Yet Another Massive Right Wing Blog Fail: NY Post’s Latest Fake Story Fools Them AGAIN

Idiots blinded by bigotry

The New York Post has been absolutely horrible in its slanted opportunistic coverage of the Boston bombings, deliberately printing false stories to incite the right wing base, and today they did it again: New York Post Misidentifies Local High School Track Runner as Boston Bombing Suspect.

The New York Post has again distinguished itself in its coverage of the Boston Marathon investigation, this time misidentifying the two suspects authorities kinda-sorta maybe have in mind.

Over a photo from the marathon, the Post screams “BAG MEN: Feds seek these two pictured at Boston Marathon.” In the photo, two men, one with a white cap and a backpack, are shown conversing while dark-skinned. …

Alas, the two are extremely unlikely to be the suspects the feds are after. Reddit found one of the men pictured on Facebook, and he turned out to be a student at Revere High School, fond of posting pictures of himself preparing for track meets, or about to run a marathon.

It’s hard to express how massive a fail this is — but it’s surpassed by the even more massive fail of the right wing blogs, who universally jumped all over the Post’s latest fake story even though they were just burned by the last fake story.

Check out the fail. These people are morons, ruled by hatred for Muslims, falling for the same lies over and over.
