Congressmen join former ambassador to Israel and journalists in slamming the newspaper.
Remember layers and layers of fact checkers and copy editors …. The NY Times now apologizes and is sorry that the paper is run by alt-right extremist editors spreading Nazi hate (oh, wait, they didn’t quite say that, but one of their columnists suggested this cartoon might be appropriate for a Nazi publication).
The way to respond to accusations of fictional news reporting is to double down on accuracy, objectivity and remaining calm. Unfortunately, the news industry continues to harm itself through self destructive behavior typical of middle school drama, such as this fiasco from the NY Times.
