Accuracy in Media

Fox News reported that the black college student had posted the threat, then took it down. Too little, too late:

Authorities said a college student responsible for a mass shooting threat that forced the University of Chicago to cancel classes Monday posted that he would kill 16 white male students or staffers at the prestigious college to avenge the shooting death of a black teenager at the hands of a Chicago police officer last year.

Jabari R. Dean, 21, a student at the University of Illinois-Chicago, appeared in court Monday afternoon and did not issue a plea on a charge of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce. A federal criminal complaint said that Dean admitted to FBI agents that he had posted the threat Saturday, but took it down shortly after posting it.
