Louisville’s Courier-Journal Gets Smacked Around For Piece About United Victim’s Past


There is a lot of anger being directed at the Louisville Courier-Journal for a piece about the past of the man dragged from a United flight Sunday.

The C-J reported that the paying passenger who was removed and bloodied by airline police is David Dao a doctor who was convicted of multiple felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud or deceit in November of 2004.

They tweeted out their story…

…only to find that not many people felt that the doctor’s old conviction had much to do with his getting beaten up for not wanting to give his seat to a United employee.

BREAKING: The C-J probably didn’t see this coming when they pumped this out.
