This is an all-new low for the "real reporters" at The Washington Post.

The newspaper got absolutely shelled (and rightfully so) on social media for its headline for an obituary on the founder and leader of ISIS, which read: 

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48

Austere. Religious. Scholar. The man was a mass murderer and killed his own children along with himself at the end of his life, but the Post remembers him as a revered religious scholar.
