Did you hear about the 8-month-old Palestinian infant who died after being exposed to tear gas at the Israel-Gaza border?

Never mind that no decent parent would ever bring their child — an baby, no less — into a riot. That story had all the makings of perfect Hamas propaganda, which is why the Washington Post, among other outlets, was so quick to seize on it.

And when it turned out that the truth — that according to a Gazan doctor, little girl had a pre-existing medical condition — no longer fit the media’s preferred anti-Israel narrative, the Washington Post tried to cover their butts:

The current version of the Washington Post’s story also includes this:

The Health Ministry also reported that a baby died after inhaling tear gas at the main protest area in Gaza. An unidentified doctor told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the baby, Layla Ghaben, had a preexisting medical condition and that he did not think her death was caused by tear gas.

Which is not what it said before (emphasis ours):

More than 2,700 people were injured, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, including 1,359 from live ammunition. The dead included at least seven children under the age of 18, among them a 15-year-old girl, the ministry said. The baby was 8 months old and died after inhaling tear gas at the main protest area east of Gaza City, it added.”

Hell, even the headline was changed from this:

To this:

And no editor’s note or correction for any of it. Go figure.

Here’s the L.A. Times:

Because all that matters is the narrative.

They don’t seem to care. At all.

They certainly should. But will they? Don’t hold your breath.
