Comedian Amy Schumer has emerged as the latest celebrity to slam establishment news outlets for parroting Hamas propaganda concerning the recent missile attack on a Gaza hospital — even going as far as to call for top editors to resign for spreading what she called “terrorist lies.”

Amy Schumer called out the news organizations by name —  the New York Times, CNN, BBC News, and others — for prematurely blaming Israel for the attack.

“Many Western outlets published a propaganda LIE, blaming Israel without fact checking. FACTS only reached the headlines an hour later. Fire the @bbcnews @nyt @skynews @cnn editors who put terrorist lies on their homepages,” she wrote in her Instagram Stories.

As Breitbart News reported, the New York Times stealth-edited its story about the hospital attack throughout the day on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Gray Lady first called it an “Israeli strike” then simply a “strike” and then a “blast.”

Amy Schumer isn’t the only celebrity to call out media malfeasance.

Oscar-winner Jessica Chastain also slammed  the New York Times and Washington Post, saying both newspapers were guilty of rushing to conclusion in their zeal to smear Israel.
