A Big Boston Marathon Media Mishap!

I've been on vacation in Minnesota for the past week, but I feel like I haven't missed a thing since like you, I'm glued to the radio, TV, and other news sources following the Massachusetts manhunt.  

Unfortunately, since everyone is trying to give the most current scoop, there's been quite a bit of false information about the Boston Marathon bombing, reported every single day, but this might be the most embarrassing media mishap so far!
Yesterday here, the "Minneapolis Star Tribune" ran a Macy's ad for PRESSURE COOKERS right next to their Boston Marathon bombing coverage.
Know If you don't get the awkward irony here, a pressure cooker was used to make at least one of the two bombs at the marathon . . . just like the one in the ad from Macy's.
To make matters worse, the ad ran in both the print version AND the online version of the paper.

Obviously, this isn't a funny matter, and like you my thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this tragedy, but I guess I'm saying that I appreciate the outlets that are just trying to report accurate accounts for us, rather than the ones that are trying to break every part of the story even if they get it wrong!
