We’re certain the New York Times has published plenty of Chinese propaganda since last October, but that’s when we and many others on Twitter made note of this piece putting those pesky Hong Kong protesters in their place:
After months of chaos in Hong Kong, "something had to be done, and the Chinese government did it," writes Regina Ip https://t.co/8gT7DaAT7R

Now, with the New York Times’ preferred candidate inaugurated as president and ready to revive his old boss’s nuclear deal with Iran, the Times is handing over some real estate on its op-ed page to Iran’s ambassador to the U.N., who assures us that Iran is ready to return to the nuclear deal if all of the sanctions imposed by President Trump are withdrawn.
Iran is ready to return to the obligations of the 2015 nuclear deal and reverse the measures it has taken since, if all of the sanctions Donald Trump imposed are withdrawn, writes Majid Takht-Ravanchi, Iran’s ambassador to the U.N. https://t.co/APhuCZLNED

“Did Iran write this?”
“Yes, yes they did.”

Taking a break from selling out to China to selling out to Iran. Is there any blood money the NYT wont take?

Don't know what's funnier; the NYT published this or you, as a journalist, actually believe the Iranians. Sad either way

Iran will totally do this, everyone!

Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. They’re rapidly executing young people who protest against government abuses. No sanctions should be lifted until their behavior changes.

NYT, proud regurgitators of terrorist propaganda.

Give me a break!
Who believes this nonsense?!
Obama put them on a path to the bomb, Trump stopped it… now Biden wants to put them back on the path?
And TRUMP is the bad guy??

We don't negotiate with terrorists!
Here's a proposal – If Iran so much as enriches *one ounce* of Uranium, we crush them like a grape.
— Matt ?? (@Xenos_on_ice) January 28, 2021
So the Biden administration is once again going to kneel and bow to Iranian blackmail instead of keeping Trump's sanctions in place. You folks learned nothing from Obama.
— Dr. Doctor ? (@FlaRenegade) January 28, 2021
Iran is a terrorist state. Trump kept them under wraps and beat them time and time again, without a war and Biden is just going to coddle them, pay them off with taxpayer money and fund their nuclear and regional ambitions. He’s a joke.

So let me get this straight, @NYTimesPR:
You DO allow the spokesperson for the world's biggest anti-US terrorist regime to use your pages to spread propaganda…
But you WON'T allow conservatives inside your opinion hothouse, because your other contributors might be offended. pic.twitter.com/iMN741siDq

Yep. Remember when the op-ed page editor lost his job for publishing that piece by Sen. Tom Cotton encouraging President Trump to “send in the troops” to quell the rioting over the summer — and now there are tens of thousands of National Guard troops and a fence protecting the Capitol in case Ted Cruz sends someone to murder AOC? Dozens of employees called in sick to protest and staffers said en masse that the op-ed put black staffers’ lives in danger. But propaganda from China and Iran? Sure!
Anyone at NYT Opinion going to resign over letting a terrorist regime spout their propaganda in your paper, or is that outrage only reserved for @TomCottonAR?
— ??? ?????????? (@dgoldwas) January 27, 2021
You publish this but had an internal revolt over publishing a US Senator?
— Old Ideas (@alloldideas) January 28, 2021
Same NYT that imploded over Tom Cotton op-ed is proud to publish ChiCom propaganda that 'puts Hong Kong Freedom fighters in danger' https://t.co/dbOr9mBucr
