Posted on 09/11/2019 8:18:13 AM PDT by Red Badger
The New York Times tweeted and then deleted a comment Wednesday about the 9/11 attacks that suggested airplanes, not terrorists, were responsible for killing almost 3,000 people.
The article is about remembering those lost 18 years ago on 9/11, when terrorists overtook multiple planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Another plane crashed into a Pennsylvania field after citizens on board tried to take down the terrorists.
18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center, the NYT original tweet read. Terrorists were responsible for the 9/11 attacks, not airplanes.
The tweet was deleted shortly after, and the NYT wrote that the tweet and story had been edited for clarity. The article was changed shortly after to reflect that terrorists were responsible for killing almost 3,000 people.
The new tweet reads that 18 years after nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead one by one will be recited.
Before being edited, the NYT article also read that airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down. It now reflects that terrorists overtook the airplanes.
After announcing the story and tweet had been changed for clarity, the NYT began to receive pushback on social media.
The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Remote controlled? MUSLIM terrorists. Truth hurts, huh, MSM?
terrorists don’t kill people... planes do.
mediots. all of them.
Well, they did have auto pilot. They just weren’t full auto at the time of the “incident”. Just some people doing something right? Grrrrrrrrrrr! Firmly burned into my little pea brain is the image of a jumper from one of the upper floors. Yeah, pisses me off still!
Oh yes. Dont kid yourselves. Much of New York City surrendered
No civilian should be able to own or possess a plane.
What, you mean SUVs didn’t do it?
Americans. We've got the attention span of a gnat and the resolve of a fainting goat.
If only those Planes were 737 Max’s, right NYT?
It’s very consistent with their editorial policy on guns.
We must “do something” to stop plane violence.
SO BOMBS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PERAL HARBOR....WHAT A LARGER GROUP OF THE MOST STUPID PEOPLE ON EARTH.....DEMORATS AND THE NYT...
Over 40 years ago the New York Times was a paper to read. Today, the New York Times is a paper not to read and a laughing stock of lies and deceit. If fact, many people actually read (And get better factual information from) the National Enquirer.
“”Some airplanes did something.””
Keep in mind Omar’s some people did something means she’s saying the Jews blew it up.
This is much like blaming GUNS instead of the SHOOTERS.
Telling the truth is unpopular. Soon it may be illegal.
Yeah....you gotta watch those assault planes.....good grief.
