NY Times Tweets FAKE NEWS About Patriots’ WH Visit, What Happens Next Is APPALLING

The NY Times tweeted a comparison of two photos on Wednesday afternoon—one shows Super Bowl Champions, the Patriots, visiting the White House in 2015 and the other shows their more recent, 2017 visit.

The Times noted the significant difference between the size of the two crowds in the photos, implying there were significantly less players who chose to attend in 2017 than there were in 2015, when Obama was president.

The now-viral tweet was quickly debunked, and the paper was forced to issue a correction, removing the photo from their website.

But here’s the clincher: they refuse to delete the tweet.

Check it out (via Twitchy):

As an update to this story we told you about Wednesday night, the New York Times has removed the picture of the Patriots’ 2015 visit to the White House:

Correction: April 19, 2017

An earlier version of this article included photos comparing the size of the Patriots’ gathering at the White House in 2015 and the gathering on Wednesday. The photo from Wednesday only showed players and coaches; the 2015 photo showed players, coaches and support staff and has been removed.

But the viral tweet is still up and its numbers continue to grow, meaning social media users are still being fooled by the comparison and believe the fake news that the NY Times is selling here.

As of Thursday morning, the tweet had nearly 45,000 retweets and more than 66,000 likes.

But they’re just facts, or whatever.
