The New York Times has become a laughingstock as one of the biggest circulators of terrible reporting and woke talking points. They just gave us another reason to chuckle yesterday.
Shortly after the U.S. beat Iran 1-0 in the final match of the group stage to continue their World Cup dream, the Times posted an article on its front page with the news. While it might seem great that the USMNT was given front page space on what was once a respectable publication, the Times made a comical error when delivering the news.
Instead of using a cover image of goal-scorer Christian Pulisic or of manager Greg Berhalter celebrating, the Times used a picture of several England players in what was a laughable oversight.
On the one hand, USA is a soccer country - it's front page NYT news!— Nick Gourevitch (@nickgourevitch) November 29, 2022
On the other hand, USA is not a soccer country - that photo is of England! pic.twitter.com/g2eqGnO2EV
I get that the United States media might not be as concerned with soccer as other countries, but that’s no excuse to make a mistake this obvious. Even casual viewers of the World Cup could look at that photo and realize that the U.S. hasn’t - and won’t - worn a uniform that looks like that in their matches. You would think that a publication like the New York Times would be able to notice that too.
Then again, left wing-media seems to have a never-ending supply of stupidity.
