The deletion of the telling "occupation forces" slip-up can't conceal the writers' devotion to serving as obedient Hamas mouthpieces. When it comes to Hamas talking points, buzzing flies prove dead bodies. But when it comes to Israeli claims, even weapons can't prove weapons.
After issuing a mea culpa about its botched coverage of the Ahli hospital, New York Times coverage has only gotten worse. They continue to push incendiary allegations, while diluting and concealing Israeli denials.
