The New York Times has made a lot of blunders in the past few years. Between printing an anti semitic cartoon of Trump and Netanyahu to today blaming Airplanes for the 9/11 attack. Seemingly desperate to not mention who committed the actual attacks.
It was quickly pointed out to the Times that “airplanes” were not responsible for taking the lives of nearly 3,000 (a great deal “more than 2,000”) innocent Americans, but the radical Islamic terrorists who were flying the planes.
The tweet was quickly deleted and the story amended. “We’ve deleted an earlier tweet to this story and have edited for clarity. The story has also been updated,” the Times wrote in a reply to the new tweet.
18 years after nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead — one by one — will be recited,” the edited post now reads.
“Mao Zedong died on this day in 1976: The Times said he ‘began as an obscure peasant’ and ‘died one of history’s great revolutionary figures,'” the now-deleted tweet said.
“We’ve deleted a previous tweet about Mao Zedong that lacked critical historical context,” the newspaper posted hours later.
