Social media platform X, formerly known worldwide as Twitter, has come out both barrels blazing against the New York Times after they lied about the involvement Israel in the bombing of a hospital located in Gaza, a report that was later debunked and proven to be the result of action taken by the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas. What did they do? The company yanked the Times’ verification badge. Ouch.

“The Times ran an article on October 17 that trumpeted, ‘Israeli Strike Kills Hundreds in Hospital, Palestinians Say.’ The New York Times and CNN were also caught using images from different incidents that showed buildings that had been completely destroyed,” the Daily Wire stated.
In one of its first tweets about the bomb at al-Ahli al-Arab hospital, The New York Times used a photo from a different bombing site.

The mainstream media, which ditched objective standards of journalism and ethics a long, long time ago, are nothing more than propaganda makers designed to push forward leftist ideology on their audiences through narratives crafted and presented in various mediums. Part of the progressive platform these days is hatred for Israel and false narratives presenting them as colonists attempting to steal land from the Palestinians.
However, a quick study of history demonstrates that ever since the Conquest noted in the Old Testament, Israel has settled in the land formerly known as Caanan. Even when the country was taken over and its official government abolished, the primary population was Jewish. All the way up through the reestablishment of the Jewish state in 1948. But, hey, modern-day journalists have never allowed facts to get in the way of a good story, right?
Hi @andersoncooper, why are you showing footage of completely destroyed buildings and rubble when talking about the hospital parking lot explosion when neither of those things are present there? https://t.co/WALnzuA2XF

Footage that was captured on the ground revealed that not a single one of the buildings in the bombing incident was destroyed and there weren’t any impact craters made from an aerial bomb either.
Full footage from TASS, no impact craters, interior spaces appear to be intact. Injuries from flying glass appear to have occurred. pic.twitter.com/XCP8mG5YGx

Check out more details on this from the Daily Wire’s report:
Three days after the murderous Hamas attack, the Times, which has a history of anti-Israel reporting, changed a story, initially calling the murderers of Hamas “terrorists,” then changing that to “gunmen.”
In a story titled, “Hamas Leaves Trail of Terror in Israel,” the Times initially wrote, “As Israeli soldiers regain control of areas near Gaza that came under attack, they are finding evidence seen in videos and photos and confirmed by witness accounts of the massacre of civilians by Hamas terrorists.” Later, the Times changed the word “terrorists” to “gunmen.”
In the mid-twentieth century, the Times buried the Holocaust so it didn’t make the front pages, as described in “Buried by the Times: The Holocaust and America’s Most Important Newspaper.” In April 2019, the paper published a cartoon depicting former President Trump as a blind man wearing a skullcap while being led by Netanyahu, who was depicted as a dog on a leash with a Star of David collar.
The Jewish Council for Public Affairs researched 107 editorials on Israel and Jews published in the Times since 2016; David Bernstein, president and CEO of the organization, accused the Times of “a decided institutional bias” against Israel. Roughly a decade ago, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) published a pamphlet titled “Indicting Israel: New York Times Coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict,” that delineated the Times’ consistent bias against Israel.
This isn’t the first time this year that the Times has had its verification badge snatched off its profile by X, which at the time was still Twitter. I mean, the fact this happened twice should be an indication that you can’t trust a single word produced by the NY Times, right? Who still uses this outlet as their primary source of news anyway?
Elon Musk, owner of X, has ripped into the publisher several times in more than one post.
“The real tragedy of @NYTimes is that their propaganda isn’t even interesting,” he went on to write, including the newspaper’s social media handle in the post. “Also, their feed is the Twitter equivalent of diarrhea,” Musk added. “It’s unreadable. They would have far more real followers if they only posted their top articles. Same applies to all publications.”
