Group Prints Fake Apology On Behalf of NY Post’s Boston Coverage (VIDEO)

RACHEL MADDOW SEGMENT:
Rachel Maddow exposed a funny “prank” (for lack of a better word) on the irresponsible “news” organization known as the New York Post.
The newspaper took major heat in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings for falsely reporting several details about the incident. These included who the original suspects were and how many people were killed in the blasts.
After the paper defiantly refused to offer a direct apology and retraction for its misinformation, a group called Animal New York took matters into their own hands. They decided to print a fake retraction [see link] for the Post’s actions and place it in copies of the paper they paid for. From there, the newspaper was handed out in different parts of Manhattan.
Mischievous, but clever!
Oh yeah … still no official word from the New York Post about its huge errors last week or the Animal New York letter.
