‘NY Times’ continues whitewashing its dishonest 2018 podcast, ‘Caliphate,’ which was downloaded by millions

The New York Times is trying again to whitewash its dishonest, sensationalist 2018 podcast, called “Caliphate,” but the paper’s coverup attempt can’t withstand even a quick inspection. The Times yesterday ran a report about a hapless Canadian who admitted in a courtroom that he had made up bloodthirsty stories about being an executioner for the […]

NYT runs interference for billionaires who don’t want their wealth taxed

Image Credit: Getty Images; Mike Blake/Reuters According to a White House analysis (9/23/21), the country’s 400 wealthiest families have an effective tax rate of just over 8%. At the New York Times (9/23/21), reporter Jim Tankersley was quick to cast doubt on the figure. According to Tankersley’s framing, the analysis “seeks to show a gap […]

Israel kills ‘innocent civilians’ in West Bank and Gaza– liberal Zionist admits in ‘NYT’

In today’s New York Times, Robert Wexler, a longtime Israel advocate and former Florida Congressman, says what our site has been saying for a while — the U.S. political debate over Israel/Palestine is veering left, and progressives are bringing an end to “unflinching [American] support for Israel.” [T]he debate over the Iron Dome system represents […]

New York Times: Iran’s Top Nuclear Scientist Was Assassinated By a Killer Robot Machine Gun

September 18, 2021 Source: The New York Times By Al Mayadeen New details emerged in a New York Times report, revealing that Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated by a killer robot machine gun. Cameras in this vehicle identified Fakhrizadeh and his position in the car sending this information back to the remote […]

‘NY Times’ fearmongers about the Iran nuclear deal, while ignoring Israel’s efforts to sabotage it

One U.S. publication just covered the stalled negotiations over the Iran nuclear deal fairly and honestly. Another ran a distorted, alarmist report that could have been written by Israel’s Hasbara Central propaganda department. The valuable report was in Responsible Statecraft, a new outlet that is gaining respect and influence but is still small. The biased […]

Manufacturing Lament

Ever since the United States began its withdrawal from Afghanistan, the mainstream media has implemented a full-court press in support of continued occupation. If you turned on the Sunday news shows you encountered all the usual suspects making the usual cases for perpetual war. Liz Cheney. Ryan Crocker. Nikki Haley. Ben Sasse. Pompeo. Cotton. Gingrich. […]

MSM slams Biden for ‘precipitous’ ‘catastrophic’ Afghanistan withdrawal, while left provides defenders

As we count down the last days of the American occupation of Afghanistan, the mainstream media have largely adopted a pro-war narrative of “catastrophe”: the U.S. should have stayed longer, Biden’s withdrawal is precipitous, the president has failed to secure all the good things that America brought to the people of Afghanistan/Kabul. The heartrending scenes […]

Journalists can’t have opinions…unless they want more war

Remember Peter Arnett? The New Zealand-born journalist won a Pulitzer Prize for his Vietnam coverage and was praised for his Gulf War reporting. During the Iraq War NBC began airing his reports from Baghdad, a city that most journalists had fled over safety concerns. In 2003 Arnett made a big mistake: he went on Iraqi […]

Biden Administration Will Advise Most Americans to Get a Booster Jab 8 Months After Vaccination

If you enjoyed your first two doses of the coronavirus vaccine, then today is your lucky day, because President Joe Biden will soon be recommending most Americans get themselves a coronavirus booster jab within eight months of being vaccinated. According to the New York Times, two administration officials confirmed the Biden administration will be pushing for […]

Exclusive: New York Times quashed COVID origins inquiry

The Times, according to two well-placed sources, refused to investigate the biggest story of our time. August 2, 2021 The Wuhan Institute of Virology (Getty) Written by: Dominic Green Atop editor at the New York Times instructed Times staffers not to investigate the origins of COVID-19, two Times employees confirmed today. ‘In early 2020,’ a veteran Times employee tells me, ‘I suggested to a […]

Twitter Suspends Science Writer After He Posts Results Of Pfizer Clinical Test

    Just yesterday, we discussed the censoring of a commentator by Twitter for merely expressing an opinion over the need for a “pause” on any federal mandates on Covid-19 as new research is studied. Now, a former New York Times science reporter, Alex Berenson, has been suspended for simply quoting the results from a […]

Reports on Turner-Brown battle for Ohio 11 leave out big difference between them, Israel

The August 3 primary for that open Ohio Congressional seat is getting national attention. Progressive Nina Turner, who has made critical comments about Israel, is leading in the polls; and as we have reported repeatedly, the “Democratic Majority for Israel” PAC is a lead funder of her chief rival, Shontel Brown, the chair of the […]

NYTimes Claims Western Heat Wave Caused by Climate Change Based on ‘Rapid Attribution’ Study

The New York Times claimed Wednesday that the recent heatwave in the western U.S. was caused by climate change, citing a “rapid attribution” that has not been peer-reviewed, and downplaying the uncertainty expressed by scientists about the causal link. The Times reported in an article titled “Climate Change Drove Western Heat Wave’s Extreme Records, Analysis Finds”: The extraordinary […]

Once again, the ‘NYTimes’ covers up Israel’s efforts to instigate the U.S. into conflict with Iran

Journalists are supposed to have subjects in their reports. You aren’t supposed to write, “It was said.” Instead: tell us who said it.  New York Times senior reporter David Sanger forgot that principle last week in his biased and inadequate account of the Biden administration’s Iran policy. Sanger suggests that Biden wants a broader “comprehensive” […]

Five Palestinians have been killed protesting illegal settlement — but ‘NYT’ covers ‘gentle stream’ in nearby kibbutz

