Dewey Defeats Truman redux? Early edition of Boston Globe had Patriots losing Super Bowl
The Boston Globe regrets the error, no doubt.

The biggest local newspaper covering the New England Patriots also has a worldwide subscription base, and with Super Bowl LI running late into the night — the Patriots trailed the Atlanta Falcons, 28-3, mid-third quarter — it meant putting to bed an early edition of the Globe that reached homes in Florida (and perhaps other locations) with his fateful declaration:

Truly the most #fakenews moment of 2017 in sports, eh? Steve Harvey probably loved this.

Newspapers are dead, long live newspapers!

These covers apparently were all over the state on newsstands. Collect one while you can — it will be a fun relic to frame and hang in the ol’ mancave for years to come. Good conversation starter, we say.

Hey, we were raised reading the paper on a daily basis, and many folks over a certain age who work in this business — including ourselves — were former newspaper employees. This is in our blood, so we commiserate. When the deadline hits, you have to make a call. The internet obviously has changed much of this, but the Globe had to go with what it had: a seemingly insurmountable lead for the Patriots to overcome. Plus, that photo was absolutely a (lost) classic. Hard to go elsewhere when you have that thousand-words shot of a helpless Tom Brady watching Robert Alford run back his interception for a 21-zip Falcons lead.

Of course, the Globe as well as anyone should know never to count Brady out of any game, especially one as big as the Super Bowl. Perhaps hedging a bit on the finality of “A Bitter End” would have been the wiser editorial approach.

But perhaps this was the Globe’s quietly brilliant strategy: print papers saying the Patriots lost — knowing that, duh, they’re going to come back obviously — in the hopes that folks buy these instant treasures. Almost like the old baseball card companies that would print “error” cards and then retract them as a way to sell more cards and drive up value.

Yes, we still can’t help thinking in newspaper terms now and again.

Chicago police: Dozens watched girl’s sexual assault on Facebook Live, but no one reported it

Chicago police said Tuesday that about 40 people watched a live stream of the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl — and no one reported it.

The apparent sexual assault of the 15-year-old Chicago girl was streamed on Facebook Live and approximately 40 people viewed it in real time, according to police.

The young girl was reported missing by her mother Sunday night after she didn’t return home from the store, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The teenager had spent the night with a relative, attended church Sunday morning and headed to a nearby store after she was dropped off, the relative said. She wasn’t spotted again until about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, the Tribune reported.

WGN-TV reported that she was found on a porch crying.

“It hurts me to my core because I was one of the last people to see her,” Reginald King, the girl’s uncle, told the Tribune. “I want to make sure this never happens to anybody else’s kids, and if that starts with taking down this one group, I’ll make that my life’s mission.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that police are “making good progress identifying persons of interest” in the case but “no formal suspects named yet.”

The Facebook video has since been taken down, but not before screenshots of the video were shown to the girl’s mother so she could identify her daughter. Other relatives, like King, have seen the video as well.

“It was very, very graphic. She’s pulled toward the bed,” King said. “To have it put out there like that, publicly. It’s not right.”

King told the Tribune that a teenager told him about the video. He credited the teenager for doing “one of the bravest things” as he said adults viewed the livestream and did not come forward.

“What’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this, and they didn’t pick up the phone and dial 911,” police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told WGN. “That’s just not right and [we’re] working on it and try to bring it to a successful resolution.”

Johnson told WGN that he was shown images from the video by the girl’s mother.

Guglielmi told the Tribune that Johnson was “visibly upset when he saw the pictures of the girl and was dismayed when he learned that people were watching the incident live and no one called the police.”

“[Johnson] immediately escorted the mother into the district and called the chief of detectives to order a team of investigators to respond to the district immediately,” Guglielmi said.

Chicago Alderman Michael Scott Jr. said Tuesday that a suspect is in custody but did not identify who the suspect is. However, Guglielmi tweeted Tuesday evening that the assertion could not be confirmed.

STUNNING: Rachel Dolezal Releases Memoir On Her "Journey" From White Girl To Black "Sista" And It's Bad

Rachel Dolezal has just released a new memoir detailing her "Journey" from "rural white girl" to "woke soul sista" and is doing her best to promote her story. From The NY Post: In her heart, she’s still a misunderstood black woman. Rachel Dolezal — who convincingly passed as an African-American civil rights activist in Spokane, Washington, until her inarguably Caucasian parents outed her as white in 2015 — is now stepping back into the spotlight in all her bottle-bronzed, afro-hair-extensioned glory. Dolezal has penned a memoir in which she compares her travails to slavery and describes her harrowing childhood as a pale, blonde girl growing up poor on the side of a Montana mountain. As she toiled in the garden for her strict, Evangelical parents, she’d dream of freeing her inner blackness, Dolezal writes in “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.” See, she’d read her grandmother’s National Geographic magazines. So she knew about blackness. “I’d stir the water from the hose into the earth … and make thin, soupy mud, which I would then rub on my hands, arms, feet, and legs,” Dolezal writes. “I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert or one of the Bantu women living in the Congo… imagining I was a different person living in a different place was one of the few ways … that I could escape the oppressive environment I was raised in.” She was so poor, she wore dog-fur clothing and played ball with freshly-butchered chicken heads, she writes. Blessed freedom would come. But first, she had to survive her parents’ beatings, her brother’s molestation and her own wheat-pale skin and hair. Was Dolezal really assaulted by her brother? Did her parents really force her to eat her own vomit, and was she really born in a teepee? With so much of her life a blatant fiction, it’s hard to be sure — but it all sure makes for fascinating reading. Who knew, for example, that Dolezal is a bisexual who suffers from PTSD? On a brisk November morning in 1977, Rachel Anne Dolezal came kicking and screaming into a “painfully white world” she’d eventually grow to despise and discard. It may or may not have been in a teepee, but Jesus Christ was indeed listed as the witness on her birth certificate — Dolezal includes a photo of the document in her book. Life in the rural northwest, near the banks of the Kootenai River, was bleak for a young Dolezal.

No gender please, we're leftists.


Alternative facts? This is a whole alternative reality. Not to mention alternative biology.

In a Friday email to subscribers listing updated entries for its style manual, the Associated Press is urging journalists to avoid making references in news stories that suggest there are only two sexes in the human race.

“Not all people fall under one of two categories for sex or gender, according to leading medical organizations, so avoid references to both, either or opposite sexes or genders as a way to encompass all people. When needed for clarity or in certain stories about scientific studies, alternatives include men and women, boys and girls, males and females.”

The Stylebook issued further guidance for use of pronouns under an entry named “they, them, their.” Those third-person plural pronouns are preferred by some transgender or gender fluid individuals who say they are not comfortable with traditional male or female personal pronouns.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Associated Press has decided to unrecognize the existence of gender. Because gender is now politically incorrect. What might have been parody once is now just the media in the death grip of an insane left.

No gender please, we're leftists.

One morning we'll wake up to the left insisting that the sun revolves around the earth because it's the source of all social justice. And the media will scurry to insist that it's settled science.
