Hoaxer Getting Helped by Journalists?This story
ticks me off.
Not the hoax itself; that's a typical antiwar college student being an idiot. But get this bit:At the request of the two professors and the university, The Standard-Times has agreed to withhold his name.
That's absurd. He's not a child, he's 22 years old, which indicates he's probably a senior in college. He tried to become a hero to the left wing, but he's been exposed as a fraud. His name is part of the story.