Update: The day after this post appeared, the New York Times covered the illegal settlement, and buried the fact that several Palestinians have died protesting it. Last night Palestinians led a torchlit protest deep in the occupied West Bank against an “outpost” Jewish settlement that has been established on village lands in recent weeks. This […]

‘What should Israel do? Stop committing war crimes’ –Kristof’s bold step in ‘NYT’

As we keep saying, Palestinian solidarity reached a new benchmark in American media/politics during the May assault, and it would be remiss not to laud Nicholas Kristof’s column in the New York Times two days ago, “Were My Criticisms of Israel Fair?” It represents a great new position for a mainstream columnist: Hamas hitting Israel […]

‘NYT’ puts faces of 60+ slain Palestinian children on front page, at last

We need to acknowledge what an extraordinary moment this is. Mainstream media are finally focused on Israeli attacks on Palestinian children. The New York Times did the unprecedented, and devoted a huge portion of its front page to the images of 65 children, almost all of them Palestinian, killed during the recent onslaught. The accompanying […]

Stunning ‘NYT’ report on Israel’s occupation causing Palestinian ‘misery’ was a long time coming

New York Times readers were astonished yesterday at what was on their front page — a very long, moving account of how Palestinians experience Israel’s occupation of the West Bank. The article’s headlines set the tone: first, “The Misery at the Heart of the Conflict,” followed by “. . . for millions of Palestinians, the […]

Violent Gangs Target Jews, the New York Times Insists They Are ‘Overwhelmingly Peaceful’

Israel’s air strikes targeted entire families in Gaza — but U.S. media won’t pursue the story

Amira Hass is one of the most impressive and experienced journalists in Israel/Palestine. She writes for the respected daily Haaretz, where on May 19 she made an extraordinary charge — that the Israeli military, as part of its air assault on Gaza, “is wiping out entire Palestinian families on purpose.”  So far, no mainstream U.S. […]

New York Times News Article Faults Israel for ‘High Civilian Death Toll’ in Gaza

A taxi passes by in front of The New York Times head office, Feb. 7, 2013. Photo: Reuters / Carlo Allegri / File. A top-of-the-front page New York Times news article makes reference to what the article calls “the high civilian death toll” in Gaza. “The high civilian death toll and damage to civilian infrastructure […]

The ‘NY Times’ admits Israel’s military duped it — even as it misses the story about the war on Gaza

Today’s New York Times includes a remarkable article, in which the paper admits that Israel’s military duped it (and the rest of the mainstream U.S. media) yesterday. The Times report, although revealing, falls short in two areas: It nowhere explains that the Times has been tricked many times before, and it misses the much larger […]

Friedman’s analysis of the Palestinian uprising is silly, offensive — and leaves out key words, ‘Israeli apartheid’

The explosive news from Israel/Palestine gave Thomas Friedman, the New York Times foreign affairs columnist who portrays himself as a Middle East expert, a chance to start explaining why Palestinian resistance and Israeli repression have reached the highest level in years. In his column yesterday, he failed. He nowhere wrote the words “Israel apartheid,” or […]

Mainstream reports on Palestinian resistance in Sheikh Jarrah are unsurprisingly biased — but the ‘NY Times’ smuggles in some truths

It comes as no surprise that the U.S. (and British) mainstream media are ignoring or distorting the big and growing Palestinian resistance to evictions in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. But there is a sign of hope, as the New York Times correspondent did sneak some fairness into his report.  The mainstream media’s […]

‘NYT’ coverage of the Human Rights Watch ‘Apartheid’ report is a game-changer

Having grown up in a secular liberal Jewish family in and around New York City, I’ve been reading the New York Times daily since I was a kid – take it from me, that’s a long time. Since I started speaking out about the Israeli oppression of Palestinians after Operation Protective Edge in 2014, I’ve come […]

Tom Friedman’s foundation supports pro-Israel causes, including Islamophobic MEMRI (but he won’t tell you that)

It’s not news to anyone who follows the Israel/Palestine issue that the top foreign policy columnist at the New York Times takes a side. “Israel had me at hello,” Tom Friedman said in September 2019 at a New York temple. He said he’s worried that the next generation of Times columnists won’t be as reflexively […]

The ‘NY Times’ article on Human Rights Watch ‘apartheid’ report is largely an attack on the finding

Normally, the New York Times trusts Human Rights Watch and relies on the organization often. This April alone, for instance, the Times has already cited the group 12 times, using its expertise on rights violations in places as varied as Myanmar, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. But the Times’s respectful view disappeared suddenly yesterday — after Human […]

U.S. mainstream media hides or downplays Jewish supremacists who just carried out a ‘pogrom’ in Jerusalem

Last night, in the heart of Jerusalem, hundreds of Jewish supremacists, chanting “Death to Arabs,” attacked Palestinian passers-by; some 78 Palestinians were injured and 15 were hospitalized. IfNotNow, the activist organization of young American Jews, called the attacks “a pogrom.” In a surprise, the New York Times did report on the attack. Isabel Kershner’s article […]

Netanyahu ‘Had a Point’ About Iran Nuclear Deal, a Star New York Times Reporter Concedes

A taxi passes by in front of The New York Times head office, Feb. 7, 2013. Photo: Reuters / Carlo Allegri / File. A veteran New York Times reporter has conceded publicly that Prime Minister Netanyahu “had a point” when he warned against the Iran nuclear deal reached by President Barack Obama. For years, editorials […]

The ‘NY Times’ is whitewashing Israel’s efforts to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal

Even veteran observers of the New York Times’s zeal to protect Israel’s reputation will be astonished at the paper’s latest whitewash. The paper just published a long, sensible editorial endorsing the U.S. return to the Iran nuclear deal — without once mentioning Benjamin Netanyahu’s violent efforts to sabotage the agreement. Yesterday’s lead editorial in the […]
