Globe prints fake news
There’s fake news and then there’s FAKE NEWS!
Today’s early edition Boston Globe made a historic blunder with its Super Bowl coverage, running the headline: A BITTER END.
Above it is “Super Bowl LI.” LI meaning “51” in Roman numerals, but now it has another meaning, wouldn’t you say? You can’t have a LIE without LI.
These fake-news collectors’ items are on sale all over Florida. If you’re reading this in at least some parts of the Sunshine State, you can probably still buy one at your local Publix supermarket. (Not in Palm Beach – my neighbor just bought all five copies for me.)
Given its squalid past as a purveyor of fake news, the Globe just began a new PR campaign about how “The truth matters.”
This morning the Globe’s Truth Matters campaign came to … A BITTER END.
