Shortly after the blasts occurred, the tabloid [New York Post] falsely claimed that 12 people had been killed and a Saudi national was in custody; and then, to add insult to injury, they ran a front page photo which libelously depicted a high school track star as a federally-sought suspect.And by the way, the Czech Republic and Chechnya are not the same place...
The Post then continued to stand by their reporting long after it had been proven wrong.
Meanwhile, on CNN, Wolf Blitzer and the "best political team on television" once again found themselves unable to keep up with a breaking news story that doesn't involve a poop ship—and were subsequently commended by their boss for it.
