The New York Times Blames Airplanes For 9/11…

The New York Times is once again attempting to do damage control, after receiving a huge backlash from irate New Yorkers and indeed Americans around the country after publishing on the anniversary of the attack that it was “airplanes” that “took aim at the World Trade Center bringing them down.”


The incredulous headline appearing Wednesday morning, hours before family members, dignitaries, the media along with concerned citizens were to once again pay homage to the nearly 3,000 innocent lives lost at the site where the Twin Towers once stood.

The Times true to form attempted to recreate their own narrative by refusing to state the unbridled facts that on September 11th, 2001, two commercial jets high-jacked by “RADICAL ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS” on a suicide mission flew those two jets into the World Trade Center, eventually bringing them down…those were the facts then, and those are the facts now.

Yet the so-called “Paper of Record” seems to be having trouble printing the “news.” Here’s what the paper attempted to peddle, “Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down.”

Even more astounding the NYT used the opening paragraph to promote the article titled “Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11.”  However, in their promotion, the paper has the actual number of individuals killed at 2,000, rather than the 3,000 actually lost on that faithful day. This is no small typo which perhaps illustrates a much wider issue regarding those who work at the New York Times, which has also has a history of employing an assortment of bigots, including an openly hostile anti-Semite.

This egregious incident by the NYT’s attempt to downplay and whitewash the culprits who changed forever the lives of so many is reminiscent of another openly anti-Semitic Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar who recently tweeted out during a pro-Muslim event regarding the sneak attack on 9/11 that “some people did something.”


The similarities didn’t go unnoticed on social media, as many pointed out that the NYT headline and Omar’s ambivalence towards the victims sounded almost like one-and-the-same.

“Did Omar and Tlaib write that article?”

Another Twitter follower posted, “Some planes did something!”

While another used a bit of sarcasm in describing the Times headline.

“Man, those towers really must have done something to upset those airplanes.”

By early morning the firestorm became so intense, the NYT decided to delete the tweet and edit out the egregious reference to airplanes.

“We’ve deleted an earlier tweet to this story and have edited for clarity. The story has also been updated.”

“18 years after nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead — one by one — will be recited.

Earlier this year the NYT succumbed to another intense backlash, however this time it was from their radical leftist base of readers who forced executive editor Dean Baquet to change a headline regarding a speech President Trump gave in response to the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

The original headline that was published in the early edition reported on the Presidents consoling speech to the nation after the duel mass shootings that read “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.”

It was perhaps the only time the NYT ran a headline that was even remotely supportive of the President. However the leftist mob immediately lambasted the paper, and within a matter of hours a new headline appeared for the afternoon edition which read Assailing Hate but Not Guns.”
