I just saw this in Twitter and I figured it was a photoshop. I went to the WaPo and it was not a joke. I took a screencap:

I m not surprised if I get to read stuff along the lines of “Orange Man had the Muslim Pope killed because racism!” or some crap like that.


Chancellor Adolf Hitler, Vegetarian and Animal Lover tragically commits suicide. Untreated depression is suspected.

He killed some Jews, gypsies and warred with some neighbors.


UPDATE: I guess they figured they screwed up big time and corrected the headline.

  1. One way you can tell this is a deliberate action and not a mistake is the fact that the headline you showed is the *second* one. The first correctly described him as “terrorist-in-chief”. So clearly the WP chiefs decided they didn’t want to describe this decade’s most evil terrorist as evil, and concocted that fawning replacement headline instead.

  2. I guess the slogan they have under the paper’s name is an expression of their strategic direction? They sure didn’t market it that way.
