New York Post says 12 dead; others report 2

Romenesko reader Mike Connor writes: “The New York Post still has its exclusive, reporting 12 dead in the Boston bombings, while every other news outlet says the number is 2 dead. And this is at 6:45 p.m. Eastern Time – about four hours after the explosions. [The screen shots below were taken at 7:15 p.m. ET]

“The Post will hopefully be proved wrong.”

UPDATE AT 7:45 P.M.: The Post has taken down its “12 dead” headline; it’s still in the story, though.
