This makes a substantial addition to your list. I don't claim that the articles I found make a complete list; there may be more out there. But it seems obvious that all your statistical figures need revision, and that your conclusions in regard to what the NYT does not report on is risky.
I do not see how this paper can be fixed in a short period of time.

(1) Reference list is amateurish. I want specific URLs for every Wikipedia article you use
(2) Titles, and persons or organizations responsible, for the websites where you only give URLs
(3) URLs for every individual newspaper article you use
(4) there were several double listings of articles in your list which I have identified; in this case I changed the comment line to : Same as ...
(5) It shows the New York Times strived to imbue readers with that there is nothing wrong in its explorations of the region, colonization and the sale of the territories. in regard to the sale of territory, too strong; the NYT in the one article on the issue distances itself from its source
(6) On the one hand, Americans got purely interested in the mystique state itself, yet on the other hand, like the doctrine of ˇ°Manifest Destinyˇ±, they considered Palestine as a place to be owned and ruled by themselves. for which time period does Christison make this observation ?
