Accuracy in Media

The New York Times is still working hard to defeat Donald Trump, as evidenced by an article that appeared on October 25 featuring a 7-year-old Muslim girl’s “scary” dream about the GOP nominee.

The article begins with 7-year-old Maaria Elcharfa calling for her father when she walked into the kitchen the morning after the second presidential debate:

 “‘Baba, I had a scary dream,’ she said, hugging him tight. ‘About Donald Trump.’

It was the morning after the second presidential debate, which the Elcharfa family’s two youngest daughters watched in the basement of their Staten Island home with their parents. In the middle of the night, Maaria went to her parents’ room twice, unable to sleep, and walked to the living room and checked her family’s security camera.

That morning, Mr. Elcharfa, 52, asked his daughter what she saw in the nightmare.

‘He was so mean to us,’ she said. ‘He had a scary face, like a zombie or something.’ In the dream, Maaria later said, Mr. Trump came to the home of every Muslim family in the country and put each one in jail.

‘Don’t worry,’ he told his daughter, comforting her. ‘He’s just talk.'”

The article then chronicled the Elcharfa’s struggle with anti-Muslim sentiment as they try to raise their family, giving readers the impression that this may be because the family lives in a Trump stronghold in New York City, thus adding to the anti-Trump bias.

It may not make much of a difference in the election, however, since a majority of the Times’ readers are likely Clinton supporters. But it is yet another shameful example of the liberal media using children to further their agenda at the expense of the facts.
