NewsBusters Repeats Bogus Claim About Carjacked Mercedes With 'Coexist' Sticker
Topic: NewsBusters

Jack Coleman writes in the midst of a Rachel Maddow-bashing rant in an April 22 NewsBusters post:

In fairness to MSNBC viewers, I doubt that most of them and a majority of the network's former primetime hosts are at risk of becoming jihadist bombers. I am equal confident, however, that many MSNBC viewers have adorned a bumper on their vehicle with a "Co-exist" bumper sticker -- like the one placed on the Mercedes allegedly carjacked by the Tsarnaev brothers.

Maybe the brothers saw the sticker, maybe they didn't, but I hope this detail gets pinned down at Tsarnaev's trial, regardless of where it's held. The owner of the vehicle was sending a message with that sticker, along the lines of -- let's all get along, shall we? That's not how the sticker would be interpreted by predators like the Tsarnaevs. Their reading of it would be this -- unarmed driver who won't put up a fight.

Just one little problem: It's not true. The carjacked Mercedes did not have a "Coexist" bumper sticker on it.

Sorry to interrupt your Maddow-bashing with the facts, Jack.
