Boston Globe Publishes Bogus Pictures
WorldNetDaily – Boston Globe publishes bogus GI rape pictures
Boston residents got more than they bargained for this morning when their copy of the Globe came complete with graphic photographic images depicting U.S. troops gang-raping Iraqi women.
Problem is the photos are fake. They were taken from pornographic websites and disseminated by anti-American propagandists, as first reported by WND a week ago.
WND contacted the Globe to question staff about the photos.
Asked whether the photos were the same as the porn photos WND already investigated, reporter Donovan Slack said, “I have no idea. I’m surprised the editor even decided we should write about it.”
She added: “Oh my God, I’m scared to answer the phone today.”
“It’s insane,” said Slack. “Can you imagine getting this with your cup of coffee in the morning? Somehow it got through all our checks. Our publisher’s not having a very good day today.”
Perhaps if the Globe refrained from publishing pornographic pictures to begin with–it’s a family newspaper, no?–it would help. But certainly a minimal amount of actual reporting and editorial oversight would be useful as well.
