"works for a press agency that covers the United Nations" ≠ "UN worker"

Shuaibu once worked as a communication specialist at the United Nations, spending two months there in 2013, according to a U.N. spokesperson. He was no longer employed there, however, and was apparently working for the Nigerian Press, which covers the United Nations.

Well, that explains how the Nigerian royalty has all that money they're wanting to give me if I send them a cashier's check.

Former UN worker != UN worker

Clickbait BS headline, the one factoid that would have made the news slightly interesting was completely wrong.

edmo: Hero?


Exactly what I thought.  Some guy put the people the lowest level of the banking food chain (tellers don't make shiet) in fear for their lives.

These aren't Banksters.  They're ham & eggers trying to feed their families.

Yeah this submission should be redlit, and subby and the modmin who approved it should feel bad.

Wow. Hero tag for a bank robber attached to a headline that's almost totally fabricated.

And it got greened.

Impressively stupid.

FTFA: "Man Who Worked Near United Nations" and "worked as a communication specialist at the United Nations, spending two months there in 2013"

I worked as a foot messenger at the U.N. in 1988.  The initial contract for a teenage foot messenger back then was 3 months.  This dude is not even close to being a UN employee.

ps:  Contrary to popular belief, UN staff are not diplomats.  No immunity or anything like that.  Just a G-4 visa that allows you to live in US soil while working there.
