The New York Times, after the Supreme Court agreed with ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she said Joe Biden didn’t have the authority to cancel hundreds of billions of dollars in student-loan debt, offered students an easy out: death.

The content quickly was edited.

But Fox News caught the manipulations after the Times column pointed out that “death” was one way for people to cancel those student loans.

The Fox report explained, “Among six methods Ron Lieber included to get rid of student loan debt, such as signing up for student loan forgiveness and filing for bankruptcy, he included that debt ‘dies with the person or people who take it on,'” the report said.

“This option was given for students worried that the debt their loved ones took out for their schooling would pass on to them if those loved ones died. Lieber assured them it wouldn’t,” Fox explained.

The report noted the Times comments were posted shortly after the high court vetoed Biden’s scheme to cancel debts for student borrowers, either $10,000 or $20,000 depending on circumstances.

The benefit was to have gone to students making less than $125,000 a year.

The program had opposition from its start, as critics pointed out it lacked any equity for those who already had paid off their loans. And it was determined it would benefit most those who took the largest loans, law students and the like.

Further, there was Pelosi’s verdict that Biden absolutely was not allowed to do what only Congress had permission to do.

Fox reported that Lieber’s piece sympathized with the “enormous disappointment” for those who found out they were not getting loans canceled.

It then offered alternatives.

He cited various options, such as “Income-Driven Repayment,” “Public Service Loan Forgiveness,” and “Bankruptcy Discharge.”

He also added “Death.”

Reported Fox, “At least, that’s what his piece said before public outcry on Twitter. MSNBC columnist Katelyn Burns highlighted the article’s headline, ‘Ways You Can Still Cancel Your Federal Student Loan Debt’ and the ‘Death’ subsection, tweeting, ‘NYT what the f*** are you doing bro.'”

The Times shortly after changed the reference.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It’s hard to believe it’s really happening, but it is. Male athletes pretend to be females, dominate their sports, and are thereby rapidly destroying women’s competitive sports worldwide. Convicted male criminals suddenly claim to be transgender so they can be confined in a women’s prison and sexually abuse the female inmates there. Men claiming to be female likewise invade women’s locker rooms, bathrooms, schools, dormitories, sororities, shelters, spas and social organizations – and in the process steal women’s scholarships, advancement, honors and myriad other opportunities.

Meanwhile, transgender groomers and recruiters in schools and on social media platforms like TikTok are continually feeding and expanding the current “mass hysteria” craze that has already led countless teen girls to take testosterone and undergo double mastectomies in a pathetic effort to become boys. No wonder the CDC reports 3 in 5 teen girls say they feel “persistently sad or hopeless” and almost 1 in 3 say they have seriously considered committing suicide.

All of this on top of the radical left’s renewed obsession with killing women’s unborn babies via abortion.

The “woke” left’s maniacal attack on women and girls, virtually unreported by the rest of the media, is the entire focus of the sensational June issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE LEFT’S TOTAL WAR ON WOMEN.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
