When multiple errors, exaggerations and blatant lies are disguised as news, it is the responsibility of the news agency to formally apologize and correct their mistakes. As of today, The New York Post, it's owner, Rupert Murdoch and editor-in-chief, Col Allan, refuse to accept any responsibility for their false and damaging reporting surrounding the Boston Marathon Bombing.
The New York Post sensationalized the Boston Marathon Bombing, claimed the death toll was 12, told us they had a Saudi man in custody and eventually ran a front page photo of two innocent boys they claimed the FBI wanted for questioning. Neither of them were identified by the FBI as suspects. One of those kids, a 17 year old high school student whose face was recognizable in the photo is devastated and afraid ( I have blurred his face from the graphic in this petition). This sort of irresponsible and damaging reporting is unacceptable and should not be tolerated in a modern and civilized society. The New York Post must apologize and stop "standing by" their false reporting. Because in the end, sensationalized news and headlines may sell papers but publishing pure lies only sells your soul and integrity.
