Corrections needing corrections

2010-07-29 19:21:32.243128+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

New York Post fouls up a correction (via Scott Rosenberg). Interestingly, along with the errors they make in the correctly, they state that the original bad information came from the NYPD. Why's the NYPD seeding the Post with bad info?

Having lived in and near NYC, I can assure you that there is a long tradition of the NYPD providing propaganda and lies to the local newspapers.

The NY Post in particular is a wingnut rag that allies itself with any authoritarian arm of government. It is not to be trusted. The paper itself is useful only for protecting floors from paint and for starting fires.

It's owned by Rupert Murdoch. Enough said?

The NYPost was that way even before Murdoch bought it.
