NY Times Rewrites the Story – Occupy Wall Street
Check this out! The story changed! Photo by SOA Watch and shared by FaceBook Friend Don Johnson. From the byline it appears “Al Baker” made the changes to the article, I guess Colin Moynihan’s version was too factual? Why stop there? Why not photoshop the picture too Al? You could add some palm trees and union pseudo thugs in there in a Fox Wisconsinish style…that is the fad.
Update: Al Baker the man who made the changes to the NY Time article depicted above responded via comment to this story. “Al Baker is the Police Bureau Chief for the New York Times and the son of a Police Lieutennant.” Quite simply he gives us a clue as to why he changed the story. The original made Police look bad so he changed it. We can understand why the change was made now..yet that still doesn’t make it right.
Still more… Ministry of Truth, a well-known contributor on the Daily Kos website posted this comment :
I was there, we were allowed on the bridge it was clearly open. People got trapped up there, pure and simple. F*** the NYtimes
