It Only Takes 20 Minutes to Shift the Blame

Update: I finally found the original, actual poster of the graphic depicting the New York Times shifting blame from the NYPD to OWS: FreakOutNation.

Via Ari Setsudo Pliskin:
Oct 1st, 6:59PM Eastern: New York Times publishes photo with the following blurb: “After allowing them onto the bridge, the police cut off and arrested dozens of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators.”

7:19PM Eastern: New York Times edits the photo blurb to reframe the Brooklyn Bridge arrests: “In a tense showdown over the East River, police arrested hundreds of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators after they marched onto the bridge’s Brooklyn-bound roadway.”

It only takes twenty minutes to shift the blame.
