Sidner made statements on the X social media platform regarding the broadcast in which she defended the allegations in question.
Pointing out that the Israeli Prime Minister's Office made the allegations while they were on the air, Sidner said, "Today, the Israeli government cannot confirm the allegations of beheading babies. I should have been more careful about my words, I apologize."
Sidner stated that the Israeli Prime Minister's Office and US President Joe Biden expressed these allegations and thought they had evidence, "Then they gave up on it (the allegations)."
Upon this post, one user wrote to Sidner, "People don't have to be so nasty, Sara. Unfortunately, the internet should not be a place where wrong judgments are made and shared with others."
Sidner told the user, "I am claiming that we are being misled. I am reporting what heads of government say. That's what news organizations do. This does not mean that what the leaders say is true. In the same article, I also said that Hamas denied these allegations."
