NYT Updates Story Blaming Airplanes For Taking Down WTC

Update: After all the backlash, the Times decided it would probably be a good idea to accurately describe how the Twin Towers were taken out on 9/11. 

Here's how the updated paragraph reads now: 


Eighteen years have passed since terrorists commandeered airplanes to take aim at the World Trade Center and bring them down.

Original Story: 

In an article published on the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, The New York Times decided to blame airplanes for taking down the World Trade Center, completely ignoring that it was terrorists who hijacked those planes.

“Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down,” reads the second paragraph in the piece titled “Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11.”  In fact, terrorism isn’t even mentioned in the article, except for in the subheading.

To make matters worse, this is the section the NYT tweeted to promote the article, prompting widespread backlash. The death count was also wildly off. They have since deleted the tweet, but not before Twitchy captured it.

Some Twitter users pointed out it sounded an awful lot like Rep. Ilhan Omar's description of 9/11 as when "some people did something."
