Dewey Defeats Truman!

I mean “Red Sox Defeat Yankees!” I see that Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post holds its sports writing to the same standards as its news coverage:

“The Yankees couldn’t get the job done,” read the [N.Y Post] editorial. “The hitting fell short and the bullpen simply didn’t deliver. It’s a crying shame that Roger Clemens’ career had to end on a losing note.”

As it turns out, the Yankees actually beat the Red Sox 6-5. In other news of the actual world, as opposed to some deranged make-believe world cooked-up in the minds of the NY Post staff, Hillary Clinton is not running for president in 2004.
