U.N. Panel Urges Changes to Feed Poor While Saving Environment.
The price of basic food like rice, wheat and corn has been rising sharply, setting off violent protests in Haiti, Egypt, Uzbekistan, Yemen, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia and even Italy.
Emphasis added. I guess the newspaper of record happened to walk in during a Songkran water-gun fight and just drew the obvious conclusion — that Thailand was having one of those food riots.
I guess that because the only other explanation, literally the only other possibility is that reporter Steven Erlanger, who is in Paris, simply made it up and his alleged “editors” were too busy to check.
The archive (proof) is here. This ridiculous story hasn’t a shred of fact, not a credible word in it.
