Columnist Suspended for Phony Reporting of Boston Marathon Bombing

The Pulitzer Prize–for fiction?

In 2014 the Boston Globe won a Pulitzer Prize for its reporting of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon.

Now one of that reporting team has been suspended without pay for three months… for “inconsistencies” between his reporting and the facts (http://www.breitbart.com/sports/2018/06/18/boston-globe-suspends-columnist-for-fabricating-marathon-bombing-stories/).

In other words, he made up some of it. Some of the details were invented. We aren’t told just what it was he is alleged to have invented: the investigation is ongoing. My guess is that he sort of embellished the story. Kinda, sorta, basically.

It took them four years to smell a rat.

Think they’ll have to give back the Pulitzer? Well, the New York Times still has the Pulitzer awarded to Walter Duranty for egregiously lying about Josef Stalin’s workers’ paradise in the Soviet Union of the 1930s. Stalin’s cheerleader. Some things never change. Our nooze media still loves Far Left dictators, mass graves and all.

Not that this guy at the Globe did anything on that scale: but fiction is fiction, and has no place in news reporting.

Unless it wins you a Pulitzer. Or furthers the progressive cause.
