It appears that the weekend editors responsible for today’s print edition of the New York Post forgot to check the calendar.
On a day that New Yorkers consistently (and quite rightly) remind themselves, and each other, to “never forget” the awful events of 9/11, the New York Post editors appears to have forgotten. Huh. The online version corrects this apparent oversight, with a lead story that reads New York Remembers 9/11.
Proving a negative is a tough thing to do, in much the same way it was nearly impossible to prove that Saddam Hussein didn’t have any weapons of mass destruction, and so the logical conundrum of “evidence of absence” applies to the NY Post’s print edition on today, September 11th, 2017. But a very close perusal of today’s print edition found nary one mention of that awful day in New York City.
A call to the news room asked why there was no mention of 9/11 earned the reply of “it will be in tomorrow’s edition.” And an email to the Post publicist has not yet been returned.
Never forget? Maybe the NY Post editors think that it’s time to move on.
I don’t think so.
UPDATE: Turns out that there was barely a mention in today’s print edition. A NY Post spokes person points out top of page 10, there is a follow to Sunday article about 9/11 worker and there was also a small box noting the events happening today.
