‘Look in the mirror’: New York Times ripped for warning about ‘deadly misinformation’

The New York Times was ridiculed this week after warning that “misinformation” about the recent Israeli-Palestinian conflict could prove deadly, with critics pointing out the newspaper’s own history of fake news.

“Misinformation about the violence between Israelis and Palestinians has run rampant on social media,” the newspaper declared on Twitter, pointing to an article by reporter Sheera Frenkel which highlighted some examples.

The Times also warned that the “effect of the lies could prove deadly,” citing Israel-based political analyst Arieh Kovler as an “independent” expert on the matter.

Social media users, however, were quick to point out that the newspaper has its own record of misinformation, as well as biased content on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
