Unreal! Was this Vox’s worst screw-up yet? (Spoiler: It’s egregious) [photo]

By

Truth.

To Vox’s credit, there is this:

@eriContrarian @GPollowitz It's hard to be wrong that often, even on purpose. Looking at you, @voxdotcom.

Kudos! Heck of a job, guys!

What a day for Team Vox. RT @GPollowitz: Another bang-up job @voxdotcom https://t.co/uwore69w5R"

Twitchy readers know about the “bad day” a Vox-er was having earlier. But this latest screw-up takes the media malpractice cake.

What happened now? Oh, just this:

Another bang-up job @voxdotcom https://t.co/IqLFWE7UoJ

CORRECTION: In new video, John Crawford appears to have been shot before dropping the toy rifle: http://t.co/J9TOCN90N2.

— Vox (@voxdotcom) September 24, 2014

Wait, what? Before dropping it? The original headline:

Video: John Crawford dropped toy gun before he was killed by police in Walmart http://t.co/YEuT9TVFOl via @voxdotcom

This is… Jesus. This was murder: http://t.co/M8npTvtC8G

Oops, never mind, people: That whole “dropped the gun” thing? Just kidding!

A guy is dead, a potential Fed indictment against the cops and @voxdotcom couldn't bother to read a few wire reports b4 writing its piece

— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) September 25, 2014

Egregious.

@redsteeze @voxdotcom In which ignorant VoxBoxers explain the facts they don't know and the legal terrain they don't understand. @DLind

@GPollowitz @instapundit why do that when it's way easier to just write what you want to have happened? @voxdotcom

— Dave Gray (@docgray81) September 25, 2014

@GPollowitz @voxdotcom Narrative over news.

— Rogue Monk (@Nel_Mezzo) September 25, 2014

Yep. It’s Vox. Enough said.

Are there any Vox stories that don't have a correction? https://t.co/5U1MqBUz0p #ExplanatoryJournalism

— AG (@AG_Conservative) September 25, 2014

An evergreen tweet for Vox:

MT @voxdotcom CORRECTION

— S.M (@redsteeze) September 25, 2014

Heh.

@redsteeze @voxdotcom Is Vox Correction the actual name of the site? Catchy

— Steve G (@StevenGoldsch) September 25, 2014

And an exit suggestion:

@voxdotcom @instapundit At this point Vox should launch a sister site just for Vox corrections.
