The Gold Standard of Modern Journalism

Frankly, I don't care what kind of tattoos anybody has, and don't know why anyone else does either. Yes, even those gangster tears that indicate murder; if you want to deface yourself, by all means that's up to you. Nonetheless, here is another liberal tool bag willing to potentially destroy the life of an American hero why? I have no clue. Just to push a political agenda it seems.

Looks like the New Yorker  actually issues an apology over the error.

"
The New Yorker issued an apology Monday that distanced itself from Lavin, according to the National Review.

“The New Yorker has just learned that a staff member erroneously made a derogatory assumption about ICE agent Justin Gaertner’s tattoo. The personal social-media accounts of staff members do not represent the magazine, and we in no way share the viewpoint expressed in this tweet,” a spokesperson said. “The tweet has been deleted, and we deeply regret any harm that this may have caused Mr. Gaertner.”
