for spreading false lies that a Saudi national (aka “MUSLIM”) was taken into custody, when the Boston Police Dept already shot that down and said it wasn’t true. We still have no idea who was behind the bombings, and there is no evidence pointing to anyone right now. But anyway, because the NY Post decide to make up fake information, everyone is already blaming us and stoking the rage of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred. This shit reminds me of the Norway terrorist attacks, when the New York Times had a front-page headline blaming MUSLIMS (even though there was no evidence that Muslims did it).
And there were thousands, and thousands of hateful comments on the NYT’s website written against Muslims. In the meanwhile, the Daily Mail (UK) quickly got the right information and updated their front page website with information about the Norwegian white male terrorist. and still, the NYT stayed quiet for the whole evening and allowing false (and even dangerous, life-threatening) information spreading like wildfire on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social networking websites.
and it turned out to be a white Christian Norwegian man who killed over 70 people in Norway. Oops!
Journalists & News Websites / Newspapers have a responsibility to report CORRECT information instead of speculating and spreading false info. to people. goddess knows how fucking stupid and ignorant the majority of people are— bunch of fuckin sheeps. BAA! BAA! they cannot think for themselves, so yes, let me repeat, journalists do have a major responsibility to carefully report information.
