, at 6:59 pm., there were reports of an explosion at the hospital. According to our intelligence, Hamas checked reports, and itself understood that it was as Islamic Jihad rocket misfired and decided to launch a global media campaign to hide what happened, he said.

    Hamas also inflated casualties, he stated.

    Moreover, he said the PIJ rocket was fired from a cemetery next to the hospital and hit a parking lot next to the hospital which likely had terror munitions, which caused further damage.

    He said there was visual evidence showing infrared imagery of the nearby parking lot.

    The IDF also confirmed there was no IDF fire by land, sea, or air which could have hit the hospital.

    On Tuesday night, Hagari had already given initially declared that "an analysis of IDF operational systems indicates a barrage of rockets was fired by terrorists in Gaza, passing in close proximity, to the hospital at the time it was hit.

    Hagari also shared aerial footage collected by a military drone that showed a blast that he said was inconsistent with Israeli weaponry. He said the explosion occurred in the building’s parking lot.

  46. Ben Cohen, ‘It Wasn’t An Airstrike’: Forthright Critic of Israeli Military Says IDF Not Responsible for Gaza Hospital Explosion, Algemeiner, Oct 19, 2023.
    A former Human Rights Watch (HRW) official with a long record of harsh criticism of Israeli military conduct has added his voice to the controversy around the explosion on Tuesday near the Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza City — saying clearly that an Israeli air strike was not responsible.

    “Whatever hit the hospital in Gaza, it wasn’t an airstrike,” Marc Garlasco — a former US Defense Department and UN official who previously served as a senior military expert with Human Rights Watch — stated in a post on X/Twitter.

    “Even the smallest JDAM [Joint Direct Action Munition, a guided air-to-surface weapon] leaves a 3m crater,” Garlasco added, alongside a photograph of the impact crater in the car park adjacent to the hospital that, according to Israeli and US intelligence, was struck by a misfired missile launched against Israel by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group.

    “Widespread surface damage and total lack of cratering inconsistent with an airstrike,” Garlasco noted.

    During his career at HRW from 2003-2010, Garlasco authored three highly critical reports of Israel’s military, focusing on the use of white phosphorous in Gaza, cluster munitions in Lebanon, and the demolition of Palestinian homes in Rafah, at the southern end of the Gaza Strip. In 2006, Garlasco was directly challenged by Maj. Gen. Meir Klifi of the IDF over his assertion that eight members of a Palestinian family had been killed at a Gaza beach by artillery shells fired by Israeli forces. After meeting with Klifi, Garlasco revised his conclusion, saying that the deaths were more likely caused by unexploded Israeli ordinance.

  63. How the @NYTimes slanders Israel while adhering to narrow journalistic standards, EoZ, May 31, 2023.
    ...the bias and innuendo is stark to the point of slander.

    The suffering Palestinian families are given paragraph after paragraph of detailed sympathy, while the victims in Israel are nameless statistics.

    The article includes ten photographs of damage in Gaza and grieving victims. When was the last time you saw any newspaper article show ten photographs? Those photos give the impression of widespread damage in Gaza, when in fact the amount of damage was very limited - and far, far less than other wars. 

    It says that there were 9-12 civilians killed - but doesn't mention that they were killed in the course of targeting and killing over 20 terrorists. This makes the ratio of innocent victims killed one of the lowest in the history of airstrikes. 

    The article pretends to be even-handed by quoting Israeli responses - usually adding a "but" to dismiss what they say.

    Abdulrahim generously uses quotes from families of victims that contain bald-faced lies - but the New York Times is not obligated to factcheck a quote or an opinion. For example:

    “What kind of precision is this when you kill civilians?” said Asmahan Adas, referring to a strike on the home of her next-door neighbor, Khalil al-Bahtini, another Islamic Jihad commander, that also killed her two teenage daughters. “When Israel wants to kill someone, they can find many different ways to kill, but they want others to die along with their target.”

    Or the subhead: "Palestinians in Gaza say that Israel’s strikes against Islamic Jihad amount to a collective punishment aimed at making them fearful about who their neighbors might be."

