It goes without saying, but Mainstream Media outlets – especially the NYT – has been and always will be a direct enemy of the American people.
The rag of a newspaper has a checkered past stretching back to the 1930s.
From staunchly defending Josef Stalin and the Soviet Union to now demonizing Border Patrol agents, the New York Times should be regarded with nothing but disdain.
They were forced to issue a correction this week after claiming that border patrol agents were whipping Haitian migrants with horse reins.
The original article, which was published Friday, covered President Joe Biden’s comments that border patrol officers accused of mistreating Haitian migrants would “pay” for their actions.
“The images of agents on horseback chasing, and in some cases using the reins of their horses to strike at running migrants, came as Mr. Biden’s administration moved to forcefully round up and deport more than 2,000 of the 15,000 migrants who gathered in a makeshift camp in Del Rio, Texas,” the article read.

An updated version changed the sentence to say “images of border patrol agents on horseback waving their reins while pushing migrants back into the Rio Grande have prompted a torrent of criticism from Democrats and civil rights groups.”
In the correction, the NYT admitted that the original article “overstated” what was going on at the border.
Overstated?! The damage has been done! The lie continues to be pushed by the White House even though the “whipping” claims have been completely debunked.
“An earlier version of this article overstated what is known about the behavior of some Border Patrol agents on horseback,” the correction read. “While the agents waved their reins while pushing migrants back into the Rio Grande, The Times has not seen conclusive evidence that migrants were struck with the reins.”
Images circulating across social media sparked accusations that border patrol agents were using horse reins to whip Haitian migrants. High-ranking officials, including the president, repeated the allegations and promised consequences for the agents, who were reassigned to administrative duties while an investigation took place.
However, former border agents and even Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas (before bending a knee to the Left) wholly debunked all whipping claims. Alternate video angles prove Border Patrol agents never whipped anyone, nor intended to. The “whips” in question are merely horse reins often used to keep migrants from coming close to the animal as to now injure themselves.
Sorting through my footage from the border. I was in the river during the viral incident between a Haitian migrant and mounted CBP agent. It's shaky – but here's what I captured. pic.twitter.com/fnvxSU83tO

Meanwhile, White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki continues to push the false claims despite contradicting evidence.
.@PressSec says that the distinction between whipping immigrants and using horse reins does not change the circumstances regarding the investigation and disciplining of border patrol agents.
