    The New York Times issued a correction Thursday after falsely reporting the number of children who have died from a COVID-related condition in a piece about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommending a third dose of the vaccine to kids.

    The piece by Times health and science reporter Apoorva Mandavilli
    initially declared that nearly 4,000 children ages 5-11 died, but in
    reality that number was diagnosed with a coronavirus-related syndrome.


    The Gray Lady eventually issued a correction noting the children were diagnosed, not deceased.


    Last year, the Times issued a massive correction after severely
    misreporting the number of COVID hospitalities among children in the
    United States by more than 800,000.

    Times initially reported "nearly 900,000 children have been
    hospitalized" with COVID since the pandemic began, when the factual
    data in eventually-corrected version was that "more than 63,000
    children were hospitalized with Covid-19 from August 2020 to October


    These are good examples of the liberal media deliberately exaggerating
    the numbers to make the virus appear worse than it was. Reporters, and
    proof readers don't make mistakes like that.

    The lies by the liberal media eventually led to the election of an
    idiot for president.