    Abdulrahim even quotes an Islamic Jihad terrorist whose lies are clear - but doesn't call them out:

    Khaled al-Batsh, an Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza, said his group’s members lived in their own communities in the tiny enclave that is home to more than 2.3 million people. “Where should we go? Should we flee Palestine? Can we go set up a military base in Colorado?” he said. “They target[sic] the civilians so they can pit people against us.” '

    Given that Israel killed Islamic Jihad leaders who lived in apartments next to civilians, obviously al-Batch is lying. And he is just a obviously lying saying that Israel chooses to murder innocent people. But the article doesn't call out these lies, and lets a terrorist speak without any opposition.  Unlike quoting Israeli sources, there is no "but" here.

    That is the message that the New York Times is spreading with this article, that Israel could have avoided civilian deaths and chose to murder innocent people anyway. It is slanderous. But the article never says this directly, instead letting the quotes from Gazans stand alone as if they were factual.

    This is some of the bias in the article's contents.  But that is only a small part of how this article is lying in effect.

    The main way that this article gives an entirely wrong message while adhering to a narrow set of facts is by omitting a huge amount of context - context that a fair reporter would seek out. 

    It doesn't mention that under international law,  the existence of civilians around a military target does not make that target immune from attack. In other words, Israeli airstrikes on major Islamic Jihad leaders are perfectly legal under international law of armed conflict. Instead, Abdulrahim quotes an Amnesty report claiming (falsely) that Israel violated international law in previous conflicts in Gaza.

    It doesn't mention that the ratio of civilians killed compared to militants is perhaps the lowest in any airstrikes on urban areas where the targets live among the people in history.

    It doesn't mention that the ratio of civilians killed compared to militants is perhaps the lowest in any airstrikes on urban areas where the targets live among the people in history.

    It doesn't mention the huge amount of time and money, not to mention the number of legal checks, that Israel uses before choosing a target.

    It makes it sound like Israel could have somehow killed only Islamic Jihad targets without hurting any civilians - but does not say exactly how. 

    It does not interview any military experts. It does not interview any international law experts. 

    The entire article is meant to give an impression on readers that Israel is acting wantonly, that it is violating international law, that it either doesn't care about or deliberately chooses to target civilians, without saying those things explicitly and without giving any easy-to-find facts that would undermine that entire narrative.
  64. What the @NYTimes left out from their story on Palestinian kids wanting to be "martyrs, EoZ, July 5, 2023.

    Raja Abdulrahim continues in her tradition of using her platform as a New York Times reporter to shade the facts away from the reality...Palestinian society is suffused with turning all those killed by Israel into heroes. Just calling them "martyrs" is a powerful incentive. TV programs celebrate "martyrs," schools and camps and sports tournaments are named after "martyrs," the Palestinian Authority and Hamas pay families of "martyrs" - it is a death cult where being killed is the surest way of being honored. And this is a society that craves honor.

     Yet outside the half sentence on how Palestinian society lionizes "martyrs," Abdulrahim doesn't describe this fundamental part of Palestinian society. She tries to make this sick mindset relatable to the West, pretending that the kids have no choice in a place where they have no future. 

    Think about it. There are about two million Palestinians under 20. The number who are killed is a tiny percentage of that number, while many more go on to live dignified and successful lives. But there are  few if any TV shows and music videos about them. 

    When a child gets killed by Israel, he (or she) is instantly hailed as a hero by their media, social media and role models. That is the reason so many choose to go that route - not desperation, not because of "no choice." They are not being given any mainstream messages that getting killed while attacking Jews is stupid or counterproductive or evil. They do it because they want to, not because they are forced to, and their entire culture supports this goal, implicitly or explicitly.

    That's the story the article is purposefully ignoring. Instead of blaming the Palestinian leaders - teachers, actors, musicians, poets, and other role models - for creating a death-centered culture, it pretends that somehow the Israelis have given them no choice but to want to get killed. ..

    Is anyone - anyone at all - telling the kids to stay off the streets when there is an IDF raid? They aren't shooting at innocent people's houses. Only the ones who want to act macho and throw firebombs or shoot guns  are the ones getting killed. It isn't a difficult concept to stay away from the fighting, but one that is apparently too difficult for adults and other role models to tell the kids. 

