Hey, New York Times: Where are the Fact Checkers?

New York Times"Jerusalem Outings Go Beyond the Biblical," a New York Times travel article, was yet another example of the decline in standards and the absence of fact-checking at the country’s – if not the world’s – leading newspaper. For example,  former PM Ariel Sharon was said to be "implicated" in the Deir Yassin "massacre." Sharon, of course, took no part in the Deir Yassin battle. (The Times ran a partial correction after being contacted by CAMERA.)
