NY Post Fucks up
OK, let's see if I can pursuade right-wingers that the NY Post - whom they quoted extensively last week regarding an op-ed about fake outrage over 9-11 images in Bush's ads (the sickly sweet smell of burning irony singes my nostril hairs)
Check this. The NY Post Wednesday published a cover shot of a 19-year-old student jumping to her death.
Cool mo' shit huh? Huh? Link (note, not of shot, just a story)
Well, they refused to publish pictures of jumpers from the World Trade Center. But THAT's different.
No brainer, right? Here's the cover.
OK, but how about this little nugget - They ran the jumper because it shocked. They ran the jumper because they had no consideration - or apparently any inclination to look for consideration - of the facts surrounding the jump.
Wow. There's some "If it Bleeds, It Leads" ethos taken to the max. And taken to the toilet. Where the NY Post should be used appropriately.
