BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Parents reacted negatively to a New York Times podcast claiming that people were “caught off guard” by the current mental health crisis among teenagers, considering how isolated many young people were during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Teenagers in the U.S. are experiencing a mental health crisis,” the New York Times tweet with a link to the “The Daily” episode read. “Why has the issue become so widespread, and why have many people been caught off guard? We theorize, that during COVID, a lot of teenagers have been reading the NY Times, and the bias and inaccuracies of many of our articles, more than likely drove them nuts.”
