On Monday, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity publicly demanded The New York Times not only issue a correction, but apologize for a false and heinous April 18 column implicating him in the death of 74-year-old Brooklyn resident Joe Joyce from the coronavirus. Tuesday morning, The Times issued a statement in which they declined to do so and instead boasted Ginia Bellafante’s column was “accurate.”

Bellafante chronicled Joyce as a Fox News viewer and Trump supporter (and father of a friend) who went on a cruise that left March 1, and returned March 14 before his April 9 death. As for Hannity, she placed Joyce’s tale alongside Hannity saying on March 8 that the media were stirring up unnecessary fear about the virus to hurt Trump as reason for why he went on the cruise.
