Another "oops!" moment for anti-Occupy media

Here's another reason to kick The Media's fucking face in.

The right-wing media had a field day this morning when New York City police reported that DNA samples from a chain that was supposedly used at an Occupy protest matched samples found at the scene of an unsolved 2004 murder of a young woman. Every major national news outlet reported this story just the way the NYPD told it.

Now it turns out that was completely wrong.

Officials reported later that the reason the DNA matched was that somebody from the medical examiner's office had handled both items, and it was their DNA.

So far, only the New York Times has reported the correction. Other outlets continue to report the original version of the story even though it's been discredited.
