The Sun Wot Got It Wrong Again

In today’s online version of The Sun, Rupert Murdoch’s piss poor and biased, right-wing rag, I spotted a crucial bit of misreporting of the storyline of the play Richard McBeef by Cho Seung-Hui, the VT Killer.

In Crazed Killer Sent Shocking Vid by Emily Smith, US Editor, she says, “One play told of a 13-year-old boy who brandishes a chainsaw at his abusive step-father. The man then kills the boy.”

This isn’t true, it’s Sue, the boy’s mother, who brandishes the chainsaw, “She grabs a chainsaw and brandishes it at Richard”.
