Fell and Masonic: The Big Lie succeeds

Poor reporting by the Examiner in today's story on the latest accident ("Bicyclist struck at troublesome San Francisco intersection") at Fell and Masonic that injured a cyclist. To show that the intersection is "accident prone," the reporter links a previous Examiner story ("Neighbors pushing to slow traffic on Masonic Avenue in San Francisco") about accidents that happened nowhere near the Fell and Masonic intersection.

The Bicycle Coalition's long Big Lie campaign about that intersection has succeeded in establishing as fact the falsehood that the intersection is dangerous.
