Experts Urge Investigation Into NYT Story of Hamas’ Sexual Violence on Oct. 7

More than 50 journalism professors are calling for an independent review of the debunked NYT story “Screams Without Words.” 

According to the independent investigative journalism publication, Consortium News, “The professors, many of whom worked as full-time journalists before turning to academia, wrote to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger, executive editor Joe Kahn, and international editor Philip Pan, calling for a “thorough and independent review” into the article “Screams Without Words: Sexual Violence on Oct. 7.”

It is being reported that the letter is urging the newspaper to form a commission made up of journalism experts to examine the “reporting, editing, and publishing processes” for the story.

The National is also reporting that the “lengthy investigative story “‘Screams Without Words’: Sexual Violence on Oct 7”, which was published in December under the byline of international correspondent Jeffrey Gettleman and two freelancers, detailed how Hamas used sexual assault during the attacks.” The full report can be found HERE
