NYTimes tries thier hand at "Fake but Truthful"

Look real close at this picture which was posted in the NY Times home page (since taken down)



Notice the caption calling this object part of a missile fired at a house (unwritten but implied from a Predator). Uh, I don't think so. This is an unexploded 155mm artillery shell WITH A FUSE STILL ATTACHED! Everyone in this picture should be dead right now, same with the photographer. YOU DON'T MESS WITH UXO! even BDU's (Bomb Disposal Units) don't play with UXO. This kid is one lucky bastard if he's still breathing.

(Hat Tip Michelle Malkin)

Update: NYT has a correction up now....

I heard about this on Edd Hendey's show this morning. Simply amazing...that the liberal media continues to try to demonize the Bush administration, only to get caught. Funny how they tried to sweep it under the rug, not realizing that the new media has already captured their stupidity. I thought that the MSM was supposed to be "professionals"; don't "professionals" know how to check their facts?

Sadly, fact-checking, along with professional editing, has gone the way of the dodo in MSM.

That's too bad as well, as I constantly remind the Chron people who flame me for grammatical errors:

Had I the resources to hire an editor for my blog, I would and the mistakes would be less as a result.

MSM HAS those resources, and yet they STILL get it wrong.

Which is worse?
