Accuracy is apparently not an issue in NYC. ‘A Team of Editors’.
This is of course about the infamous “list of (some of) the dead” from COVID-19 published by the New York Times. Their “staff devoted hours to the project.”
Scarcely five minutes after their list was published, people on Twitter began pointing out an obvious error: Jordan Haynes, 27, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was the sixth name on the Times list, but he did not die of COVID-19. He was a homicide victim, whose body was found in a car in a wooded area near Interstate 380. Exactly how the “team of editors” made such a colossal blunder, we don’t know, but they’ve deleted Haynes’ name from the list and promised to publish a correction tomorrow.
So either they just selected a random set of dead people from “flyover country” and trusted that no one would check their work, or they really are that stupid. Or both.