    The solution is obvious: to shame the people who commit suicide by IDF instead of honoring them. If the message in the Palestinian media is to teach kids to grow up and to try to build a  decent society, instead of turning terrorists into heroes, things would change in weeks. 

    But no one wants to talk about solutions (unless it is the State of Israel committing collective suicide.) 

    This is a systemic failure of Palestinian society - and that is something the New York Times will never, ever discuss.

  69. NYT reportedly cuts Gaza stringer loose for urging murder of Israelis, ILH, August 14, 2022.

    The New York Times cut ties with Gaza-based stringer Fady Hanona after Honest Reporting uncovered a string of his antisemitic social media posts, the watchdog said Saturday. Honest Reporting published a list of post by Hanona, who was a contributor to at least six articles published by the Times during the latest flareup of violence in the Gaza Strip. Most recently, he shared a now-deleted propaganda video of terrorist groups in Jenin on Facebook, calling on Palestinians to return to "the culture of fighting and killing Israelis." "I don’t accept a Jew, Israeli or Zionist, or anyone else who speaks Hebrew. I’m with killing them wherever they are: children, elderly people, and soldiers," Hanona wrote. "The Jews are sons [sic] of the dogs… I am in favor of killing them and burning them like Hitler did. I will be so happy."… Then, on August 18, 2014 – days before a ceasefire took effect between Israel and Hamas — he urged the Palestinian "resistance" to reject a truce and continue its missile attacks on Tel Aviv, which had at that point already cost the lives of five civilians. In another post from the same month, he went as far as invoking Adolf Hitler to support his point about the strength of Gazan fighters. "As Hitler said, give me a Palestinian soldier and a German weapon, and I will make Europe crawl."

    According to Honest Reporting, Hanona has also been hired by the BBC, The Guardian, and VICE News. The wathdog has called on the media outlets to terminate his employment as well.

  71. News Desk, New York Times reporter called for a Hitler-type genocide of Jews, BLiTZ, August 19, 2022.

    The New York Times reporter Fady Hanona is just one of hundreds of Jew-haters associated with the American media. The Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was one of the bitterest critics of Jews and Israel and a defender of Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Still, in the eyes of Wash Post and majority of the US media – he is a “hero”. Similarly, NYT found a perfect reporter as Fady Hanona to fill pages of this newspaper with Jew hatred. And most painful fact is – Fady Hanona would continue working for The New York Times unless his nefarious writings were exposed by Honest reporting, a pro-Israel advocacy and media watchdog. Most disturbing fact is – Fady Hanona is not only a reporter of The New York Times. He also works for BBC, The Guardian, VICE News, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, RTÉ, The National, and Germany’s Die Welt.

    According to the Israel Hayom report, Honest Reporting published a list of post by Hanona, who was a contributor to at least six articles published by the New York Times during the latest flareup of violence in the Gaza Strip. Most recently, he shared a now-deleted propaganda video of terrorist groups in Jenin on Facebook, calling on Palestinians to return to “the culture of fighting and killing Israelis”.

    “I don’t accept a Jew, Israeli or Zionist, or anyone else who speaks Hebrew. I’m with killing them wherever they are: children, elderly people, and soldiers”, Hanona wrote. “The Jews are sons of the dogs… I am in favor of killing them and burning them like Hitler did. I will be so happy”. A spokesperson for The New York Times told Algemeiner Journal, the paper “had worked with this freelance reporter only in recent weeks. We are no longer doing so”.

    Honest Reporting also said that during the 2014 IDF operation in Gaza, known as Guardian of the Walls, Hanona took to social media to threaten the murder of Ghassan Alian, an Israeli Druze who commanded the IDF’s Golani Brigade at the time. Then, on August 18, 2014 – days before a ceasefire took effect between Israel and Hamas — he urged the Palestinian “resistance” to reject a truce and continue its missile attacks on Tel Aviv, which had at that point already cost the lives of five civilians. In another post from the same month, he went as far as invoking Adolf Hitler to support his point about the strength of Gazan fighters. “As Hitler said, give me a Palestinian soldier and a German weapon, and I will make Europe crawl”.

