The NY Times has deleted a number of articles. People noticed during the pandemic that hundreds of NY Times articles disappeared, even though the Times thinks they are a living historical record. The Times keeps a searchable database of articles going back to the 1850s.
What was in those articles? Every one was a propaganda piece made to look like a serious news story. The Chinese Communists paid for them and they paid handsomely. They bought the Times and many others.
