UPDATE: "The NYPD did not disclose the url"

 
Last week, we ran several pieces on the pre-RNC fear-mongering of the NY Daily News. With no evidence other than police sources and an alleged internet posting whose url they did not reveal, the Daily News ran a front-page story alleging that protesters were planning to fool bomb-sniffing dogs in Penn Station into sounding an alarm during the RNC. Now our friends at RNCwatch have revealed that not only does the supposed posting not appear to any google search, it was given to the Daily News by the police department, who "did not disclose the url of the website where they found this information, they merely quoted from it."
