When The N.Y. Post Is Right

This isn’t the existential crisis you might think.  The fact that The New York Post has issued a responsible online news story — on Page Six, no less — shouldn’t come as too big a shock.  It will happen every now and then.  Just don’t hold your breath during intervals.

Cormac McCarthy is still with us.  Due to a social media hoax, for a short time some people thought he had passed.  When journalists learned Mr. McCarthy was still with us, Bryan Hood wrote an article which is better than a lot of things you see in The Post.

I’ll include a link to Mr. Hood’s story because it describes what to look for on a Twitter profile before deciding if a so-called breaking news story is posted in good faith.
