Biden Reportedly Raged Over New York Times’ Coverage Of Israel-Hamas

via Guardian News

President Joe Biden reportedly criticized The New York Times’ coverage of an explosion near a Gaza hospital during a meeting with Wall Street executives.

The Times’ headline, which blamed Israel for the explosion, was deemed irresponsible and potentially triggering military escalation in the Middle East.

The Times faced backlash for its coverage, which relied on unverified claims by Hamas.

The paper later apologized for not verifying the claims properly. The report was ultimately proven false by surveillance video, audio recordings, and other evidence.

The rocket was misfired by murderous Hamas terrorists from behind the hospital, killing hundreds of Palestinians.

“Israeli Strike Kills Hundreds in Hospital, Palestinians Say,” the original New York Times headline read on Oct. 17.

The Times soon released a lengthy editor’s note apologizing.

“The Times’s initial accounts attributed the claim of Israeli responsibility to Palestinian officials, and noted that the Israeli military said it was investigating the blast. However, the early versions of the coverage — and the prominence it received in a headline, news alert and social media channels — relied too heavily on claims by Hamas, and did not make clear that those claims could not immediately be verified. The report left readers with an incorrect impression about what was known and how credible the account was,” Times editors wrote.

The article also mentioned pressure on writers to not rely on the Gaza Health Ministry’s numbers, despite their consistency with other reports.

The meeting with Wall Street executives was seen as an attempt to manage a domestic political constituency withdrawing funding from universities over their response to Hamas attacks.

Other news organizations were also criticized for relying on the Gaza Health Ministry for initial reports.
