NYT Reporters Just Can’t Stop Lying

NYT Reporters Just Can’t Stop Lying

The New York Times’ reporters are on a mission to prove that their paper contains all the fake news that’s fit to print.

Times reporter Julie Bosman tweeted out a quote from a new article of theirs, claiming that President Trump told the nation’s governors during a conference call “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment – try getting it yourselves” – attempting to portray Trump as saying that he told the governors that they’ll be fighting the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic alone.

Of course, that’s not the full quote. Only when the quote is cut the exact way Bosman did do you get the impression Trump told governors they’re on their own. What he actually said (which is quoted correctly in the article) was just the opposite: “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment – try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

Or in other words, Trump said he would absolutely he helping the states – but they could take initiative to expedite the process if they so wish.

And she wasn’t the only Times reporter to deliberately misquote Trump when sharing the article – presumably because they assume their audience doesn’t actually read the articles they post (and I certainly can’t blame anyone for not reading what the Times reports). Mara Gay was also on the case to deliberately misrepresent Trump.

 

In the event that you forgot – Gay is the woman who recently divided 500 by 330 and got one million in a particularly hilarious on-air math error on MSNBC. She later claimed that racism explained the backlash to her authoritatively spoken math error, because why not?

And they weren’t the only ones. Here’s how the rest of the New York Times brain trust framed the story:

And in an on-brand move, CNN joined in on the daily fake news too:

Ironically, this comes just days after the Times’ Elaina Plott seemed perplexed by why distrust in the media is rising among Trump supporters.

I can’t imagine why!
