New York Times: How Could It Get This Wrong

From the New York Times of Monday May 8, 2016.

Because of an editing error, an article on Monday about a theological battle being fought by Muslim imams and scholars in the West against the Islamic State misstated the Snapchat handle used by Suhaib Webb, one of the Muslim leaders speaking out. It is imamsuhaibwebb, not Pimpin4Paradise786.

So, the Imam Suhaib Webb uses his name for his handle, and the Times can’t get that right!!  More importantly, and there is a story here, where did Pimpin4Paradise786 come from? This may be a member of the Times Editorial Board’s “Handle.” It seems to comport with the intellectual vigor of that board.
