Minnesota Newspaper Runs Ad For Pressure Cookers Next Bombing Story
It seems like there’s been a ton of false information about the Boston Marathon bombing, reported every single day by just about every single news outlet.
But this might be the most embarrassing media mistake so far.
Yesterday, the “Minneapolis Star Tribune” ran a Macy’s ad for pressure cookers right next to their Boston Marathon bombing coverage.
If you don’t know, a pressure cooker was used to make at least one of the two bombs at the marathon, just like the one in the ad from Macy’s.
And the ad ran in both the print version AND the online version of the paper.
