The Washington Post's headline about the death of ISIS leader led to well deserved mockery

Power Line:
As Scott noted a little while ago, the Washington Post has made a fool of itself with its obituary for al-Baghdadi. The Post’s headline for its obituary–its second attempt, apparently–was “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.” That prompted mockery across the internet:




...
Osama Bin Laden, spiritual leader and architect of lower Manhattan urban revitalization projects, dead at 54. https://twitter.com/yashar/status/1188473675894284289 
...
There is more.

I suspect the Post trapped itself into this ridicule by trying to contradict Trump's description of the terrorist meeting hsi demise in a deserving way.
