I mean, come one – who is dumb enough to think a person can fill up plastic garbage bags with gas?
But instead of completely ridiculing their sister paper’s reporter and shamefully admitting they should not have repeated such an obviously incoherent story, the Vancouver Sun and Province double-down on it today:
Canadians are again a source of controversy south of the border after a man with B.C. licence plates was photographed apparently filling a garbage bag with gasoline at a Bellingham, Wash. gas station. (see here)
Think about the conversation that happened between these 4 editors and their reporters:
Editor “Go do a story on that guy filling garbage bags with gas.” Reporter “Ok.”
Sun News’ Ezra Levant sums it up perfectly:
How stupid do you have to be to believe this story? How stupid to actually write it, edit it and publish it?
