It’s unbelievable that this podcast is still available knowing it is fake/Hoax. The Times has accepted it failed again in reporting and posting this podcast but again “fear sells”.

Times got hoaxed on their award winning podcast 😂

A very clear and non-biased report, exceptionally investigated and produced. The one character that is being investigated by Canada had also fooled US CIA operatives and the Times announce this in every episode. It did not spoil the entire story.

The reporters who went to the frontlines to cover this story is so incredibly brave. Her details of everything made me feel as if I was there. A must listen!

The New York Times retracted the core of this podcast after an internal review found it had failed to heed red flags indicating that the story’s source wasn’t trustworthy.
Clay Dallas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/22
This is nearly all manufactured by the lead character. It’s a shame that the NYTimes didn’t have the infrastructure to verify the claims of the story. Better luck next time. Great piece of fiction, though. Not sure the Pulitzer committee is aware of this.

I was quickly pulled into the story and immersed into the scenes she described. She brought a human aspect to it.
WendyRose78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/22
so obviously they state its a fabrication but honestly i could care less, if anything it got even more interesting when they started the investigation lol. you dont really hear this kinda process anywhere i can think of and weirdly enough i found that cool to hear

Don’t take this seriously folks. Do your own research outside the MSM!

If you google “nyt caliphate podcast scandal” or read the one-star reviews since September 2020, you will learn why this series became a major embarrassment for NYT. A 13th episode has been added in response to the scandal, but leads one to ask why the series has not been taken down.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
U8Mate via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/25/21
Absolutely amazing podcast. I have listened to it 3 times because I love it so much. Truly so well done and contains such captivating content.
Celine Thibeault via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/23/21
Despite the issues with the credibility of one source, and the ensuing statement from the NYT, this is still my absolute favourite podcast. I’m now on my second listen and the structure, narrative flow and production quality of this series is just amazing. I feel Callimachi has become the...Read full review »

This is based on a false story from an unreliable person and shameful oversight by NYT’s. No one really ensured the veracity of the claims the interviewed source made. Very disappointing…..
cool rd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/21
I was so disappointed to learn the central figure in this story is likely an unreliable source. It soils the entire podcast, even parts independent from his narrative. They should remove this, and redo it right, because this is a topic worth learning about. Leaving it as is could spread...Read full review »

The news is thrilling when you just make [email protected]! up. The Times does it again!
Mr Green Eggs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/21
Talk about the American hypocrisy and mass media manipulation of people’s minds.
Moncef Abbad via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/26/21
That they never issued a formal retraction of this false story
Turtlemountain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/21
Really fake Debunked Lies Deception
MJJour00 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/21
Totally factual. Not at all made up or based up entirely on bogus sources.
Dgfjjdfjjinhgdfgv via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/16/21
And still promoted heavily? Is someone hoping that the controversy will go away if you ignore it?

Tell a true story and report true facts.
rookieOY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/21
Hey guys, at least they warned us about all those WMD’s in Iraq? We’re lucky to have the responsible journalists at NYT to guide us through the post-truth era.
bjohns383 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/21
Should be in the Fiction section.
JeSuisUnMouton via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/27/21
I don’t understand why this is still available. Please take it down.
cvm2478 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
Amazed to see that this work of fiction is still active. Do not waste your time with this. Google before listening
gsk77 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/18/21
Yes, once again a propogation of deceit and lies coming from the New York Times. This is not surprising in the least and why they have such little credibility from so many. Good riddance.
Hawkeye252 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/21
The desire to get a hot take superseded the safety of your subjects. Attitudes towards immigrants in Canada have shifted as a direct result this podcast; anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment has grown and politicians in Canada have used this (false) podcast to support their claims that...Read full review »

The whole story turned out to be based on lies. This podcast is mostly fiction.. like much of the NYT’s fake journalism.
twilson50 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
Canadaland has demonstrated this is based on an absurd degree of lying, shameful that it remains up
Ian Szabo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/21
This podcast has been fully exposed as dangerous lies and terrible reporting. Why is it still posted???
appleinwinter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/21
Overall, I loved this podcast. I learned of it AFTER the hoax was uncovered. In a lot of ways, I found the fact that the main interviewee lied speaks to an interesting aspect of his psychopathology. The only thing that I absolutely cringed about was when the interviewer had the victim speak...Read full review »

Wow
Commendable that NYT put this out (with little fanfare). But is a good document on how traditional forms of media are letting their standard slip in a desperate attempt to get bums on seats. Need disclaimers slapped all over this it it is to remain as downloadable content. Poor form!
Thurchill via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/27/21
“Caliphate made its debut in spring of 2018. It explored ISIS and the lure and threat of terrorism, driven by host Rukmini Callimachi, a much-celebrated Times reporter. It focused greatly on a young-Canadian-Pakistani, Shehroze Chaudhry, who claimed to have been an executioner for ISIS in Syria....Read full review »

Why is this podcast still being promoted on iTunes? This entire series was fabricated. It is not journalism. The hosts and producers should lose their jobs.
*BayouBabe* via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
Filled with amazing info, that was sourced well. It’s not full of false info, so don’t you dare question it hahaha
nylen1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/21
I’m going to give this 3 stars because it’s still a good story. Not only that but I want to be forgiving because, although I do believe most mainstream media is trash and is playing up its bias to an insane degree; I don’t believe this is THAT. Like you said, it’s hard to ever verify exactly what...Read full review »
wushu judge via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/21
This podcast is 100% fabricated. Michael Barbaro of The Daily led the charge in covering it all up. He convinced veteran reporters to abandon journalistic integrity. The NYT is complicit, which is not uncommon in false reporting.
lowdown via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/21
I have watched over the past few years how the journalistic integrity of the NYT has gone strait into the sewers of NYC. Recently, you put out a scathing hit piece about frontline COVID docs using IVERMECTIN like the rest of the world is doing, yet you publish a complete podcast about someone who...Read full review »
MommaT112233 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/21
The ISIS fighter never went to Syria! Plus the Daily host MB is playing hard ball with other journalist. This is tragic and unfortunately leads to the notion that the NYTs is indeed #fakenews.
Augustus Jackson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/21
I was so engrossed in this story and completely trusted NYT’s journalistic integrity. Unfortunately, this podcast is built around lies and has been widely discredited. WHY is this podcast available on Apple Podcasts still? NYT should step up and remove it, to prevent more people from falling...Read full review »
sideshowmel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/21
This entire series is based on a fabrication. As usual, the New York Times didn’t check their facts (just like they failed to do with the 1619 project). Sadly, you can no longer read something in the New York Times and assume it is based upon facts/research. NYT was one of the best news sources,...Read full review »

Confirmed liar in this podcast. In the era of fake news, why would NYT continue to damage their brand?
Wyattstorch_1991 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
Another break down of ethics at the NYT.
Velvet Jones81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
You lied to us. Great production value, horrible reporting!
Andrew Farinha via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/15/21
I really enjoyed the story telling ability of the journalist problem is it was all false. The NYT really pushed this knowing it was false definition of fake news. The recent revisiting episode is painful to listen to. Comes off as insincere and almost like they are saying “we are so great and...Read full review »
