Epic! AnimalNewYork.com issues an apology letter for the New York Post for their reckless reporting LMAO
On Thursday, the Post published front-page photos of two men, telling millions of their readers that they were being searched for in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings. “BAG MEN: Feds seek these two pictured at Boston Marathon,” the Post’s front page headline declared. As it turned out, both were completely innocent and were cleared by federal investigators.
Since the Post refuses to issue an apology, the folks at the Animal have gone ahead and issued one for them. The site wrote up a fake “apology” from editor Col Allan, and slipped the letter into hundreds of copies of Friday’s Post. They then, handed out the copies to people on the streets of New York City.
“This week, the New York Post has acted recklessly and with flagrant disregard for the principles of good journalism,” Animal’s fake apology reads, adding their (so-called) reporting was ”at best ill-informed and speculative, and at worst intentionally misleading and harmful to the lives of those involved."
They filmed the whole thing too lol
Shortly before authorities arrested Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown Friday night, the FBI took into custody three others in connection to their investigation.
Two women and one man, both of whom appeared to be college-aged, were apprehended for questioning. The FBI has not released the names of those in custody.
Neighbors told the local media that Dzhokhar’s girlfriend may have lived in the apartment complex and some reported seeing him in the area following the bombings at the marathon.
The two men arrested last night in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings drive a car with the licence plate that reads: ‘Terrorista #1’
The students, named be neighbours by their first names Azmat and Diaz, drive a black BMW 330XI with the personalised plate and a sticker on the back which reads: ‘F*** you, you f****** f****’.
They are thought to be from Kazakhstan and had not been seen since the bombings until last night when their ground floor apartment was raided by a dozen FBI agents at gunpoint.
Two Russian speaking men in their early 20s later arrived at the apartment of the arrested trio and told reporters they were journalists from the Boston Globe.
They then entered the apartment through an unlocked patio door. When asked what they were doing they said: ‘We are friends of theirs. They are talking, they are talking’ and closed the door.
