NY Times Issues MASSIVE Correction: Wildly Overstated COVID Hospitalizations Among CHILDREN By Almost 1 MILLION

Editor’s Note:  Where are those “fact checkers” when you really need them?  Oh, that’s right, they work for the same Mockingbird, corporate-owned media.

One “incorrectly” described Sweden & Denmark halting use of Moderna Vaccines in children as offering single doses.

One “misstated” 900,000 for the actual number 63,000.

One “misstated” FDA meeting this week/not next month.

Not just one error, but rolling errors. Why hasn’t the NY Times been deplatformed?

Paper added over 800,000 to total of kids hospitalized with coronavirus

FOX News, October 9, 2021

In media news today, Amerca’s trust in media drops to an almost record low in a new survey, Nikki Haley hits back at CNN anchor Brianna Keilar over racism in America, and NBC News gets slammed for Dave Chappelle hit piece.

The New York Times issued a massive correction Thursday after the liberal newspaper severely misreported the number of COVID hospitalities among children in the United States by more than 800,000.

A report headlined “A New Vaccine Strategy for Children: Just One Dose, for Now,” by science and health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli, was peppered with errors before major changes were made to the story. The Times initially reported “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized” with COVID since the pandemic began, when the factual data in the now-corrected version is that “more than 63,000 children were hospitalized with Covid-19 from August 2020 to October 2021.”

The paper also botched actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark and even bungled the timing of a critical FDA meeting.

This certainly qualifies as harmful disinformation about COVID.
