Mike Johnson And Nikki Haley Call Out The New York Times For Publishing Hamas Leader’s Op-Ed

via ABC News

House Speaker Mike Johnson and Republican presidential primary candidate Nikki Haley criticized the New York Times for publishing an op-ed by Yahya R. Sarraj, the Hamas-appointed mayor of Gaza City.

Sarraj condemned Israel’s actions against Hamas and accused Israel of causing the deaths of over 20,000 people and destroying half the buildings in Gaza.

Johnson questioned the NYT’s decision to provide a platform for a politician appointed by a group designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government. (Trending: Trans Athlete Breaks College Record After Joining Women’s Team)

“The New York Times provided a platform to a politician appointed by Hamas — the group designated by America as a foreign terrorist organization and responsible for the heinous October 7th massacre,” Johnson wrote.

“Does the NYT have no shame?”

Haley also criticized the NYT, contrasting the response to Sarraj’s op-ed with the controversy over a 2020 column by Sen. Tom Cotton, highlighting what she perceives as a double standard in the media.

“Remember when New York Times staff threw a tantrum over a Republican senator’s op-ed?” Haley said.

“We heard no complaints from NYT staff about publishing an op-ed by a Hamas-appointed mayor over Christmas. That tells you everything you need to know about the state of our media,” Haley added.
