The shockingly shoddy journalism of 'Back to the Future's' newspaper

via pixel.nymag.com

Back to the Future's newspaper may be a great plot device, but its editorial instincts are less sound. New York Magazine exposes the shoddy and inconsistent practices of the Hill Valley Telegraph, which will devote front page headlines to a local man's unremarkable gambling win but report on a Presidential veto without even bothering to mention the law in question. Even Marty McFly's time-traveling shenanigans — so helpful for other civic institutions — seem to only make its coverage worse.
