Matt Drudge: 'An idiot with a computer'

By now, everyone in South Florida over the age of 10 has heard of this tragic story.

From the Miami Herald:

Naked man killed by Police near MacArthur Causeway was ‘eating’ face off victim

It was a scene as creepy as a Hannibal Lecter movie.

One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked, and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp Saturday, police said.

The horror began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building.

According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away. Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.

The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.
And everyone over the age of 10 knows that the shooting and the incident that led up to it took place in Miami...not Miami Beach.

But that's not stopping one so-called "journalist" from fudging the facts - and the geography - surrounding a story that took place on the mainland side of the causeway in Miami.

After all, when you're right-wing blogger Matt Drudge, why let a few pesky facts get in the way of a sexy South Beach headline?

Here's how Drudge - himself a former Miami Beach resident - is playing the story today:

  1. It's Drudge, for Pete's sake. When does he ever deal in facts?


  2. In fact, the cannibal Eugene WAS in South Beach partying. His car was towed from there. The incident occurred on the causeway bridge as Eugene walked towards Miami. Here is what the Herald is now reporting:

    "Eugene had been in Miami Beach — in full party mode for Urban Beach Week over the Memorial Day Weekend — shortly before the attack. Eugene’s car, a purple 1995 Chevrolet Caprice, was towed for being parked illegally at 1100 10th St."
