Default WTF is wrong with the New York Post?

Do they even pretend to be a news organization? They do this all the time. They put words in people's mouths.

HEADLINE: Curry: Waive me goodbye

Wow. Strong words. Unfortunately, Curry never said that.

Quote:
"I'm not taking a buyout, so that's not happening," Curry told The Post. "Definitely not. They can try to trade me if they wanted to. I hope it doesn't come to that.

"But I would just hope that if it came down to it, especially going into a contract year, that if [coach Mike D'Antoni] knows this wasn't the right place for me, they would make the right decision. Other than that, I'll do everything I can to be ready."

The Post does this all the time. They start with a headline that grabs your attention, then you read the article and its either a gross exaggeration or an outright lie.

Do they care at all about journalistic integrity or have they completely gone the tabloid route. At least PRETEND to be a newspaper.

I don't know why people bother. It's a newspaper that is literally written for 4th graders.

Waive me good bye could mean he is going to be traded or was given the option of a buy out...

media is about getting readers with some entertainment and sensationalism.

journalism is a lost art but basically its about real life issues.

No one is going to read the post for its hard hitting facts and journalism... its about media.

not to mention it is incredibly racist.my dad had me boycotting the post since i was in kindergarten (i was reading newspapers at an early age).Peter Vescey is a total prick.he harps on negativity and tries to annihilate minorites with his ignorant,uninformed columns.not to mention the fact that he's regurgitated stuff thats been reported on ESPN and tried to spin it like it was his "breaking news".He's like the Carlos Mencia of sports journalism.
