Readers of The New York Times are demanding that the newspaper be held accountable for publishing a fake about Russia and the killing of US soldiers in Afghanistan. “The New York Times must answer for their words!” – people are indignant in the comments.
The New York Times published on June 28 material that alleged that Russia was giving rewards for the killing of US soldiers in Afghanistan. At the same time, the author of the article referred to the words of a certain anonymous source.
Even the Pentagon made a refutation of the fake. The US military said that there was no evidence in the NYT material. And in the comments to the article, readers demand that the publication be held accountable for the dissemination of outright lies.
“NYT must answer for their words!” – Silent Observer writes.
“No evidence. It’s time for these magazines to quit in disgrace,” adds Jackholiday.
“Let the New York Times name their unnamed sources by name, it will be very interesting,” Ganthore suggests.
U.S. President Donald Trump could not resist the angry comment on Twitter. He called the material another hoax about Russia in order to discredit the Republicans. At the same time, Trump used a lot of exclamation marks in the message, hinting at a high degree of indignation.
