New York Times reporters Raja Abdulrahim and Iyad Abuheweila wrote this:

Israel haters never refer to the Israeli army by its official title of Israel Defense Forces. Instead, they consistently call it the "IOF," or "Israeli Occupation Forces."

And that is how these two reporters referred to the IDF as well.

The New York Times editors caught the slander and silently changed it to "Israeli forces" in a later version, but this shows that even they know that they hire reporters who hate Israel. Apparently, that us a feature, not a bug, but they are supposed to be a little less obvious.

The entire story is biased against Israel.

The IDF showed videos of the Kamal Adwan Hospital, showing dozens of people in civilian clothes with weapons surrendering from the hospital itself. 

It released a video showing how weapons were hidden in the NICU of the hospital.

But the reporters wrote, "The Israeli military’s claims could not be independently verified."

Yet when Gazans made their own absurd claims, the reporters accepted them without any caveats:
“This is a big crime here inside Kamal Adwan Hospital,” said a local journalist, Anas Al-Sharif posted a video on social media of the rubble at the scene. “Dozens of bodies, the bulldozer rolled over them and left,” he said in the video he posted. 

That is an absurd and completely slanderous claim. Yet the NYT reporters don't challenge it or add any additional notes about not being able to independently corroborate it. 

Even information that could easily be proven false was not checked:

Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, a spokesman for the Gaza health ministry, said in a statement that at one point during the siege, the hospital’s medical staff and patients were forced to evacuate the hospital’s remaining buildings and gather in the courtyards in the cold winter weather.
The high temperature in Gaza City on Saturday was 81F, the low about 51F.  It is not much different from the weather in Miami this week. The reporters are on the scene and know very well that Gaza is not cold.  This is hardly "cold winter weather" - but they know they are writing for New Yorkers who will see that phrase and picture wintry, freezing weather. 

This is not an oversight. This bias is deliberate, and the New York Times editors know very well that they are dealing with reporters who have no interest in the truth. They just soften the parts that make it too obvious that the New York Times has become a Hamas mouthpiece.