    According to Honest Reporting, Hanona has also been hired by the BBC, The Guardian, and VICE News. The watchdog has called on the media outlets to terminate his employment as well. Commenting on The New York Times decision to sack Fady Hanona, Honest Reporting said: While the NYT’s swift action is to be commended, the incident casts serious doubt on the media’s ability to properly vet the integrity of their local sources. Seemingly, at least eight news outlets failed to take notice of Hanona’s antisemitic past — or they willfully turned a blind eye to it.

    In 2021, Hanona came out in support of arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti, repeatedly backing him in now-deleted Facebook entries. Prior to his incarceration, Barghouti co-founded and headed the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, an organization that murdered dozens of Israelis in suicide bombings and shooting attacks during the Second Intifada (2000-2005). The fact that the British public broadcaster has yet to distance itself from Hanona is particularly egregious. Just months ago, Honest Reporting helped bring to public attention numerous antisemitic tweets written by BBC journalist Tala Halawa, including a post stating that “Hitler was right”.

    Notably, Halawa was part of the BBC team responsible for covering the May 2021 Gaza war. After a month-long investigation, she was fired.

    Research shows time after time that news consumers regard objectivity to be one of the most important litmus tests for professional journalism. Reporting the facts — without agendas and biases — is widely understood to be the media’s prime function.

  75. An Idiot’s Guide to Glowing Coverage in the New York Times, Washington Free Beacon, January 27, 2023.

    Searching for sympathetic coverage from the New York Times? Here’s a hack: Earn an advanced degree, then commit a violent crime in the service of your radical politics.

    We have closely followed the cases of Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis, the New York City attorneys who tossed a Molotov cocktail into a police cruiser in May of 2020. Or, as the New York Times put it, their legal careers were sidetracked when "a Molotov cocktail ignited the center console of an empty police car during a Black Lives Matter protest." Rotten luck!

    Rahman went to Fordham. Mattis went to Princeton and NYU. They are precisely the sort of well-resourced and well-connected people that the New York Times is always telling us the criminal justice system favors—unjustifiably.

    The Trump administration reached a plea deal with the defendants that discarded six of the seven counts against them, but argued that the incident qualified for a so-called terrorism enhancement that would have made them eligible for steeper prison sentences. Then the Biden Justice Department rolled out the red carpet, allowing Rahman and Mattis to cop to a lesser charge and pressing the court for a light sentence.

    Enter the New York Times, on the eve of Mattis’s sentencing, for a window into how the mainstream media’s blinkered view of the world skews news coverage. The paper omitted the details of Team Biden’s lenient approach but swooped in to inform readers that Rahman and Mattis are “both first-time offenders” who “had been high achievers.” Rahman was “the primary caretaker of her aging mother,” Mattis of three foster children.

    Funny, we never got those sorts of loving details about the hundreds of January 6 defendants…

  105. Allie Griffin, Al-Zawahiri killed at home of Taliban lackey New York Times gave platform to, NY Post, August 3, 2022.

    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed at the home of an FBI-wanted Taliban lackey who was once given a platform by the New York Times. The jihadist, one of the planners of the Sept. 11 attacks, was taken out by a CIA drone strike Sunday morning at a Kabul home belonging to senior Taliban official Sirajuddin Haqqani, according to initial reporting by the Gray Lady herself. The publication infamously published an op-ed penned by Haqqani — the leader of the insurgent Haqqani Network in Afghanistan linked to brutal and deadly attacks — to ask for a peace agreement between US and Afghan leaders in 2020. The paper was slammed by critics and even its own reporters for giving the global terrorist a megaphone to thousands of readers to spew what many saw as thinly veiled propaganda. The Times defended its decision to publish the piece at the time. “For more than four decades, precious Afghan lives have been lost every day. Everyone has lost somebody they loved. Everyone is tired of war. I am convinced that the killing and the maiming must stop,” Haqqani wrote.

    “We did not choose our war with the foreign coalition led by the United States. We were forced to defend ourselves...

  122. Fr. George Rutler. Recollections of Reagan.

We dissidents were ecstatic. Finally, the leader of the free world had spoken the truth — a truth that burned inside the heart of each and every one of us.””
