The New York Times has been caught again peddling fake news of children being hospitalized by COVID-19.

New York Times Caught Peddling Fake News Of Children Hospitalized By COVID-19

In an article published by New York Times reporter Apoorva Mandavilli on Wednesday, Times readers were told that “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began.”

A correction issued on Thursday notes that the correct number is 63,000 between August 2020 and October 2021, which means Mandavilli exaggerated the number of child hospitalizations by 837,000 cases.

The exaggeration was included in a report on the debate surrounding whether and how to vaccinate children.

Mandavilli has been a controversial figure at the Times for her ideologically-colored pandemic coverage. In May, she tweeted that:

“Someday we will stop talking about the lab leak theory and maybe even admit its racist roots. But alas, that day is not today.”

She later deleted the tweet but not before adding “a theory can have racist roots and still gather reasonable supporters along the way. Doesn’t make the roots any less racist or the theory any more convincing, though.”

The theory has not yet been disproved. To the contrary, it has picked up a number of prominent supporters in the scientific community, including former Times reporters Nicholas Wade and Donald McNeil.

McNeil was the lead coronavirus reporter at the publication prior to his being fired and smeared by the Times for uttering a racial epithet in the context of discussing its moral valence and grace on an educational trip several years ago.

The correction is notable as the nature of the threat that coronavirus poses to children figures heavily in the continued and often partisan debates over vaccine and mask mandates in schools.

Earlier, even the BBC was caught spreading propaganda and false claims on vaccines for children.

Meanwhile, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. has slapped a $10 million lawsuit against the New York Times for a false for and a damaging story on Coronavirus that was circulated throughout the Internet.

The NYT story was peddling the fake news that students returning from spring break became infected with the coronavirus because the school stayed open.

According to a new nationwide study almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases. The study shows how a pandemic was created on the myth of COVID Hospitalizations.

Also according to leaked NHS data more than half of those hospitalized with Covid-19 in the UK only tested positive after admission to the hospital.

  1. COVID-19 hype absolutely depends on public ignorance of statistics. Especially in the U.S., this in turn reflects the “innumeracy” which has been impervious to all education, public or private.

  2. It is essential that we recognize the truth behind anything labeled as ‘Public Ignorance’. The truth is that we the people of planet earth have been systematically reduced to the point were we are unable to obtain the enlightenment needed to sort out the facts in issues that affect us. We have been intellectually neutered through the use of toxic chemicals in our food, water, air, and medicine. When we add to this situation the fact that our economic stability has been lowered by a considerable degree, it is only fair to say that this ignorance is a dark pit that many to not have to ability to climb out of. All of this has been visited upon us with malice and forethought.
    We need to understand that if we were allowed to live lives free of mind-numbing toxins and paralyzing poverty, we would be standing up to the evil that is being pushed on us. The persons that are intentionally disabling up know this, that is why it is happening. Yes, they are insane with greed, their power comes from their money and in a wall-eyed rush to grab ever more and more money and power they are wreaking untold harm on us all.
