Deadspin: How The New York Post Manufactured A Stupid Jets Controversy

    Deadspin catches Post columnist Mark Cannizzaro distorting quotes to fit his narrative. I suppose it's not all that surprising for such an esteemed publication. But I always wonder whether its buffonish henchman like Cannizzaro are too stupid to know what they're doing or too dishonest to care.

    The title of that should be "How reporter made up quotes."
    There's no excuse for that. I would love to see an explanation.

    Regardless of the publication, this is on Cannizzaro. There are plenty of solid journalists at the Post (Joel Sherman, Ken Davidoff, for example) who wouldn't pull crap like this in a zillion years.

    Why the fuck would a trip to Dave and Busters be "controversial!" anyway? Would a trip to Outback be more respectful of the Bills? Even if the made up quote were accurate, who gives a fuck?

    I think journaislm hell is being a tabloid beat reporter in NYC.

    Well, at least until they got an order from somebody up the food chain.

    Oh great. Another thread where people pretend they're too good for the New York Post.

    I'm at the point where I'm too good for The NY Times and their manufactured Presidency.
    I'm betting that amongst Times editorial staff their are a lot of stiff backs from all the
    water carrying they are doing.
  11. i guess it's easy to take shots at or make assumptions about people you don't know. but i know both of these men, and i can assure you they would work elsewhere (and be quickly hired) if faced with what you're suggesting.
