FAIL: New York Times Now-Deleted 9/11 Memorial Tweet Was HORRENDOUSLY Bad

Written by K. Walker on September 11, 2019

Hoo-boy! Someone is going to be in trouble for this one!

Hot on the heels of the tweet praising Mao Zedong, the social media guru at the New York Times fails again.

On the 18th anniversary of 9/11, The New York Times tweeted a link to an article remembering the victims of the terrorist attack. But because it’s the New York Times, and quite frankly, the “Gray Lady” just ain’t what she used to be, the tweet did not include the actual cause of the attack — Islamic terrorism.

Perhaps after 8 years of doe-eyed fawning of President Obama, the Times can’t say “radical Islamic Terror” either.

The tweet was up for just over an hour this morning.

It read:

“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died.” (Emphasis added)

Screenshot for posterity:

Airplanes took aim?

Are you kidding me?

Who wrote this, Rep. Ilhan “Some People Did Something” Omar(D-MN)?

They issued a notice that the tweet was deleted.

The blasting that they received from Twitter users likely prompted the move. There were NO positive comments on a 9/11 memorial post. That’s gotta be some kind of record.

Careful! That “Learn to code” aimed at “journalists” could get you suspended from Social Media(D).

These Media(D) people are the ones that decide what is and is not news. Frankly, they don’t report the news anymore, they editorialize it and cry and whine when they’re called “Fake News.”

They also push back against conservative outlets like ClashDaily that dare to do the same damned thing that they do — except for the fact that we are open about it. Actually, it might be the openness that they are objecting to.

You wouldn’t want a world where all you get is leftism shoved at you, would you?
