Picture the Homeless
For the last two weeks, the New York Post has been running a bunch of really inflammatory articles about how shifty homeless people are coming to this city for supposedly luxurious free shelter accommodations. Obviously, this is totally ridiculous - anyone who has ever stepped foot inside a shelter knows they're awful. But the Post doesn't care about the truth; they just want to scare & stir up conservative readers who already think homeless people are a public menace.
