Thank you NYT for reporting on this and for remaining neutral. Since I am not neutral I can say that these people should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. they have children and it sickens me to know what kind of example they are setting. Apparently they are fine with sitting in their basement as untrained and unqualified "journalists" profiting off of fake news. Talk about integrity.
