New York Times Finally Admits School Shutdowns Harmed Children

The New York Times has finally admitted that shutting down schools and forcing home-schooling during the pandemic caused widespread harm to children.

However, the NY Times failed to challenge the issue of closed schools at the time.

The left-wing newspaper instead pushed to platform fear-mongers and silenced, vilified, or just ignored dissenters.

Renowned doctors and scientists who dared to challenge the mainstream narrative were publicly smeared and demonized as “conspiracy theorists” by so-called “journalists.”

Yet, the NYT has now suddenly changed its tune and published an op-ed over the weekend titled: “The Startling Evidence of Learning Loss Is In.”

According to the Times article:

“The evidence is now in, and it is startling.

“The school closures that took 50 million children out of classrooms at the start of the pandemic may prove to be the most damaging disruption in the history of American education.

“It also set student progress in math and reading back by two decades and widened the achievement gap that separates poor and wealthy children.”

However, the evidence is anything but startling for anyone who has been paying even a modest amount of attention for the past 3 ½ years.

More than 3 years too late, the Times has now given permission to acknowledge what was obvious from the beginning.

But if you dared to say so in 2020, 2021, or even 2022, you were smeared with all sorts of ad hominem attacks.

Anyone who challenged the corporate media’s anti-science narratives was automatically labeled a racist, conspiracy theorist, eugenicist, ableist, science-denying alt-right Trumper, flat earther, or a Nazi.

While the NYT may have finally deemed this subject acceptable to talk about, the damage has already been done to both American children and those dissenters who challenged the fear-mongering.

Much of the harm was, in fact, caused by the data-denying corporate media narrative that ignored actual science and facts.

Further, the NY Times fails to acknowledge its own complicity in these devastating results.

It was clear what would happen all along, but the New York Times failed to interrogate the issue and instead published “the science” as determined by Big Pharma press releases, teachers’ unions, and government leaders cowing in the face of public health bureaucrats.
