Let’s talk about the @NYTimes sinking to yet a new low in its pro-#Iran regime propaganda effort, this time hiding behind a “To the Editor” letter.

2)
First, we learn of the @NYTimes’ main concern:
3)
This blows the cover of this “LETTER” and makes it clear that far more important issues are at stake here.
4)
The @NYTimes doesn’t hide it’s hatred of President Trump’s firm #Iran policy:
5)
Here’s a debunking of a @NYTimes piece completely neglecting #Iran’s destructive role in the region & seeking a return to U.S. talks & appeasement with Tehran.
6)
To understand why the @NYTimes rushes to support #Iran’s regime, here’s a thread explaining their relationship.
7)
Now that the @NYTimes mentions “hostility,” how about discussing the hostility of #Iran’s regime towards the U.S.?
Remember the 444-day U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in Tehran
8)
How about the 1983 Beirut bombings that left 241 American service members, 58 French military personnel and six civilians killed, alongside hundreds of others injured.

9)
Or how about the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing that killed 19 U.S. military personnel?

10)
Or #Iran’s role in the 9/11 attacks that left nearly 3,000 American civilians killed:
11)
Or #Iran sending thousands of IEDs to Iraq, killing and critically wounding thousands of American soldiers?

12)
Here is just one compilation of IEDs.
13)
Then we have the @NYTimes further defending #Iran’s regime:
14)
To counter this argument, here’s a short breakdown of #Iran’s nuclear deal violations, aka the JCPOA.

15)
Then we have the @NYTimes describing #Iran’s regime as a “Jeffersonian democracy.”
16)
That’s quite interesting because Iran has the highest execution rate per capita.
Here’s a look at the record of Iranian President @HassanRouhani, whom @NYTimes considers a “moderate.”
17)
The @NYTimes then makes another bogus claim:
18)
Here’s a debunking of a Reuters piece claiming U.S. sanctions on #Iran are hurting “ordinary Iranians.”
19)
Here we have the @NYTimes finding a simple solution (and very convenient for #Iran’s mullahs) to just “move on” & citing Obama’s policy.
20)
Now let’s see how Obama’s policies worked out...
21)
Let’s do take a look at how #Iran’s regime has been ”very useful in helping resolve some of the intractable problems in the region.”
Iran’s role in Syria.

23)
#Iran’s meddling in #Iraq.
(Remember how Obama prematurely pulled all U.S. troops out of the country, opening its doors to Iran?)
nytimes.com/2018/03/15/wor…
24)
#Iran supporting the Lebanese Hezbollah:

26)
To make a long story short, for me, the @NYTimes is nothing but a biased, #FakeNews outlet with deep interests in #Iran’s mullahs remaining in power.
27)
Conclusion: Yours to make.

Thanks for reading!

In your opinion, can the @NYTimes be trusted as a source of non-biased reports?
