Default New York Times says crime occurred in ‘downtown Arkansas’ — promptly gets mercilessly

The next annual PW picnic will be held in downtown California.

Nice journalism, NYT.

New York Times says crime occurred in ‘downtown Arkansas’ ? promptly gets mercilessly mocked – TheBlaze

Quote:
The New York Times was widely mocked on Saturday after they posted a tweet claiming a mass shooting occurred in “downtown Arkansas” — which, of course, doesn’t exist.

“Dozens of people were wounded by gunfire at a nightclub early Saturday morning in downtown Arkansas,” the Times wrote on Twitter.

Hairy, If we want to read the blaze we will subscribe. We don't want to. Now get over it. You never mentioned this story until you found a way to spin it. Same with the blaze. It's why I don't subscribe to you or them.

This is what happens when copy editors are laid off. You save money but end up looking like a moron.

Some of the tweeted responses are hilarious! Here are my favorites:

Quote:
"Downtown Arkansas", . . . near the corner of Oklahoma and Texas!
