Even WAPO Sees Lies in NYTimes

Today's Washington Post headline: "New York Times guilty of large screw-up on climate-change story."

In earlier blog, I commented on the completely political nature of this NY Times article.  As it turns out the facts are even worse than I thought.  The article is a complete and total fabrication, as noted by this morning's Washington Post.

Here is the main lie in the NY Times article:

“The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies, which has not yet been made public, concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now," said the NY Times article.

This is completely and utterly false.  The report had been available since January of this year, as was well known at the time this false article was written.  The report had been uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January and publicized by the NY Times itself in August.

These reporters probably knew that the report had long been public when they wrote the article and that NY Times' editors knew that it was a pack of lies as well.  If they did not know this they are simply incompetent.  But, far more likely is that the reporters and editors knew that they were lying and that the story was false at the time they wrote the article and at the time it was published.

Here is more of what the article said: “Scientists say they fear that the Trump administration could change or suppress the report.”  Really?  How could the Trump Administration suppress or change a report that had been public for eight months?  The Times did not address that, of course.

Here's another doozy lie in the NYTimes article: “Another scientist involved in the process, who spoke to The New York Times on the condition of anonymity, said he and others were concerned that it would be suppressed.”  Really?  So this unnamed, anonymous scientist  believed that a report that had been public for eight months was going to be "suppressed."   How stupid is that?

This article by the NY Times was a complete and total fabrication -- the epitome of fake news.  Nothing in this article was true, accurate or researched....nothing.  The writers and the editors knew that it was completely false.   And, it ran on the front page.

This is pretty typical of the NYTimes, as I have noted, over and over again in this blog.  The NYTimes is a hack, political rag with no regard for the truth.  Even the Washington Post has pointed this out now in today's edition.

In their rush to discredit the Trump Administration, the NY Times simply invents facts or publishes false facts knowingly.  The NY Times has no regard for the truth and the majority of their articles on the front page related to politics or economics are simply outright and deliberate fabrications designed to advance a political agenda.
