Remember that LA Times story we called bullshit on, like, weeks ago?
The LA Times called bullshit on it today, too.
“In relying on documents that I now believe were fake, I failed to do my job,” said Chuck Philips, the reporter behind a story accusing Sean “Diddy” Combs of being behind a shooting of Tupac. “I’m sorry.”
The Deputy Managing Editor made a statement of his own: We should not have let ourselves be fooled. That we were is as much my fault as Chuck’s. I deeply regret that we let our readers down.”
So there you go.
I was right, the mainstream media was wrong.
