Pro-Palestinian protesters frustrated with The New York Times’ coverage of Israel’s war against Hamas took over the lobby of its headquarters temporarily.
BreakThrough News posted the video on X, formerly known as Twitter, and wrote, “Media workers have taken over the lobby of the New York Times headquarters in NYC in protest of their biased coverage of Palestine.”
“They are reading from newspapers bearing the names of the thousands of Gazans murdered by Israel in the last month,” the post added.

Oh, the irony.
Sure, the Times is not publishing articles sympathetic to Palestinians every single day. But to claim they are overwhelmingly biased in favor of Israel is ridiculous.
Just one example is the paper’s decision to run with Hamas’ false claim Israel bombed a hospital and killed hundreds of people without any evidence — or any clarification that the claim had not been verified in its initial coverage.

It took almost a week for the paper to admit, “We messed up.” It then furiously tried to defend itself by noting it updated the story after it was published.
However, the damage was done, and the admission it promoted false claims was not given the same prominent position as the first story about the hospital explosion.
Meanwhile, the paper hired a Palestinian filmmaker who has previously praised Adolf Hitler to assist with its coverage of the war. The Times insisted it has taken a “variety of actions to ensure he understood our concerns and could adhere to our standards if he wished to do freelance work for us in the future.”
So sure, the Times may not be publishing every single unverified story out of Gaza and criticizing Israel after terrorists killed at least 1,400 people.
But it is not as though it is just publishing propaganda for Israel.
