Recently, a man in Toronto was arrested on suspicion of being a serial killer preying on residents of Toronto's LBGTQ neighbourhood. Here is an image of the suspect:

Today the local right-wing rag ran that picture on their front page with the headline "BAD SANTA", which, I'm pretty sure, is a new low, even by the Sun's standards.

Hopefully you guys see this one before it gets deleted and the author fired. Just in case, I'm copying the text:



@EricLiptonNYT wrote:Impressive how articulate and well educated these kids are from this school. Obviously a good school. Another sad reason for yesterday's events. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/15/us/d ... oting.html

And not saying it would be less sad it there were poor kids, obviously. Just such a waste to see kids with so much opportunity before them wiped out.


Oh, buddy.

Note from the Editors: As we were reporting this story, Newsweek Media Group fired Newsweek Editor Bob Roe, Executive Editor Ken Li and Senior Politics Reporter Celeste Katz for doing their jobs. Reporters Josh Keefe and Josh Saul were targeted for firing before an editor persuaded the company to reverse its decision. As we continued working on the story, we were asked to take part in a review process which, we ultimately learned, involved egregious breaches of confidentiality and journalism ethics. We believe that subjects of the story were shown parts of the draft, if not the entire piece, prior to publication by a company executive who should not have been involved in the process. At an on-the-record interview with the subjects of this story, a company official asked editors to identify confidential sources. On-the-record sources were contacted and questioned about their discussions with Newsweek Media Group reporters. We resisted their efforts to influence the story and, after learning of the review’s ethical failings, the reporters and editors involved in this story felt they would be forced to resign. At that point, a senior Newsweek Media Group executive said the company's owners would ensure independent review and newsroom autonomy going forward. This story was written and edited Tuesday, free of interference from company executives.
