The Independent, the Nazi and the Croatian fascist

Sometimes it feels like this blog is almost solely dedicated to discussing the Independent, but they do make the most interesting cock-ups. Today’s it emerges that they may face a law suit about a story two days ago in which they had a picture of former Nazi war criminal splashed across the front page. Well they thought they did…

It turns out the picture is actually a Croatian actor dressed as a member of the Croat fascist movement from the Balkan War. Nothing to do with the Nazis at all. And now the actor portrayed is (understandably) considering suing the paper for implying that he is a Nazi.

You know the worst part? I picked that as my paper to read that day…
