Yesterday we shared this blog exposing Woburn High School senior Niko Poulakidas who contacted Mike Lupica on Twitter, lied about being at the Red Sox game on Monday night, and claimed he was 15 rows behind a guy yelling racial slurs at Fenway Park.
Well we started interacting with him a lot yesterday as he realized the jig was up. He had been exposed and his 15 minutes of fame blew up in his face. More than anything he was a little shithead for pulling a prank like this and thinking it was harmless. Boston will be labeled as a racist city for another 25 years because of this. Adam Jones had NO ONE backing up his story until Niko came long. Mike Lupica gladly printed his story, but hasn’t said a word since Niko was exposed.
Anyway, we really just wanted Niko to publicly admit that he lied, even though we all know he did already. Not that we need him to tell us he did, but because it would FORCE Lupica and these other hacks to retract their work. We made it clear to Niko that we don’t think he’s a bad kid. We’ve all been 17 before. He’s just a kid from Woburn who was trying to be funny in what he thought was a harmless prank. He had no idea it would get this big. So we told him that if he came forward and admitted he was lying, we’d call off the dogs and ask turtle riders to leave him alone. We all fucked up when we were kids, but luckily many of us did it before social media was a thing. Here’s how the negotiations went:
So there you have it. Confirmation from Niko that he has contacted Mike Lupica and made it clear that everything he printed in this article was a lie. At the very least, Niko told Lupica that he was considering telling everyone that he was lying. Any journalist with ANY amount of integrity would retract a column of this magnitude since it’s clear that the person he interviewed isn’t stable and isn’t willing to stand by what he said. Lupica has this information and has left the column in tact, because the mainstream media is FAKE NEWS. Donald Trump isn’t kidding. It’s literally fake. Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake news. No other way around it. He knows he has a false story up, and he’s keeping it up anyway because it fits his agenda. But please, tell me more about how Turtleboy can’t be trusted as a source.
And as you can see at the end there, Niko feels conflicted because he’s worried about what all his friends will think when he has to admit that he lied to millions of people. Too bad Niko, we were willing to help you out, but you half assed it. The offer still stands.
P.S. Niko is apparently an Orioles fan too:
Adam Jones plays for the Orioles. Just sayin.

Can’t F’b believe it!!! Sox are in Baltimore tonight and I happened to be at the game! Wouldn’t ya believe that a guy from SOUTHIE came out of the stands and hit Adam Jones with a 400lb water heater! The guy from southies name is don yee-Fauria. Where is Lou-picka? I got gold here! Kevin, barnacle, loopicka where are ya!
In other news I’m an untrustworthy gr33k.
Nobody hates niggers more than Big Schill. Love that he’s all over this.
Turtleboy is right, we were all 17 once, but I would like to see the kid just he lied and it would be over a lot sooner. He can even paint it as a prank that blew out of control, even though I don’t think it was. Turtleboy did give him multiple oppurtunities to correct it, so my sympathy for him is very little. Hopefully he learns from it.
I was 17 myself not that long ago, I never even dreamed of making
up race-baiting stories!! Seriously, what’s up with these people? Do they
WANT turmoil and disorder?
I trust you, disgruntled ragamuffins, WAY MORE than I trust “news”.
As a Journalist I have been disheartened by the behavior of most of the media. I currently don’t work in the field because of this lack of integrity in my profession. I am not saying I was perfect but I never allowed my personal opinions to influence my work I thought the point was to collect as much information as I could on all aspects of the story and present the fact’s for the readers to decide it wasn’t always easy because I have opinions but as soon as a journalist sways a story with their own opinions it ceases to be news, it becomes nothing more than a column and I was not a columnist I was a journalist. TBS gets it right albeit in a much more colorful and fun manner but that’s the perfect formula. The truth written in a way That is fun and intriguing.
Keep up the good work TBS maybe others will follow your example.
You write “as soon as a journalist sways a story with their own opinions it ceases to be news, it becomes nothing more than a column”. I love reading TBS and I agree that this blog does a better job digging for truth than most of the MSM. But don’t kid yourself – TBS absolutely injects their opinion into just about every story. But what I do respect is the consistency. That opinion doesn’t flip-flop due to wavering public opinion.
You mean the MFM just ran with a story that fit its narrative without doing one iota of fact checking?
I have commented on Mike Lupica’s article, letting him know that we know Niko reached out to him and came clean about his fabrication. I asked when we can see an edited article, if not a complete retraction. Something tells me my comment and question will fall on deaf ears.
Thank God we have some place like turtleboy to keep the Lefty liberal bias media in check. Keep up the good work. I know they’ll be coming for you but don’t ever back down.
Sometimes good stuff comes from stupid mistakes. The kid exposed a lying hack and upped TBS credibility. His college should encourage a dissertation on how to mold the fickle media to suit you needs or something to that degree. Between this kid and Aaron Jones the real problem in Boston has been exposed and it’s not racism.
You know what guys I am less worried about a 17 being a 17 year old. Than about two sausage sucking politicians (Marty Walsh and Charlie Faker) who immediately jumped on this Jones guys nuts and started apologizing for the city and state. First of all neither one speaks for me, and second of all how does that look? Instead of giving pause and waiting for oh “evidence” they jump right up confirming Mass and Boston are racist. Turtleboy should question that!
Baker and Walsh just do what they must do as politicians in this loony state-
bow down to the angry SJW mob or else their careers are done. Sad but a reality.
Another example of poor journalism. Once again, Turtleboy got it right and exposed this for what it was — an outright lie!
Too many people out there are trying to divide us and pit us against one another. It makes me wonder if they are trying to start a race war.
Dividing us is the reason the Dems are still relevant as a political party. If they didn’t have that – they would cease to have power and is why they have been relentless with this agenda since they got slaughtered in the last election. They really are despicable human beings.
Oh Christ, Shut the Fuck up with the right wing playbook! Will you still be bitching after the midterm elections??? Let me guess, It will be dead people or illegals voting?!?! Pathetic!
Another job well done TBS. Thank you. Unfortunately Mike the Mudduck wont retract anything cause that exposes HIM as a fuckin lying hack too.
I don’t see anything in that conversation where he actually admits that he lied. Just reads like a scared kid that’ll say anything to make the situation go away. I’m not saying I believe the story one way or another. But, there is no clear admission.
Shaughnessy is a bigger hack.
I feel for this kid in a small way. He made a mistake and has not a clue on how to get out of it.
I have ZERO sympathy for this moron & other race baiters. I also despise “people of color” who blatantly use racist terms for Caucasians (including Hispanics) & Asians, esp using the MSM as a platform to do so & face no negative consequences & are given butt pats for doing so. How is it “brave” to paint a whole race of people negatively, when if the roles were reversed; there would be cities ablaze (think Ferguson or Baltimore 2.0), heads exploding, jobs lost, veritable beat downs, death threats & possibly even murders! However, I digress… This shitheel could save face simply by following the suggestion to tell the truth, yet he refuses to do so & it’s all because he was spoonfed then made to guzzle the Indoctrination flavored [D]onkeypunch which has shown that when 1 is caught in a lie concerning a hot button topic such as racist leanings, 1 does not simply own up & apologize (nor write a retraction), rather 1 must double down & create an even more volatile situation, esp. when a “honkey/cracker” is the scapegoat.
Lupica is and always has been a hack!!!
Give me Dan Shaughnessy any day.
