New York Times Fake News on Climate Change

Written by Joe Scudder

The Daily Caller exposed more New York Times fake news that pretended the Trump Administration might suppress a report.

What’s so aggravating about New York Times fake news is how obvious it is. What kind of “journalists” would take a climate change report off the web that had been there since January and claim that they were releasing it to the public for the first time? They actually presented the report as new information that the Trump Administration would suppress the report.

The Daily Caller reports, “NYT Admits Its Front Page Climate Change Article Was Wrong.

“An article on Tuesday about a sweeping federal climate change report referred incorrectly to the availability of the report,” TheNYT wrote in its correction issued Wednesday morning. “While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times.”

TheNYT ran a front page article Tuesday claiming to have exclusively obtained a draft climate report that “directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet” on global warming.

Unnamed scientists told TheNYT they feared the Trump administration would suppress the climate report. The report is part of the National Climate Assessment that’s released to the public every four years.

It almost seems unbelievable that a major newspaper would put out such a false story, meant to give the impression that the President is suppressing documents, on its front page. But maybe it is all too believable.
