New York Times Finds New Digs Living Under a Rock


The New York Times shared a tweet Tuesday stating that there has been no rise in gas cost, shortages, or lines since the Colonial Pipeline cyber attack. 

“Colonial Pipeline, a vital U.S. fuel artery that was shut down by a cyberattack, said it hoped to restore most operations by the end of the week,” the tweet said. “Since the shutdown, there have been no long lines or major price hikes for gas.”

Let’s take a look at headlines found on other mainstream media outlets. 

“Fuel shortages crop up in Southeast, gas prices climb after pipeline hack” – Washington Post

“Spot gas shortages could worsen if Colonial Pipeline doesn’t reopen by the weekend” – CNBC 

“Why Rising Gas Prices Have Hit Pa., NJ and Del.” – NBC Philadelphia

“Gas prices top $3: What you need to know about gas shortages, Colonial Pipeline cyberattack” – USA Today 

“Gas prices hit $3 a gallon for 1st time in nearly 7 years amid Colonial Pipeline saga” – ABC News 

In life, there is misinformation and then there is pure dishonesty. Does the New York Times live under a rock, or is dishonesty their best policy? 

In this case, the paper has point blank gone too far.
