On April 16, The New York Times (NYT) released an article, “Inside the Fringe Japanese Religion That Claims It Can Cure Covid-19” by Mr. Sam Kestenbaum on its online edition, which contains both objective tones and factual errors that disparages members of Happy Science and the organisation’s efforts to guide faith seekers during this difficult time. This article was released in NYT’s weekend printed edition with the title, “Battling Viral Demons, But for a fee”, again on April 20.
