Sounds like Ms. Mandavilli needs to be busted back down to copy boy

| No Comments

What newspaper you ask?  New York Times of course.  From the ever-wonderful London Daily Mail:

NYT issues embarrassing correction after reporting 900,000 children have been hospitalized in US with Covid when true figure is 63,000: Science reporter who claimed Wuhan lab leak theory has 'racist roots' made series of errors

    • Apoorva Mandavilli missed the actual figure of children hospitalized for Covid in the US by 837,000
    • That was far from the article's only error. The piece also incorrectly described actions taken by Sweden and Denmark and botched the timing of FDA's meeting
    • The mistake comes after Mandavilli angered Twitter users back in May when she claimed the theory that Covid was leaked from a Wuhan lab has 'racist roots'
    • Her flip-flop on the issue reflected that of the larger mainstream media, which originally dismissed the idea that the virus originated in a lab studying bats

The New York Times issued a correction on Friday after a reporter said 900,000 children have been hospitalized in the US with Covid-19 when the true figure is a tiny fraction of that: 63,000.

The mistake was made by the Times' health and science reporter Apoorva Mandavilli, who took to Twitter back in May to claim the theory that coronavirus was leaked from a Wuhan lab has 'racist roots'.

She also printed a couple other howlers - more at the article. But...  Her writings fit the narrative.  Got to push that narrative.

Much much more at the site including 640+ comments.  The NY Times has serious integrity issues. They used to be a good newspaper but now, they are just the print-media wing of the progressive party. Sad really. The Daily Mail runs rings around them for accurate reporting.  No comparison.
