The Washington Post is one of the most esteemed newspapers in our country. But like all journalistic operations, they make mistakes. They recently wrote a piece about the rap group, Public Enemy, in which they claimed the Public Enemy said that 9/11 was a joke(meaning the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001). The song they were referring to was “911 Is A Joke,” which came out in 1990 and referred to the 911 emergency phone number service. Here’s their retraction.

A Nov. 26 article in the District edition of Local Living incorrectly said a Public Enemy song declared 9/11 a joke. The song refers to 911, the emergency phone number.
