The Newspaper of Record???
Last year, it was Eric Turkewitz who punked the Times on April Fools Day, brilliantly convincing them to run the story that he had accepted a position as the official White House law blogger.
Really, you'd think they'd have learned something from becoming a national laughingstock.
Maybe they did. Maybe they learned that incompetence is its own reward, because their fact-checkers blew it once more.
This time, it wasn't Turkewitz, though.
Mirriam Seddiq has the story.
