The New York Occasions ignored 18 deaths, numerous accidents and practically $2 billion in property harm nationwide in an article slamming Republican payments designed to cease what the liberal newspaper thought of largely “peaceable” protests.
The Occasions revealed a report initially headlined, “How the G.O.P. Is Creating Harsher Penalties for Protesters,” that was ultimately titled “G.O.P. Payments Goal Protesters (and Absolve Motorists Who Hit Them),” in the web model. It detailed how “Republican-led states are introducing punitive new measures governing protests” within the wake of former policeman Derek Chauvin’s conviction for the homicide of George Floyd.
