NY Times Inflates Covid Kid Hospitalizations by Over 800,000
The New York Times (NYT)—news you can trust! For instance, they were only off on the number of children hospitalized due to Covid by. . .800,000+. And if you aren’t already shocked by that, the real number of Covid kid hospitalizations was about 63,000 (instead of the reported “nearly 900,000”), meaning that an approximate 93% of the reported kid hospitalizations from NYT were false. The real pandemic right now is fake news.
Fox News reported on NYT’s massive blunder:
“The New York Times issued a massive correction Thursday after the liberal newspaper severely misreported the number of COVID hospitalities among children in the United States by more than 800,000.
A report headlined ‘A New Vaccine Strategy for Children: Just One Dose, for Now,’ by science and health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli, was peppered with errors before major changes were made to the story. The Times initially reported ‘nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized’ with COVID since the pandemic began, when the factual data in the now-corrected version is that ‘more than 63,000 children were hospitalized with Covid-19 from August 2020 to October 2021.’
The paper also botched actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark and even bungled the timing of a critical FDA meeting.
‘An earlier version of this article incorrectly described actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark. They have halted use of the Moderna vaccine in children; they have not begun offering single doses. The article also misstated the number of Covid hospitalizations in U.S. children. It is more than 63,000 from August 2020 to October 2021, not 900,000 since the beginning of the pandemic. In addition, the article misstated the timing of an F.D.A. meeting on authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children. It is later this month, not next week,’ the lengthy correction stated in full.”
Journalist Glenn Greenwald ridiculed The NY Times as well, and recalled that the story’s reporter (Mandavilli) also has said “the coronavirus ‘lab-leak’ theory had ‘racist roots,’” as Fox put it.
“Many observers also mocked the paper for printing that Mandavilli ‘is the 2019 winner of the Victor Cohn Prize for Excellence in Medical Science Reporting’ directly below the correction.
Rutgers University professor Richard H. Ebright feels the prize is ‘awarded to the dimmest candles on the science stenographer cake.’
‘Basically it has devolved to being an award for diligence in group think and virtue signaling,’ he added.”
With outrageous lies like the above, it’s no wonder Americans don’t trust the media anymore. They’re shoving a narrative down our throats without any regard for facts.
