BOMB BLAST IN TURKISH CAPITAL OF ANKARA: AT LEAST 27 DEAD, 75 WOUNDED.

More: Akbar Airbush! The above link to the Ivory Coast hotel shooting goes to the Daily Mirror; I had planned to link to the similar London Daily Mail story I saw earlier today. But as I was assembling this post, the Daily Mail broke out their airbrush after a Drudge-lanche. Fortunately though, their original headline is still cached by Google:

daily_mail_akbar_airbrush_3-13-16-1

Other than the last name of article’s co-author, their article has been entirely de-ackbarred. The Daily Mail is usually a steaming garbage pail of Website, with salacious Fleet Street-style headlines focusing on the worst aspects of American life and celebrity nihilism — and not coincidentally, it gets more readership than the dull, predictably pious leftwing virtue-signalling New York Times as a result. I wonder why (he asked rhetorically) the Religion of Peace™ gets a PR touch-up there?
