    Article

    The police questioned a witness who was Arabian. The New York Post wrongly called this man a suspect, which prompted many other news outlets to do the same. At least the ones that view the New York Post as good. In it's haste, The New York Post also reported an initial count of 12 dead.

    But this false report prompted one blogger to seek out and publish all the information he could find on the witness including name, home address and pictures of the man (or at least a man with the same name on Facebook).

    The article I linked describes what is going on. I really hope people don't try to take matters into their own hands because of this bad journalism

    Maybe the New York Post will be sued for jumping the gun. After all this is America and we have an abundance of blood sucking lawyers who will gladly take the case.

    Whoever is responsible for this erroneous reporting should have HIS name, address, phone, photo, facebook page, vehicle and license plate number, everything else that can be dug up...it should all be reported in as many media outlets as possible. Give him a taste of his own medicine and maybe he will learn his lesson, probably not but maybe.

    Great point jamesn. That would only seem fair to give him a taste of his own medicine. Won't happen but it should.

    I don't think the misinformation being reported is exclusivy Right Wing , the Liberal side are no slouchs in this area as tonights news reporting goes on both sides trying to be the first to have the allegged photo's of the individual or individuals,so far the FBI has cancelled 3 press conferences scheduled for to/day concerning the investigation and possible suspects, this is driving the Press corps absolutely bonkers.

    It now is being reported that the Saudi that was considerd either a suspect or a victim is now being rapidly being deported with the hearing transcripts being sealed as classified, this is what I mean by this Administration shooting itself in the foot because by doing this deportation under the guise of National Security gives all the theorists fodder which to feed on,and to what end?

    That was from a Hannity show. Any credible evidense? Because I could find none.

    I believe the new yok post is the culprit, but it is known that the deportation hearing was heard and the transcripts are sealed for national security reasons and he is being deported and his visa was pulled,that is from several other news outlets, BTW, I didn't get that from the hannity show, so it seems that other people have heard the same thing. It may be possible that this individual may have a very minor in the bombing that because of the information he supplied he was given a deal.

    I googled Steve Emerson who was the journalist who was on CNN saying that the Saudi student Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was the FBI's person of interest and was being deported on National Security grounds, but later( 6 hours later) on the Megan Fox show ,he changed his tune somewhat and is now saying that the student is not being deported.

    Given one has to take every Fox news show with a grain of salt it is a wonder your kidneys still function.

    And by the way, Emerson is a fruitcake. He sees conspiracies in the frozen food aisle at his local mom & pop store.
