A Hasidic Jewish landlord was murdered, and this is how The New York Post covered it. Now Jewish groups want a boycott, for obvious reasons. We’re not linking to the Post on this one, so read about it on Business Insider.

That Post cover is just the worst. It makes the driver sound like a monster, when the truth is probably somewhere in-between. Here’s a DNAInfo article that lays it all out:

As the train entered the curve, sources said, Rockefeller was jolted from his sleep and hit the brake, but not in time. The cars derailed, and several careened onto their sides before grinding to a halt on the edge of the Harlem River. Four people were killed, three of whom were thrown out of the cars, and more than 60 others were injured.

Rockefeller, 46, has been an engineer for roughly 11 years and a Metro-North employee for 20 years, and has an unblemished record.

Sources said he took a drug and alcohol test, and they do not believe either was a factor in the crash.

They declined to provide details of Rockefeller’s statements, which were given within minutes of the disaster, when paramedics and investigators arrived at the scene to offer assistance and try to learn what happened.

Prosecutors subpoenaed Rockefeller’s cellphone, but sources said they do not believe he was using it at the time of the tragedy.

Instead, sources said he virtually admitted that he fell asleep as the train roared through a straight, 70 mph zone, heading toward one of the sharpest curves on the 75-mile trip that started at 5:54 a.m. in Poughkeepsie, bound for New York City.

Obviously, things happen. People are known to fall asleep behind the wheel. He wasn’t drunk or using illegal drugs, and he’s just as shaken up as everyone else. The guy is cooperating with authorities, and is in shock over the whole thing. Let’s not demonize him, New York Post.

We don’t share stats, so your follower counts, your performance isn’t published out to the world. You can make little bets or try something small and experimental and not feel any sense of shame if you have only 2,000 followers, which I always think is really gross.
According to a New York Post Page Six item, David Karp just called Twitter’s method of showing followers to the public “really gross.” So Page Six cares about what Karp has to say all of a sudden. Fun.

Remember that New York Post cover pointing the finger at two random people in the Boston case? They're suing. Obviously. 

Surprising this lawsuit didn’t happen sooner.

Rupert Murdoch Defends NY Post‘s Boston Bombing Coverage On Twitter

Rupert Murdoch, getting roasted on Twitter for defending his New York Post’s running of a picture of two young men at the Boston marathon under the headline “BAG MEN.” In a classic case of journalistic gun-jumping, the men were not involved in the plot — one was a 17-year-old track runner from Revere High School who was forced to voluntarily approach authorities to clear his name. The comment of Murdoch’s that’s spurred the most derision, it seems, is that the Post withdrew the pictures when the FBI went another direction, a claim hard to decipher as pertains to one of the nation’s highest circulation print newspapers.

Today’s Front Pages From the Americas

New York Post (bottom center) still keeping it classy.

Nothing like a ton of great newspaper pages to put The New York Post’s front in perspective.

SAMESIES! Exact pic shows up on front pages of FOUR major newspapers today. More details here.

Well, not the exact pic. Apparently storm coverage on its own is just too blasé for the folks at the New York Post these days. Also, setting aside whether this storm should even have a name (we cry foul), the shark isn’t Nemo. Nemo biting – likely not a problem.

A lot happening in this tweet: First off, the New York Post decided Peter King taking a photo of Jay-Z and Beyonce was more important than the president getting inaugurated. Secondly, Peter King is taking a camera phone pic of Jay-Z and Beyonce. Third up, Peter King doesn’t know who Jay-Z is.

Earlier today, the New York Post put up a story discussing Ryan Lanza’s Facebook page and statements that he allegedly made to the newspaper, the first made since his brother committed the Newtown shooting (something he was initially falsely accused of). Funny story about that: They got duped and ran with a story based on a fake page with the username “Official.RyanLanza01”, because clearly the New York Post can’t figure out that a Facebook page was created this week. (Apparently the statements were made through Facebook chat, on top of that.) Good work dragging this kid’s name through the mud all over again.
