A Critical Mess

Did you hear about the altercation at the Seattle Critical Mass ride on Friday? Well if you read about it Saturday in the Seattle Times you got a story that made it sound like a group of crazed riders attacked a driver. Today the the Times posted the story again–this time with comments from the cyclists–and a very different version of events emerges. Other witnesses now say the driver involved ran over over a cyclists’ leg before the altercation started. It’s hard for a reader to figure what exactly happened, but you have to wonder why the times posted the story on Saturday without any quotes from cyclists who were actually there.
