New York Daily News Gets Nearly EVERYTHING Wrong On Navy Yard Shooter Story

More classic DN journalism - just about everything wrong:

The cover of Tuesday's New York Daily News about Monday's Navy Yard shooting is now almost entirely wrong.

The cover features a large AR-15 gun with the headline "Same Gun, Different Slay," and a photo widely circulated on Monday of people tending to a man laid out on a Washington, D.C. corner.

In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, the FBI confirmed that an AR-15 was not used in the shooting. Meanwhile, the photo, since retracted by the AP, has now been determined to be of a medical emergency unrelated to the Navy Yard.

Many outlets, including CNN, NBC News and BuzzFeed initially reported that an AR-15 may have been used by the shooter and published the photo, which had been posted to Twitter by Tim Hogan, communications director for Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.).

Requests for comment to the New York Daily News were not returned as of posting time.

Of course they didn't respond to getting nearly everything in their cover story wrong.

Like their hero, Mayor Bloomberg, they never accept accountability for anything.

Not ever.
