Code Pink plants fake Blackwater press release, dupes Politico!

The anti-war group Code Pink put out a press release in Blackwater’s name, saying they were creating a new “Department of Corporate Integrity” in an attempt to “put the mercy back in mercenary.” Hilarious! Political news site Politico fell for it, running a story ripped right out of the release, as most news is these days. When asked, a Blackwater spokesperson said “We do some silly things, but we didn’t do that.”

Yes, silly silly things like, you know, shooting children for fun!
