Rachel Maddow takes an extended look at the journalistic atrocities committed this week by the New York Post. That list includes: Reporting that a “Saudi national” had been fingered as a suspect, and placing on its cover a photo of two innocent fellows under the headline “Bag Men.”

Wrong on both accounts, noted Maddow. No apology on both accounts, noted Maddow as well. “Apparently they just do not care,” concluded the host, in an altogether too-charitable summation of the New York Post’s mindset.
