The Post Wasn't a Bad Paper... Until Now

NY Post cover Boston suspects Bag Men
Wrong Suspects
Surely the worst thing the Post did this week was what it did yesterday—placing photos of two men on the front page of the fucking newspaper and very strongly implying that they were the bombers. These two men were not the Tsarnaev brothers; one was a 17-year-old who had wanted to run the marathon. The Post's language was carefully worded, which might save it from any libel suits, but our ethical standards shouldn't end at the law. This was flat out shit journalism. The editors of the Post know better.
