WaPo becomes The Onion.
Via Daily Wire:
Early Sunday morning, The Washington Post published an article about the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Cornered in a tunnel, the terrorist leader “detonated a suicide vest, killing himself” and three of his children, reports CBS News.
The original title of the Washington Post piece read: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.” Then, in a bizarre twist, the title was changed to: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”
After receiving significant backlash, the title was changed for a final time: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48.”
On Sunday afternoon, The Washington Post’s Vice President of Communications said the following about the title controversy: “Regarding our al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly.”
