NY Times Admits It ‘Relied’ On Hamas Claims For False Palestinian Hospital Strike Story

“The report left readers with an incorrect impression about what was known and how credible the account was.”

In a recent development, the New York Times has acknowledged that it “relied too heavily on claims by Hamas” in its reporting on an explosion near a Palestinian hospital. The admission came after several media outlets, including the Times, reported claims made by Hamas that an Israeli airstrike on the Al-Ahli al-Arabi Hospital had resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people.

The initial accounts published by the Times attributed the claim of Israeli responsibility to Palestinian officials and highlighted the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. However, the Times now recognizes that it failed to independently verify these claims before publishing them.

The admission by the New York Times follows criticism from various sources, questioning the credibility and accuracy of the initial reporting. The outlet has acknowledged that it relied on incomplete information and failed to provide a balanced perspective.

“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,” an “editor’s note” from the site read. “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 Times admitted “the report left readers with an incorrect impression about what was known and how credible the account was.”

Elon Musk, the owner of the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), has removed the gold “verified” badge from The New York Times‘ account. This move follows the publication’s sharing of misleading information about the Israel-Hamas conflict, which included a false report that Israel bombed a hospital in Gaza.

The New York Times shared Hamas’ narrative of the hospital bombing, using a photograph of a different building to support the claim. However, subsequent reports revealed that the information was incorrect, leading to widespread criticism of the publication for spreading disinformation.

In response to this, Musk took action by stripping away the gold verification badge from The New York Times‘ official X account. The billionaire tech entrepreneur has previously emphasized the responsibility of media outlets to share accurate information and has been critical of those that fail to do so.

This is not the first time that The New York Times has lost its verification badge on the social media platform. Earlier this year, the publication’s badge was removed after it refused to pay a monthly $1,000 “verified organization” fee. Yet, the current removal seems to be a direct result of the misinformation spread during the Israel-Gaza war.

    This is exactly why so many of us no longer believe the so-called “main-stream-media”! I haven’t watched ANY of them for several years now, broadcast (TV, radio) and print!

    New York Times … you are commended for your attempt to straighten a published story, but my 50+ year doubts still exist along with your proven ineptness at being only who you occasionally portray yourselves as being. Right – honest – and true to the American People which in the end … you are not. You do have the assets for turning your organization around to tremendous readership and ratings if you would ever side yourselves with a conservative leaning writer and editorial staff – miracles can happen if the soul is willing. Surprise us and the world with inner-company conviction change and watch what will happen…!

      If you are a NYC yankee, you’re bound to believe that any NYC source is credible. Why AOC is the most sentient ECONOMICS expert ever to come out of NYC. BRAGG is the EPITOME of LAW knowledge. SO it goes.
      NYC is a BIG APPLE with a very large worm eating at its’ core.

    MUCH MORE CONSEQUENTIAL: Many Christians and patriots are colluding with today’s bogus Israelis and Jews regarding their alleged Israelite heritage.

    Do not misconstrue this as support for Hamas, however, for anyone thinking America’s obligated to back the country of Israel because the Israeli Jews are allegedly Abraham’s Israelite descendants, I wonder if the following quotations (all of them from recognized Jewish authorities) have something to say about the Zionists’ claims to alleged fulfilled prophecies and the never-ending Middle East conflicts:

    “Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew.’” (Richard Siegel and Carl Rheins, eds., “Identity Crisis,” The Jewish Almanac, (New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1980) p. 3.)

    That sentence is the opening sentence of the First Chapter entitled “Identity Crisis” of the 1980 Jewish Almanac. That today’s Jews are not genetic Israelites is also admitted in “The Jewish Encyclopedia,” the “Encyclopedia Judaica,” “The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia,” “The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia,” and by many of their historians.

    According to three Jewish encyclopedias and Flavius Josephus, the entire Edomite nation was forced into converting to Judaism and became known as Judahites at the time of the high priest John Hyrcanus (Maccabaeus):

    “…in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) … the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people.” (“Edom,” Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, Israel: Encyclopaedia Judaica Company, 1971) Volume 6, p. 378.)

    “They were then incorporated with the Jewish nation….” (“Edom, Idumea,” The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Volume V, p. 41.)

    “…from then on they constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod [King of Judea] being one of their descendants.” (Cecil Roth and Geoffrey Wigoden, “Edom (Idumea),” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977) p. 589.)

    “…they submitted to the use of circumcision, and the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time … they were hereafter no other than Jews.” (Flavius Josephus, “The Antiquities of the Jews,” Josephus, (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Publications, 1960) Book XIII, Chapter IX, Verse 1, p. 279.)

    We keep hearing that if we don’t bless the modern State of Israel (which America has been doing since at least 1948) that we will be cursed. However, it seems it’s been just the opposite, Since 1948, you name it, and there’s not an area in America wherein she hasn’t become worse off.

    Could it because America has identified the wrong people as Israel.

    Today’s Jews are not the only ones with an identity crisis.
